    pretty much any throne they might choose.  There was a real dearth of people with valid claims however, because HVII had one of the sketchiest.

      who had the strongest claim was the Duke of Buckingham, which is why that alliance with him was so important.  Also why the marriage to Elizabeth of York was so important.

        think he did it because he knew the Princes were dead and expected the kingdom to support him as king.

        The whole role of Buckingham in all this is rather mysterious, but then not much really is known.
