Some would suggest they were dysfunctional more than ever with so much power and not enough change in there government policies. In the 19th and 20th century decline of the Ottoman Empire started to appear and final establishments of borders after WWI. They lost their grip on Greece after it fought for independence in 1821, then Romania, Serbia, Bulgaria and Montenegro (Yakub 2151). The Great Powers -France and England- took over what today is the middle east. The Ottomans knew that going against those powers and having a Turkish war would terminate
Historian Allan Mitchell writes that Bonapartism was “a model for Bismarckian politics”. There is evidence that shows that Bismarck was indeed influenced by the way Napoleon III ruled in a fast changing society racked by tension between bourgeoisie and proletariat. Historian classify Bismarckism as Bonapartist as he never founded his own political movement and avoided becoming dependant on retaining confidence of the monarchy. Furthermore, there were some smaller German states that agreed with “Bonapartism” as they saw it as a desire to revise in a reactionary sense the constitution given in 1848. This is significant as Bismarck would have needed to appeal to all German states any by incorporating Bonapartist views into his policy he would be appealing to the smaller states, which in turn would support
Ultimately, whereas the northern provinces (Holland, Zeeland, Utrecht, Friesland, Gelderland, and Ommelanden) found the Union of Utrecht, creating the United Provinces, the southern provinces such as Hainault and Artois established the Union of Arras in 1579. The northern provinces repudiated the sovereignty of Philip II of Spain in Netherlands in the Act of Abjuration in 1581, but when William of Orange was assassinated in 1584, they would lack a strong
King Henry VIII was one of the most impactful and controversial leaders of his time. He was the second ruler of England from the Tudor line, and he officially came to power in 1509. Henry VIII used his European power to eventually separate from the Catholic Church and formed the Church of England which caused major controversy and a power exchange. The monarch of England ruled for over four decades and was the primary instigator of the Reformation. Although King Henry VIII was a devout Catholic, his thirst for power, selfish motives, and desire for independence all contributed to the separation from the Catholic Church and forming the Church of England.

There were two major leaders that led the Protestant Reformation in Europe. The first was Martin Luther who wrote “95 Theses”, which were new religious beliefs, and nailed them to the door of the Wittenberg Castle Church. Eventually, he was outlawed and found refuge with Saxon princes, but his ideas continued to spread throughout Germany
Note that the two societies had excommunicated each other long ago, which conveys why the plea of help was made 40 years after the problem of the Seljuk Turks began. However, Pope Urban II did make a speech on behalf of the Byzantine Empire, with the intended audience oh the Roman Catholics. Pope Urban II intended for the Roman Catholics to defend their “allies.” The Pope motivated the Roman Catholics to fight by constantly disparaging the Islamic Caliphates, which was inclusive of the Arabs, and claiming how the Muslims were worshippers of the Devil (Urban
Many people say that World War I was one of the bloodiest conflicts that the world had ever seen. There are many reasons why people think this and one of them is due to the innovations in military during the late 1800´s. The world powers had expected a short war, but that was not the case. The immediate cause of World War I was the assassination of archduke of Austria-Hungary, Franz Ferdinand. But this was not the only cause of the First World War.
Occurring predominantly in Europe and the Middle East, the Crusades began in 1095 and officially ended in 1291 (History.com staff, 2010). This being said, the causes can be traced back to 1081 when Alexius Comnenus gained the Byzantine throne, becoming Emperor Alexius I, after years of chaos and invasions by the Seljuk Turks (History.com staff, 2010). In due time Emperor Alexius would begin to set his sights on reclaiming the Holy Land from the Muslims. Seeing that this task would require more than the Byzantine’s men, he reached out to Pope Urban II of the Roman Catholic Church asking him for troops (History.com staff, 2010). The Pope made his decision public at the 1095 Council of Clermont in Southern France where he raised the proposal for all able Western Christians to raise arms to aid the Byzantines.
Suleiman’s rule is characterized by great emphasis on close personal ties, whereas his fearsome father, Selim, executed his viziers frequently. Indeed, Ibrahim’s status almost rivals that of the Sultan himself, with the honours that are heaped on him, and his marriage to the Sultan’s sister, Hatice Sultan. As for Roxolana, she has now borne the Sultan 5 sons and a daughter against the customs of the Sultan’s ancestors, which has caused a great public scandal. Some inquiry has brought to light the information that neither of these two illustrious personages are Muslim nor Turkish in origin. In fact, they both began their lives as captive slaves, and the fact that they have now risen in the ranks and wholly embraced the lifestyle, manners and religion of the infidel is proof of Lucifer’s work.
The Safavids Empire was held together in the early years by conquering new territory such as Tabriz in 1502 and north western Iran in 1510. Not only that, Safavids Empire also strive to defend from the neighbouring Ottoman Empire after it gained independence from it. Yet in the seventeenth century, the Ottoman threat to the declined of Safavids Empire. There were many factors that made Safavids Empire falls. By the start of the eighteenth century, it had become clear that the empire had weakened considerably.
It all started with the corruption of the Roman Catholic Church. All the church cared about was money and not about it’s own followers. Its own followers had no idea how corrupt the Catholic Church was and it was up to Martin Luther to finally reveal the truth about the Catholic Church. Once they knew the truth, the Catholic Church completely changed and for the better.
