This being obvious to the reader, the reader assumes that Henry must have either not had an eventful past, which is doubtful knowing the fact that at some point prior to the start of the novel he must have had aspirations to join the war; or that Henry must have had an emotional past which causes his raging alcoholism and slight sexual obsession. The result of the overwhelming sentiments in regular situations could fairly lead to alcoholism, but when Henry was placed in an environment where tensions were raised and normality was pushed out the door, he was faced with an ideally greater challenge than the war alone - Henry was faced with dealing with his intense emotions. Stubborn to his own feelings, Henry needed a near death experience to admit to himself that he is in fact in love with Catherine. When Henry first met Catherine, he is so much more different than he is at the ending of the book. The way Hemingway wrote about Henry almost indicated that Henry and Catherine had a very superficial romance, for instance the constant sexual interactions and minimal mature communication between the two.
Henry was not satisfied by the gender which Catherine provided. Henrys idea was to get divorced to Catherine and marry again to get the son that he desired for. However, the Catholic Pope refused to allow the divorce between Henry and Catherine. With the refusal of the divorce, Henry broke England from the Roman Catholics and began his own religion known as Protestantism. Through the decision in which Henry made the country’s’ history was changed.
Since Henry 's uncle was the Black Prince of Wales, Henry V feels obligated to uphold his family 's reputation by being a warrior king. But unlike his uncle, Henry V treats the people of England and of France as equal citizens. An old friend is found guilty of stealing from a church along the journey. Henry believes that a French church or a French store is the same as an English store and the law of England still applies, as shown by this quote.“We would have all such offenders so cut off, and we give express charge that in our marches through the country there be nothing compelled from the villages, nothing taken but paid for, none of the French upbraided or abused in disdainful language. For when lenity and cruelty play for kingdom, the gentler gamester is the soonest winner.” (King Henry V 3.6 113-20) Even though Henry seeks to unite the kingdoms of France and England to enlarge his domain, he also wants the people of France to like him.
Henry VIII remained unmarried for two years after Jane’s death. His fourth wife was Anne of Cleves. For many different reasons, Anne is the least known and talked about of Henry 's wives. Margaret Campbell Barnes focuses on Anne in her historical fiction novel, “My Lady of Cleves”. Barnes opens the novel with Anne’s marriage to Henry.
Even though the Queen wouldn't have attended Shakespeare’s public performances, being someone “[who] greatly loved drama” , it is almost certain that she would have attended a court performance at her palace. When Henry V was written, there was a substantial amount of political unrest and questioning about the future of the Monarchy. There were riots amongst the Catholics and Protestants and a civil war was feared. To exacerbate this issue, there was speculation about the Spanish kingdom's growing power. For these reasons, Shakespeare shapes the image of Henry V, making him an affable yet significant character that would reinforce the contemporary image of Queen Elizabeth.
Lastly, Henry defends Matthew from Hornbeck, and respects Matthew for who he is, even though Matthew is his opponent in court. When Matthew is taken to the doctor, Hornbeck starts to insult and denigrate Matthew. After a few exchanges between the two of them Hornbeck says that Henry is too soft-hearted because he is sad about the death of Matthew. Henry then replies, “Why? Because I refuse to erase a man’s lifetime?
What were the consequences? (c) Why did Henry VIII 's love for Anne turn to deep hatred? (D) She did not have a son, but gave England one of the greatest rulers of its time, Elizabeth I. To gather my sources I will go to the local libraries and my school library. Secondly, I will ask other history teachers in my school if they may appoint me
King Henry was married to his brother's widow to reassure the alliance his father had with Spain. On February the 18th, 1516 Catherine gave birth to the first heir, Princess Mary.

During this banquet, King Xerxes calls on Queen Vashti and she refuses to come. In a brash act of anger, and probably embarrassment, King Xerxes divorces Queen Vashti; he and his council decide he needs a new wife. Esther is an orphan who is being raised by her cousin; so when the king’s men came for young virgins to be in the king’s harem Esther joined. She eventually won the favor of the people in the harem and eventually with King Xerxes himself, becoming his new wife and Queen. Esther’s story, however, starts not when Esther is named the new Queen, but when Haman plots to destroy the
Hester was punished for committing adultery. Hester was put on a pedestal in front of the whole colony. She was humiliated, and had to wear a letter A on her chest for the rest of her life. Anne was banned from her colony, and everyone looked down on her for her sin. Nathaniel Hawthorne brought Anne into the story to represent a historical figure, help foreshadow the way Hester was going to be treated throughout the story.
