Problem of Edward's age

View mindmap
  • Leadership in war
    • Why was there concerns about a minor on the throne?
      • Faction
        • Potential development of faction and fear that England would return to civil war (like under Henry VI - War of the Roses)
      • Unrest
        • As England was to be ruled by a minor (could not lead troops into battle, appeared weak, lack of experience and prone to exploitation ), social unrest was likely to happen.
      • Image
        • Weak image (coin of 1553 portrayed him on horseback, no longer a child)
    • Concerns it would create instability as Edward could not lead troops into war and other states might look to exploit the potential weakness
