King Henry VII's mother was Margaret Beaufort. The Beauforts were excluded from the succession. So how strong was Henry VII's claim to the throne?

My understanding is that the claim was very weak. I’m reading a book called ‘Uncrowned Queen’ so it should be good to understand more. Will get back to you!

HenryVII was not only his mother's son, he also had a father...
His father was (afaIk) son of Catherine of Valois, and a half brother to HenryVI, who died without issue...
Everytime a monarch has no issue, the question of who is the first or the most suitable heir is a problematic one. Which is why HenryVIII went to such great and tragic length to secure one.
Margaret Beauford was a great granddaughter of John the Gaunt and thus had a claim to the throne, albeit not an overly strong one. And I presume at that time several people with equally weak claims simply fought for dominance. The Tudors simply had the best connections and the most money.
RichardIII made several tactical mistakes in making enemies at too many different fronts.

When Mary Tudor was stripped of the title of princess, she became a lady-in-waiting to her half-sister Elizabeth. Mary wrote a letter to her father. King Henry VIII put Mary back in the line of succession.

On September 1, 1532 Anne Boleyn was created Anne Rochford, Marquess of Pembroke, owning her title in her own right. To support her title, Anne was given Crown lands with a value of 1,000 pounds a year.

In 1546 King Henry VIII made peace with France. Before this when England and France were at war, why did King Henry sell off some monastic lands?

At one time Queen Mary I viewed her half-sister the Protestant Elizabeth as a direct threat. Elizabeth was briefly imprisoned in the Tower of London. However, she was not excluded from the succession.

On January 24, 1502 King Henry VII of England was involved with Scotland and England concluding the Treaty of Perpetual Peace. This was the first peace agreement between England and Scotland in over 170 years.

The Tyndale New Testament had been published in 1525. Tyndale's New Testament was banned by royal proclamation in 1530. King Henry VIII held out for the promise of an officially authorized English Bible being prepared by learned and catholic scholars.
