      • Strafford also tried to raise forces against Henry in midlands

        • Earl of Lincoln who put all this together fled from Henry's court,joined failed plotter Lovell at court of Margaret of Burgundy
    • Battle of Stoke field 1487
      • Henry gathered a group of advisors(some victims of Richard III)
      • Two armies met at East stoke, feared he might be double crossed like Richard III
      • Army led by Earl of Oxford(Earl of Lincoln killed)
      • Henry's victory was very significant as this battle rather than Bosworth brought to an end the Roses. Henrys position became much safer
    • Perkin Warbeck imposture 1491
      • Over 8 years claimed to be Richard, Duke of York.He started in 1491 until he was executed in 1499 after escaping Tower of London

      • Both younger brothers of Earl of Lincoln, Suffolk fled to Flanders in 1498,came back in 1501 but fled again to the court of Emperor Maximilian
        • Along as Margaret was politically opposed to Henry VII Suffolk was safe
          • Treaty of Windsor 1506-more friendly relations were restored -Maximilian agreed to give up Suffolk. Henry VII did not act kept him in Tower of London, Henry VIII acted and executed him in 1513
    • Henry Percy,the Earl of Northumberland
      • He had supported Richard III but did not fight for him at the Battle of Bosworth.He was arrested by Henry once he became king.

      • Duke did not fight for Richard III at Bosworth.Like his son he pledged his support for Henry VII(son rebelled in 1487)
      • Took his lands away from him when he dies-he did nothing wrong,but his heirs did and they should be punished.
