Throughout the history there are many events that implied the sacrifice of family members just to get rid of any threat to the throne and to gain more power. In the late Middle Ages England had already been ruled by many different dynasties. Peace was rarely the case. But what we call nowadays “War of the Roses” also hides many bloody disputes over the throne. This conflict, at the center of which the noble families York and Lancaster were, should not only characterize England, but also find their way into the literature of the coming centuries.
Lin-Manuel Miranda who wrote the American musical Hamilton, which displays many different characters and their actions. The one character who’s actions essentially was the cause of the tension between him and the U.S eventually leading to a revolutionary war, was no one other than the great King George III. In the first song “You’ll Be Back” the king sings about his love for the U.S and how they’ll come back to the crown, but he can’t see past his madness and realize his actions and unfair treatment was the cause to the revolutionary war. In the song “I Know Him” King George seems to be still stuck in his old ways and in a great mood believing the U.S will fall apart with its new president since Washington stepped down. In the song “What Comes Next” George III acknowledges that the U.S is now free from him, but he shows his madness by believing the U.S will fail without him.
He had to return after gathering support and military power to overthrow and claim the title of emperor. Kublai was Genghis Khan’s grandson, having to wait through several conflicts for the throne as heirs claimed it and died before it fell into his hands. The empires under the rule of Vladimir and Kublai were both brought together and unified. Vladimir began to spread the idea of paganism over the Slavs but soon switched to Christianity, uniting the people under his rule and leaving the
Immediately, Parliament raised concerns over how Britain would finance the war. Queen Anne of Great Britain made a speech on the opening of Parliament in November 1710, stating that the public credit was in horrible condition given the current state of Britain and the continuing war. William Thomas Morgan, a writer for the Academy of Political Science, argued the idea of the South Sea Company stemmed from this, as it brought forth new ideas to handle the rising debt. While debt concerns played a role in the creation of the South Sea Company, the company did not originally form as a means to take on the public debt. Given the Bank of England’s agreement with Parliament in 1697, the South Sea Company could not begin as a bank.
Although Macbeth is crowned king in Act Two, it becomes evident that he does not possess these three qualities that are required to be a good king. To begin, Macbeth does not demonstrate temperance. After Macbeth receives a report about Macduff, he becomes angered and plans to declare war. This piece of information is revealed in a conversation between Lennox and an unnamed Lord. The Lord explains that both Malcolm and Macduff are in England, and Macduff is attempting to form an alliance with the people of Northumberland.
These frightened people agreed to help Columbus and his men, because it was better than the alternative, just like Ariel and Caliban agreed to work for Prospero. Disease and war were the equivalent of Ariel’s tree and Caliban’s language barrier. Language is used to hold people accountable for their debts and establish hierarchies. These debts and hierarchies define power in colonial times as well as in The Tempest. Prospero and Columbus both reflected Ashcroft’s description of establishing power, for example, they used naming to demonstrate power.
Tackett in the middle of his book tends to observe the fact that the main reasons behind the King’ decision to flee to the Varennes was because the King was not satisfied about his current position in the country. After the 1789 Revolution and the creation of the constitution, the King’s power was limited and distributed. The King had the feeling that he has already lost his power to National Assembly and his life is in dangerous and he is not safe. As the result of creating a constitutional monarchy, the King was required to share his power. As Tackett in his book states that “the electoral system, patched together by the royal government in 1789, had brought in elites of local, regional, and national stature from every part of the kingdom.”(p. 119) In order to bring back his power, the King planned leaves the country and asks help for foreign army to regain his power and launch a counterrevolutionary against the new republic.
Cromwell's time as Lord Protector changed how the Crown and Parliament interacted and worked with each other. His army laid the foundation for the Army's in England that came after. And he changed the landscape of religion in the isles, strengthening the Protestant majority and tearing down the Irish Catholics. His crusade against Charles the I and subsequent reign inspired the American colonists to go against military dictators. Though his time as a leader is remembered both negatively and positively his influence cannot be
The papacy tried its best efforts to end the war. Jacques Fournier became the Pope in 1334 and took the name, Benedict XII. At the start of the war in 1337, he attempted considerable efforts to prevent the outbreak of hostilities, however he did not succeed. In 1378 Pope Urban VI was elected the Pope by the College of Cardinals. The Cardinals regretted their choice and selected Pierre Roger, who was elected the Pope in 1342 as Clement VI.
In that time Spain had very serious internal problems, and in the 18th century there was a war called the War the Spanish Succession, where two dynasties (from France and Austria) clashed for the throne. Fragmented by the war, Spain at the beginning of the 19th century was destabilised; the former Spanish Empire overseas quickly disintegrated with the Latin American war of independence and eventually the loss of the colonies remained in the Spanish-American War of 1898. Spain was not involved into the First World War, due to this neutrality, allowed it to become one of the main suppliers of any kind of material for both sides. For example, Catalonia was one of the most important providers of German uniforms. That is just one example but it contributed in so many ways and it took a great advantage of it.
