Mid-Tudor crises

About this session

A-Level | Subject: History | Topics: Tudors | Session Type: Depth study

Examine how Henry VIII’s children, Edward, Mary and Elizabeth used Hampton Court differently to their father.

Students investigate four important historic events which happened at Hampton Court Palace during the Mid-Tudor period, exploring them in detail through primary written evidence to decide what each tells us about the nature of power at the time.

Students are then taken on a tour of the palace to see how Henry VIII’s children, Edward, Mary and Elizabeth used Hampton Court differently to their father and what we can deduce from this about their respective reigns.
