They began as an attempted coup d'état by the Irish Catholic gentry, who tried to seize control of the English administration in Ireland to force concessions for Catholics. Unfortunately for them, their coup failed and the rebellion developed into an ethnic conflict between native Irish Catholics on one side and English and Scottish Protestant settlers on the other side. This was all started by Catholic fears of an impending invasion of Ireland by anti-Catholic forces of the English Long Parliament and Scottish Covenanters who were defying king Charles’ authority.Because of this, the rebels suspected association with Charles I which helped to start the Civil war.

The Hundred Years War (117 years) was caused because of three main reasons. The first reason was political instability. The Capetian rule of France died out, so the rightful heir was the King of England. However, French nobles stated that the French monarchy could not be passed down to a daughter, so they decided to give to a cousin family of the Capetians (Valois). Even though several French nobles passed their humble abodes down to their daughters, they could even imagine giving the French monarchy down to an Englishman, basically creating a superpower of the Middle Ages.
The main cause of King Charles death was that he was consuming too much power, raising taxes unreasonably, ignoring the Parliament and imprisoning those who did not pay up. Charles believed in the divine right of kings and thought he could govern according to his conscience. Charles ' problems revolved around religion and a lack of money. The disagreement between Charles ' and Parliament has been going on for several of years. Many of his subjects opposed his policies, and would charge unreasonable taxes without the Parliaments consent and would recognize his actions as those of a tyrannical absolute monarch.
At the 1603 the Stuart Ruling has started where the king of Scotland James IV takes the throne as James I at England. He dissolves the parliament three times because he believes he was always right and there were many taxes problems. “King’s are called gods because they sit upon God’s throne on Earth” (James I). James had eight children, but three survive and they were Charles, Henry and Elizabeth. When James at 1625 dies Charles his son took the throne and comes to be known as Charles I.
Continuing the intolerable act turned the colonists even more against the British. The Americans started to create this enormous hate against them. Because of the harshness of the act, it made it impossible to go against the parliament. Inspiring the American Revolution. Seventeen years ago many decision went wrong and many right.
Henry asked the audience, “will it be when… a British guard shall be stationed in every house,” which reminded the colonists of the Quartering Acts. These acts had angered the colonials a lot because they had to house soldiers, and the soldiers disrupted their family life. As a result of this act, the people got even angrier at the British. Later on in his speech, Henry stated his most famous line, “Give me liberty or give me death.” This line was said at the end of the speech to leave a bold statement. Patrick Henry did this to achieve his goal of motivating the people to revolt rather than to sit and listen to the British laws.
The other reason is there might have been catastrophic results because of not knowing about the truth. The third reason manipulation was bad for Ender because it stole his innocent. Another factor that explains why manipulation is bad is Ender becoming a cold hearted and strict person.

Out of the Flames follows a Spaniard named Michael Servetus who was imprisoned in 1553, Geneva Switzerland for crimes against the Catholic Church. He simply wanted to share his thoughts with the world by publishing a book on the nature of Catholicism. He escaped execution in France but was later caught in Geneva due to his darker skin revealing his identity. John Calvin, his arch rival, ordered him to be burned alive for heresy. Heresy was considered one of the worst crimes because it could affect the minds of the faithful Catholic people.
So what was the point of the war if in the end he was murder and they ended up losing everything. It doesn’t make sense why they killed, because someone didn’t want to be Christian. Maybe they had their own religion. So to me it looks like the war was for nothing because even nowadays they are many different religions out there and everyone has their own opinion about religions. I do see even now if you’re not a Christian you get treated differently.
