Question from Loredana - School paper on Essex Rebellion

At school I have this question about Earl of Essex Rebellion is a interpretation and i must to write how convincing is ... So the interpretation is like this : "When Elizabeth refused to renew [Essexs] patent (monopoly) of sweet wines.his credit structure collapsed. She had effectively condemned him to a life of poverty.Yet Essexs motivation went beyond this. A faction leader who was denied access to a monarch was an untenable positionAfter his disgrace, his urge to oust the Cecilian upstartsbecame obsessional."

Someone to help me . please .
Thank you !

Question from Charles - Tudor surname

So I just found this site and wondered if I could find out more about my ancestry through others. So I was born Charles Tudor and my father and grandfather have the same first and last name. I want to dig deeper into whether I have any descendants of the royal family. Do you have any ideas about my lineage or can help with it?

[Note from Lara - we've had this question before, I think, along with some recent general genealogy questions so I thought I would open it up for people to comment with some of their favorite genealogy resources and tips.]
