How did World War 1 Start? There have been many wars in the world all for different reasons. However, World War 1 was one of the bloodiest wars that wrought across Europe. The War was so violent and miserable it was called “The War to End All Wars,” because only one alliance would be left standing.
Problems that contributed to the rise of Napoleon Bonaparte Before the French Revolutionary war, France was the most powerful European country. It was the most powerful because of it's constitutional monarchy. Later on, France had faced many problems that led to the French Revolutionary war. The French Revolutionary war was a rebellion from the peasants of France, which made up almost 98 percent of France's population, against the king and the higher class. The peasants were angry at the king because, he was taxing them, even though they barely have land to live on (spielvogel, 341).
Feudalism: Its Rise and Decline With the transformation of the Roman Empire, the empire would no longer be a universal culture. With an ineffective government and no armies, the former empire experienced mass anarchy. Due to its weakened state, the empire had become more vulnerable. Because people need security, a new concept would arise, this concept would be known as feudalism.
Why? Mentioned before, Domat was a royally appointed writer and he owed his position to King Louis. Therefore, his duty was to help people realize that King Louis XIV is a great leader, and that the new government is a change going towards the right direction. Since he worked under the king, he wrote “On Social Order and Absolute Monarchy” knowing that he would be able to convince France to accept not only their new king, but the absolute monarchy government. He proved to be very successful once this was read by his attended audience. He was so successful that King Louis XIV wrote him a pension (Domat).
He came to Russia with 600,000 soldiers and left with 100,000 soldiers. The reason he lost this battle and other battles for example like the battle of Waterloo, was because he was way overconfident. All Wellington had to do is use the same strategy as Napoleon would use and that is how he beat Napoleon in the battle of Waterloo. But at the same time, he used his victories to hide his losses, which increased his popularity even more.
In addition, Beowulf is also generous because when Beowulf arrives back to his homeland. He is carrying many riches from his battles against evil in Hrothgar’s land. He goes and talks to his king, whereupon he gives all of it to him and the queen, even a prized golden collar. Beowulf simply said that all he gained was gained as a retainer of his king, so it all belonged to him (lines 82-83). This shows that Beowulf had no greed and did not desire any gold or riches.
By 1824 King Louis XVIII was succeeded by his Brother Charles X whom also assumed absolute power and created new laws restricting the rights of the citizens. He attempted to overthrow the parliament when elections didn 't end in his favor, rid the citizens of the right to vote and rejected Frances constitution. It was these actions that caused Frances initial revolution in 1830, the people demanded more rights and made it so that Charles X would be the last Monarch with absolute power. However, 18 years later many of Frances citizens were still terribly unhappy with their government King Louis Philippe was extremely corrupt, many people were still unable to vote, a major recession made it so that many citizens were barely able to eat. Despite all of this, the revolution of 1848 in France didn 't gain much traction until King Louis Philippe refused to expand the industrial and baking franchises.
To many, monarchs were God 's form on earth. King James I of England said that "The state of monarchy is the supreme thing upon earth; for kings are not only God’s lieutenants on earth, and sit upon God’s throne, but even by God Himself they are called gods..." (Document 2). Like King James I, people believed monarchs were needed because they had power like God. Kings and Queens were essential and brought goodness to the land.
However, by the late 1520s King Henry VIII began inserting his power into Ireland due to the influence of Thomas Wolsey at first his power resulted in policy making. During this time many small wars broke out between Irish lords and England however Henry VIII’s authority did not grow aggressive until 1530s when he sent a 2,000 men army into Ireland to control the area around the Pale, since this was where the Kildare rebellion was taking place. By the end of the rebellion King Henry VIII took all of the Kildare’s land and killed the males, so the House of Kildare could no longer continue. Henry VIII no longer trusted the Irish Lords and began appointing English nobles.
Beowulf possessed the poised demeanor necessary to defeat all evils by the arrogant swing of his sword. The commitment shown by lending his life to the welfare of his people was imperative in order to be called a flawless warrior. Beowulf embodied the determination that Anglo-Saxons saw as unmeasurably valuable. If nothing more than just fiction, Beowulf is the ideal hero of the people from who he originated. “They said that of all the kings upon the earth he was the man most gracious and fair-minded, kindest to his people and keenest to win fame.”

King David was a very important man in ancient times for many different reasons. For example, he was king of Israel for 40 years, he killed the notorious giant named goliath in the war between the Israelites and the philistines, and he is responsible for bringing the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem. He lived for a total 70 years, was born in 907 BC and died in 837 BC. Most people know King David as David from David and goliath but as I said, he did much more than that in his lifetime. I’ll begin my speech by talking about his days before he became a king and what most people might not know about him.
Why Charlemagne’s coronation as emperor in 800 called “a sign of the emergence of a new European civilization,” had to do with his vision to how he sees Europe. His main Ideology was to not only rule but to leave his doctrine to everywhere he has dealt with. The reason why his ideology became the emergence of new European Civilization was due to his desire to unite his fellow Europeans.

Charlemagne valued education and worked to spread this throughout the empire. He had great success in many battles, and built a strong military.
