HISTORY
Asked by Tim

If King Henry VII wrote a letter to the Pope about the Treaty of Tordsillas, what might he have written?

In the Treaty of Tordesillas (1494) Pope Alexander VI. divided the world into two halfs by declaring the Western part of the atlantic as Spanish property (what I refer to as Spanish was Castilian and Aragonese at the time) and the Eastern part as Portuguese property, so these two powers would not negatively interfere into each others' plans of discovering and conquering new parts of the world. Henry VII who ruled England at that time could have either protested against such claims, as England did not receive any rights within the treaty of could have supported the Spanish who he later had an alliance with after he had accepted marriage between both his sons and Katharina de Aragon. She was the daughter of Ferdinand de Aragon and Isabella de Castile who asked Pope Alexander VI for a regulating treaty in the first place. So the question here is would Henry VII have tried to strengthen England's position directly by claiming rights for England within the treaty or would he have acted indirectly in favour of England by supporting his ally.

Oxford grad student and highly resourceful tutor with 12 years of experience.

I’m a sought-after tutor with twelve years of teaching and tutoring experience in Canada, the United Kingdom, Jamaica, Czech Republic, Bahrain, and Ghana. I taught at a private school in Bahrain for six years, and for four of those years I was an IBDP Literature/IBDP Language and Literature teacher whose students not only achieved some of the best results in the school, but achieved results that often exceeded IB world averages. With my experience as an IB teacher, tutor, and examiner, I’m highly attuned to the requirements and expectations of the IB programme; I have a well-rounded understanding from the vantage points of teacher and assessor. I’m in possession of excellent IB materials, resources, and exemplars. Many students have earned 6s and 7s under my tutelage. I can transfer this knowledge and expertise to A-level and GCSE tutoring as well. I’m familiar with 11+ entrance exams and have extensive experience preparing students of all ages for different standardised tests. I instil lifelong study skills in my students. As a certified SAT Associate Supervisor who has administered and invigilated over ten sessions, I have expert knowledge on SAT preparedness, content, time management, and essay writing. I've helped numerous students with their UCAS applications, university interview preparation, and personal statements. For those who are English language learners, I have considerable experience teaching English as a second/foreign language. I’ve prepared students for the IELTS and I’ve helped numerous students in Canada and Czech Republic (of varying levels of English proficiency) with conversational English, grammar instruction, and speaking/listening/writing/reading activities. I’m committed to my pupils’ academic excellence by encouraging their intellectual curiosity. My teaching style fosters independent inquiry, and I pride myself on my passionate, engaging, student-led lessons that empower pupils to take ownership of their learning. I encourage my students to analyse and think critically, and my ultimate goal is to provide students with the analytical tools to continue their studies independently with confidence and conviction.
