As standing armies were marching along the debate floor another issue was power of state authority over Federal authority. This clash in authority came from the juiced up legislatures which were often extremely powerful under the Articles. Considered by Rutland as ”a loose, incomplete agreement”, the issue for Anti-Federalists was the weak powerful government was morphing into an aristocratic system. Rutland points out a few words from George Mason, who believed the Constitution “Would erect at the outset a moderate aristocracy. Which would evolve into either a monarchy or a corrupt, tyrannical aristocracy”(42)and called on the hatred of monarchy by local people.
He despised the government exercising its power on the citizens, and frequently condemned decisions involving the use of such powers, as with the excise. (A) He believed that the central government should be given little power, while most authority should be delegated to the people and states. (B) The decisions he made often directly inhibited the function of the economy for which he aimed.
Montazuma the second was possibly one of the most important people in the entire history of The Aztec history. This is because he was the king/emperor when the Spanish concurs concurred the Aztec empire. He was born in 1466 and died in 29 of June 1520. According to one of the sources I used Montazuma was killed by the citizens of Tenochtitlan using rocks and spears because Cortez and his men forced Montazuma to admit defeat to his people. Letting the Spanish in to Tenochtitlan and showing weeknes was a horrible decision because the Spanish concurs saw this and used it against him.
The Kaisers were a group of monarchs and nobility that ruled the land with an iron fist, regardless of such positions of chancellorship and parliament. When it was boiled down to the bare minimums, the Kaiser could overrule, veto, and even force officials to abdicate their positions; as was seen with Otto von Bismarck being forced to resign by Kaiser Wilhelm II in 1890 due to personal feuds. One such disasterous Kaiser was Wilhelm II; Wilhelm was the third german emperor, and the last before the Weimar Republic. Wilhelm was a very intelligent man, but was arrogant when he spoke, and often most public correspondences that he took part in ended with a large group of people being quite furious, such as when he said “You English are mad, mad, mad as March hares.” directly to a popular London newspaper, insulting most of the british who read that.
How could the assassination of the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne launch all of Europe into war? For this question to be answered, one must first understand the conditions which the assassination took place under. Before World War I, Europe had not seen a major war since Napoleon’s fall at the Battle of Waterloo. Since then, Europe had experienced the second wave of the Industrial Revolution, which spawned new economies and technologies that shifted the paradigm of the continent. The new
Ferdinand II of Austria was a very strict, Catholic dictator who 's actions greatly impacted history. He made a name for himself, not only for good doings but also for bad ones. Ferdinand was a monarch who made quick decisions, which sometimes led him and his empire into a great deal of trouble. Ferdinand II of Austria was born on July 9, 1578 in Graz, Austria. Ferdinand was the oldest son of the archduke Charles and Maria of Bavaria, the daughter of the Duke of Bavaria.
On the Contrary, with the substantial gifts of land from Aristocracy and European Royalty it was able built up large and profitable estates in various countries to become bankers and therefore the organization wielded considerable financial power (Cavendish, Richard 8). After the end of the Crusades in the late 13th century, the Knights Templar was left without a military role. Instead, they turned to banking. Their secretive ways and enormous wealth excited jealousy and fear, even among kings. In October 1307, French king Philip IV ordered every Templar in France to be arrested and confiscated their French lands.
The Great War, or World War I, was the first major war to involve a vast majority of countries. Beginning in August 1914 and lasting until November 1918, the Great War’s occurred due to the underlying “combustible rivalry between Great Britain and Germany.” (706) Germany had allied with Austria-Hungary to form the Central Powers while Britain had allied with France, Russia and later Italy to form the Allied Powers. (705) However, it was the assassination of the Hasburg heir in the capital of Austria Bosnia that ultimately sparked the Great War to commence.
The Great War, also referred to as World War 1, was a cataclysmic Global War that lasted from July 28, 1914, to November 11, 1918. Over 30 nations fought in the war between 1914 and 1918, the majority of which joined on the side of The Allies, whose main Great Powers were Russia, France, and Britain, and were opposed by The Central Powers, including the Great Powers of Germany, and Austria - Hungary. Due to new military technologies, innovations, and the horrors of trench warfare, the Great War saw unprecedented levels of destruction, ravaging economies, accelerating changes in attitudes, causing 11 million casualties, and leading to the collapse of multiple empires. The Great War had huge and devastating impacts economically, politically, socially, and environmentally, all of which influenced an upcoming chain of events, and this marked our world in
The four main causes of World War I, imperialism, nationalism, militarism, and alliances, in my opinion, the one that takes the most blame for the war is alliances. The reason why is because it is what got most of the world involved. When the Archduke was assassinated on June 28, 1914, it started the war. The allies of the sides fight with each other which were the Central Powers and the Allies. Then because some of the allies support imperialism, they compete for colonies and an example of this is France and Germany both wanting colonies in Asia as well as Africa.
Throughout history, it's been evident that we rewalk the same path, time to time. In European history, a common theme is power being challenged. The conflict for power has been over kingdoms, empires, and even the ability to rule one's self, with freedom and rights. In the nonfictional book, A Little History Of The World by Ernst Gombrich, Gombrich displays how history does indeed repeat itself through short stories of European history.
The Magna Carta was created in 1215. It was an unsuccessful attempt to bring peace back early to England civilization. King John ruled during this time period. The first baron war forced him to create the Magna Carter. It eventually became known as the Great Charters of liberties.
While both the ancient Roman Empire and Tang dynasty have long since fallen, many lessons can be learned from how these two once great Empires were able to expand as well as maintain their empire. These strategies have stood the test of time and are still relevant today. Even during different time periods as well as in different regions in the world, several of the same strategies were used by both empires. Their ability to expand their territory and create significant innovations would aid to the success of their respective empire along with leave a lasting mark on history.
