1 Henry Tudor
1.1 Spent 14 years in France, made friends and material support in this time
1.1.1 As Henry was friends with the French, they gave him money and ships in order to launch his invasion. Foreign support was key. Henrys army was strengthened by the french mercenaries under Philibert de Chandee Chans dee'expert tactics that he got from the Swiss and his mercenaries helped Tudor win as Richard had no tactics Tudor's army was increased by 800 men when Sir Richard Corbet joined Henry Tudor V Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth 1485 22nd August Henry won the battle as his tactics were key, he had more foreign support and Stanley's joined his side during the battle after turning on Richard. Tudor landed in wales with an army of 500 men, supported by 1,500 french troops, Rhys ap Thomas and his 800 men, then a further 500 with William ap Gruffud. An army of 5,000 men. King Richard had atleast double that amount.
1.2 He had a weak claim to the throne, his mother- Margaret Beaufort a direct descendant of King Edward III. His father- Edmund Tudor was the son of a French Princess who was married to King Henry V
1.3 became king in August 21st 1485

3 Richard III
3.1 He had seized the throne and made parliament proclaim him as King Richard III. He imprisoned the two princes ( Edward and Richard) in the tower of London, declared his brothers marriage to Elizabeth Woodville to be illegal, their children to be illegitimate and that disqualified them from claiming the throne
3.1.1 The two princes were never seen again and Richard appeared to have murdered them. This split the support of the Yorkist for Richard and gave hope to the Lancastrians to seize the throne
