The Bishop Wars took place in Scotland and England, when Charles I tried to convert Scotland from Presbyterianism to Anglicanism. After invading Scotland twice, Charles I and English troops were defeated by the Scottish. This military blunder had effects in Ireland, where the English feared a Catholic revolt against the Crown and in early 1641 there were proposals to invade Ireland to subdue Catholicism in case an Irish Catholic army was planning to land in Scotland or England. The other factor that lead up to the 1641 Rebellion were the Plantations. The Plantations had left thousands of Irish without land or work, including clan leaders, and this left many Irish Catholics resentful towards the English crown.
He had Thomas Cromwell in Ireland working to convert Catholic Irish into Protestants and in 1539 Cromwell began the dissolution of religious houses and orders. Although the Catholicism outside the Pale was dissolving, some monasteries continued to exist on a smaller scale. Archbishop Browne suppressed many monasteries during his time by influencing the “Old-English” of Ireland. Even though King Henry VIII’s dismantlement of Catholicism in Ireland was happening it was not successful because it was too difficult for enforce, and the Protestant Preachers did not speak Irish. Therefore the preachers had no ability to persuade the Irish people into converting.
They also suffered massive losses. The land was destroyed, partly due to Stalin 's 'scorched-earth ' policy. It was impossible to calculate the number of dead, but it is estimated at several million. However, Churchill was very suspicious of Stalin, and believed a powerful Russia could be just as big a threat as a powerful Germany. Churchill wanted to 'shake hands with the Russians as far to the east as possible, ' to stop them gaining more land.

*Irish War of Independence: In 1916, Ireland Republicans proclaimed the Ireland’s independence from the United Kingdom, and constituted IRA (Irish Republican Army). When IRA started a fight, British government constituted BaT (Black and Tans) and slaughtered Irish civilian.

However, the partitioned republicans (they had different opinion about Anglo-Irish-Treaty) kept fighting against each
their widely differing political and religious beliefs lay at the heart of the civil war. while the cavaliers supported King Charles and his Divine Right of Kings, the roundheads fiercely opposed them and wanted king Charles under complete control from parliament for they too were angered by Charles’ dissolution of parliament. Oliver Cromwell was their leader. John Pym, John Hampden, Denzil Holles, Arthur Haselrig, and William Strode were the 5mps who were arrested because they encouraged the Scots to invade England during the Bishops Wars.They had also intended to impeach the Queen, Henrietta of France but were arrested right before their attempt.

The most basic theme of good versus evil is driven from Loach’s ideological standpoint, where the misuse of power against the vulnerable is clearly seen in the early scenes of the film. Ireland is a country struggling to gain independence from an occupying British force and evil is clearly depicted by the brutality of the Black and Tans. This was a special British Army unit renowned for its cruelty, which was employed in Ireland to stamp out rebellion. This theme is further developed as the film moves to the historical signing of the Treaty of Independence in 1921. This agreement dissected the Republican movement with pro and anti-groups turning on each other.
One of the biggest issues that the new government had to face was the exaggerated terms of the Treaty of Versailles. These terms limited the Weimar Republic from fully developing and growing to become a fully fledged society. The signing of the Treaty of Versailles meant torture for the country and the people populating it, and a vast majority of the population felt it was betrayal from the German government, naming the Weimar Republic officials the ‘November criminals’. Many people that supported the Weimar Republic changed their views after the terms of the Treaty of Versailles became publicly available since they felt the Weimar Republic was just the result of losing the war rather than the actual choice of the majority of the population. The problems faced by the Weimar Republic
The Qing dynasty began to diminish in strength power and influence in the beginning of the 18th century due to an increase in internal conflict and pressure from foreign powers. The greatest challenge the dynasty faced was the lack modernisation. When Empress Cixi came into power she failed to develop the out-dated dynasty because of her conservative ideologies and she made every attempt to destroy those who did advocate for change. Her ruthless response to the self-strengthening movement and 100 days of reform program were clear indications of her disapproval towards modernisation. The dynasty’s unnecessary involvement in the Boxers rebellion further crippled the state.
