King Edward III placed a tariff on England's export of wool. From 1336 onwards royal revenues from wool export were introduced.

After his wife Anne Neville's demise, if King Richard III had married his niece Elizabeth, the daughter of King Edward IV, how much would this marriage have strengthened Richard's hold on the throne?

In June 1258 King Henry III was forced to agree to the Provisions of Oxford, by which a council of fifteen barons was created to govern jointly with the king.

Hmmm.  I have thought about that.  It would be very shocking to marry your own niece, nephew, uncle, aunt.  Maria I of Portugal married her uncle.  It might have solidified his hold on the crown, but he would have had to obtain approval from the Pope, as they were too closely related for any such marriage to be recognized.  If it was recognized, that could have brought additional players to come to Richardís side.  A Papal dispensation would have taken time that Richard didnít have.  So ultimately, no.

In 1150 Geoffrey Plantagenet formally invested his son Henry as Duke of Normandy. In August of the following year Henry gave homage for Normandy to King Louis VII of France, a ceremonial declaration of his ducal right and dignity.

Really interesting article Cyril. The history behind the rise of the Tudors was always very murky to me.

In 1428 why did Parliament pass an act to forbid Catherine of Valois to marry without the consent of the king and his council?

I believe that the grey men who ruled the country with a baby-king were afraid, that the Queen could marry (aka ally herself with) someone over which the grey men had no influence and thus risk losing their grip on the power that is the far too young souvereign.
The new law said, that only the souvereign could allow a marriage of the Queen Mother and only once he reached maturity (which was at age 18, fun fact considering that many kings started ruling, waring and whatnot far earlier). So for Catherine that meant years and years of waiting.
Apparently however she didn't, since her younger sons were all born before Henry's 18 birthday, and their ligitimacy was never in question...so a marriage with Owen Tudor seems to have taken place....

Edmund and Jasper's legitimacy was questioned, at least by those who had reason to suggest that either Owen and Catherine weren't married or that their marriage wasn't valid or that as "sons of a Welsh farmer" . 

Considering what ended up happening (continual "cousins war") it's not surprising that Parliament was concerned what would happen if Henry VI had a step father and younger "uterine brothers".

Isabella of France (c. 1295-1358) was Queen of England as the wife of King Edward II. Pope Boniface VIII had urged the marriage as early as 1298 but it was delayed by wrangling over the terms of the marriage contract.
