A study of the role and development of parliament in the Tudor period, examining the constitutional position, political activities, and relationships of the two houses of parliament from the late middle ages until the accession of the Stuarts.
This is a study of the role and development of parliament throughout the Tudor period. The author examines the constitutional position, political activities, and relationships of the two houses of parliament from the late Middle Ages until the accession of the Stuarts. She explores the growing importance of the Commons and examines the ways in which the Tudor monarchs, from Henry VII to Elizabeth I, attempted to exert their royal power. Topics covered include elections, patronage, constitutional issues such as the succession to the throne, the fundamental part played by parliament in taxation and other financial matters, the social and economic background, and the vexed and vital question of religion. Thoroughly grounded in contemporary sources, this account should interest scholars and students of early modern British history, political historians, and students of Tudor England.
