The rebels has an advantage because they were a long way from London and the ruling magnates were absent rulers so rebellion was easy to spread. They tried marching on London but had to give up because of the June harvests The tax for the war against Scotland was not collected but they did not achieve indepence.

The Pilgrimage of Grace

Tried to keep rebels local and onside by not marching on London and instead marched to Doncaster and Pontefract. The clergy got involved in the leadership and widened support. As many as 40,000 rebels supported. A pity that papal support didn' materialise for the rebels because this would have helped significantly. Aske avoided confrontation, especially when he negotiated a truce.

The clergy got involved and so widened support.Internal squabbles led to poor leadership. The petitions focused on the nobles problems, there was no mention of the peasants economic concerns. It gathered lots of support on the way up to London, but people deserted for the harvest.

Mary was stronger than Northumberland's forces and he was accused of treason. Lady Jane Grey's claim wasn't as strong as Mary's because Mary was Henry's daughter.

Wyatt got to London from Kent but got pushed back. French support never materialised. They had far bigger numbers than the royal army.

Northern Earls

The Earl of Northumberland and Westmorland made bad leadership decisions, such as not having enough money to pay their soldiers. They hadn't relaise that Mary Queen of Scots has been moved before they could release her and they hadn't judged correctly how long it would take to march from Durham and Tutbury. They also failed to get Spanish support.

Leadership was well planned but secrecy was not in evidence, they were betrayed quickly before the rebellion even started especially as this was close to London. Tudor spies were everywhere and the rebellion only had four men.

Started in London but only got as far as Fenchurch street before retreating. They only had 400 men, this was due to bad leadership where he blatantly advised his rebellion by putting on the play Richard II on the eve of the rebellion to advertise his cause.
