Some of the challenges she unfortunately faced included political decisions made during her rule, being easily overcome by emotions which lead making rash decisions, and the fact of being born a female apart of a royal dynasty. What some may not have anticipated is Elizabeth progressing into a much stronger queen with age and becoming wiser during her reign even if it took her many years to realize that she had the supreme rule and ultimate call of a monarch.1 Elizabeth’s gender presented her with several types of challenges as the monarch such as the limited access important government officials and ambassadors had to the Queen. As a female, it was unthinkable for any man to walk into the Queen’s chambers at any time they
How successfully did Elizabeth I tackle the problems of her reign? Queen Elizabeth the first, daughter of King Viii and Anne Boleyn, reigned from 1558 to 1603. She faced many problems during this period of time, solving them efficiently and successfully. She survived imprisonment during her half sister’s reign just to become one of the best queens of all time. Even though she was the reason the Tudor monarch to end, she was also the reason for many of the beneficial things that England had.
Nine years before, she learned of her future role and responded with the phrase “I will be good,” which she lived up to until her dying breath (Veldman et al.). During Victoria’s reign, she ruled under a constitutional monarchy, meaning that Queen Victoria had no real authority over government matters; however, she could influence and guide Parliament in her favor (“Victoria” The Royal Family). Queen Victoria is said to have been a good monarch, despite the disrespect the majority of Britain put on the royal family at the beginning of her reign (“Victorian Era: Information about Society & Daily Life”). Victoria came to rule “on the brink of a profound social and technological transformation,” which made Britain one of the wealthiest, and most populated, empires in the world (Felder 134). The Victorian Era, which was named after the British queen, was largely centered on the middle-class and the unjust regulations of the workers in society (Loftus).
Being a middle child, I have too often stood in the shadows of my naturally smart and talented older sister. It seemed that no matter what I did or how hard I worked, I would never be as good as her. It took a while to realize that I am my own person. There were things that I was good at that she wasn’t
Not only does she live through such a traumatic pregnancy and birth, but she leaves the hospital sooner than expected (Rash 213), she also heals more rapidly than most (Rash 221). Above all, Rachel Harmon was now a step ahead of Serena, due to the fact that she was the mother of Pemberton’s child, whereas, Serena would never live up to that. Serena was a very motivated woman who only dug a deeper hole for herself, as she became more and more preoccupied with the power that she possessed. Her dominance over everyone never seemed to get out of hand until she found out about Pemberton sending money to Rachel and then child, which is when she soon decided that, she was not married to a man that was as equal to her as she believed. However, it seems as if Serena was not as strong as most think, especially not if Jacob Harmon ended up being the one to murder her.
' 'England, they thought had never seen a queen more worthy of the throne than Margaret of Anjou." Someone said of her that "No women equaled her in beauty and few men surpassed her in courage and energy. ' ' Margaret of Anjou was a cunning character that fought feuding foe for her king and husband. She proved that even though she grew up in a war torn kingdom you may still become a queen with the courage of an undefeated warrior. Though she is extolled little in history, she should have been known for her fight as daring queen, and for her love as caring mother.
Since this also was a group of women, in this time period, they would not be taken as seriously and would not be respected. That is why their tactics may be a little invasive because that is the only way someone would hear them. Later, they started to get taken more seriously. “For the next two decades Willard led the Temperance movement as the WCTU became one of the largest and most influential women’s groups of the 19th century.” (History.com Staff) The whole expansion of their platform made them stronger as a whole but were still vulnerable to criticism. They never did reach their main goal and that was banning the use or manufacturing of alcohol, but they did make a huge impact on women 's groups from there
After the victory at Orleans, Joan was nicknamed “The Maid of Orleans”. She became a very well known leader, even though Charles still did not have full trust in her after her victory in overtaking the English army. After her success she continued to push Charles to hurry to Reims to be crowned. He and his advisors did not want to rush anything so they took their time on getting there and getting crowned. They finally entered Reims on July 18, 1429 and Charles was crowned Charles VII with Joan at his side.
Over the course of her life, Joan of Arc has been a very influential individual. From her childhood, to her premature death she was thought to be a unique woman. She didn’t do what a typical woman in the Late Middle Ages would have done. She changed the past, drastically shaping the future for worse and the better. In these next sections, we will share two of her traits and their effects on people from that time.
Mae West once said “Good women are no fun… the only good woman I can recall in history was Betsy Ross. And all she ever made was a flag.” Mae West did not just say this quote because she was a struggling actress that needed respect in the past, she said this on Betsy’s behalf that died trying to earn respect from other people including us. Even though she was castigated by many, over the course of her eighty-four years on earth she accomplished more than any could imagine like sewing for the Revolutionary War, joined a war supporting Quaker group, created the nation’s flag, and many other accomplishments that went unwritten in American history. Some might say that American hero, George Washington lied that he asked Betsy Ross to make the first flag American and that all two of her three husbands died because of her making the flag because of evidence. Nevertheless, it is absolutely critical that we
Although women haven’t usually been in a position of power but woman have done great things throughout history even though people might haven’t even noticed what they have done until Empress Theodora and Queen Elizabeth changed it forever by doing something very important Empress Theodora was one who impacted her empire by doing something very important. One way she impacted her empire was when she made the speech for justinin not too leave. That impacted them because when she made the speech justinian stayed to fight and they won(Almanac p27). It was important for him to stay because if he wouldn’t have stayed the whole empire would have been gone(Almanac p27). Another way was when she got married with justinian because when they
Women have played an important role throughout history but haven’t really been credited as much as they really should have been. Although women haven’t usually been in a position of power (because they were not allowed to be in a that position), they have still done a lot to contribute in crucial ways.

Empress Theodora impacted her society through Justinian, she made sure that daughters received their fair share of inheritance. Don’t combine your topic sentence with your concrete detail.
