The March Revolution, a nationalist movement, began mainly because of the want for a constitution. Prussia’s leader, Frederick William IV, was afraid of giving them a constitution because he was weak. He was a bad leader since Prussia’s success was only because of the work of administrators in the government, and they were the ones favoring a constitution. The March Revolution had some success because in response to the revolts, Frederick William IV allowed a Prussian assembly to be created. The ones elected wanted to unite with Germany to challenge Russia.
But revolutionary leaders don’t lead revolutions because they were selected by a divine being, they lead because their country is in dire need of change. We see this unrelenting ambition all throughout Napoleon’s life. Taking over European countries like collecting medals and basically crowning himself Emperor of France. “In 1804, Napoleon climbed the ultimate political rung by prevailing on Pope Pius VII to coronate him the Emperor of France”. Whatever he wanted he took without thinking twice.
King George III says “They say the price of my war’s not a price that they’re willing to pay”, saying that the British parliament were no longer going to fund the war. King George III was “now fighting with France and with Spain” so he had no choice but to give up America. The king goes on the ask “What comes next? You’ve been freed. Do you know how hard it is to lead?”, telling them that it’s hard governing on your own and “When your people say they hate you don’t come crawling back to me.”, the king is just letting America know they can’t rejoin the empire when things go
There were two sides, the Parliament and the King. One big problem that King Charles had is that he could not rule the country without the support of the Parliament, so if for example he needed more money, he would need the parliament’s approval but it was the right time for the parliament to get some ideas of their own, and he did not want that to happen, so King Charles did not do any meetings. Money, one of the three reasons of the civil war. First, King Charles continually kept running short on money, but the same thing happened when King James, Charles’ father was around. King James (He was king before king Charles) asked the parliament if he could collect directly the money, but Parliament kept on saying to him that he could not collect the money without its permission, so King James suspended Parliament and it did not meet for another ten years.
No one will ever come close to the achievements of this man in a single lifetime. They may be the leaders of the government that have the ability to expand their own country and win some of wars but not like what Napoleon did. He drive military expansion that change the world. He left a huge legacy, and change Europe forever. He maybe egocentric and ambitious but his good characteristics would be a best example of our better selves.
The 3rd Estate split away from the Estates General because their goals were being ignored. They wanted to form their own representative government. They went to the King’s Tennis Court and pledged an oath to stay until the King met their demand. They demanded an equal voice and a constitution that gave them power over their taxes, and property. The King was afraid of a National Assembly that only had 3rd estate members, so he forced the 1st and 2nd estate members to join the National Assembly.
Julius Caesar is known as the founder of the Roman Empire, Charles the Great as a great Emperor of the Middle Ages and there are a great number of other famous names which changed our world. Napoleon Bonaparte is among them. He became the hero of the French Revolution, a person who was excepted to change the image of France providing liberation and equality for its citizens. Thus, having plunge France into a chain of wars, Napoleon turned into the tyrant, which contradicted to the ideas of revolution. However, he still dreaded of equality and prosperity of France, trying to protect it and guarantee its leading role in the world policy, in order to use its influence and spread the ideas of revolution.
Chapter 10 AFTER RUNNYMEDE When the Magna Carta was sealed, that was not the end of the story. England was still in a civil war because the barons and John were still at odds. This war was not hot and furious, the Charter had provided a framework for peace, but one could not say there was peace in the realm. Also, the French were on the march, and they were in the process of invading England. William Marshal was at John’s side, prepared to stand in defense of the king and the realm against the French.
But this doesn’t mean he didn’t do anything to change the world, one of the things he did to change the world was that he helped in moving the British out of India. Many Franco-Indian alliances were formed between France and Indian armies between the 18th century to the reign of Napoleon. Following the huge alliances of Dupleix, an alliance was created by Louis XVI's France during the late 18th century in an attempt to move or kick Great Britain from the Indian subcontinent. After that, numerous proposals of alliances were created or formed by Typo Sultan, leading to the destroyance of a French fleet of volunteers to help him, and even creating an effort by Napoleon to make an agreement with India, throughout the 1798 Campaign of Egypt. In the late 17th century François Bernier (1625–1688), a great and famous French physician and traveler, became announced for 12 full years the personal physician of the great Mughal emperor Aurangzeb.
The papacy tried its best efforts to end the war. Jacques Fournier became the Pope in 1334 and took the name, Benedict XII. At the start of the war in 1337, he attempted considerable efforts to prevent the outbreak of hostilities, however he did not succeed. In 1378 Pope Urban VI was elected the Pope by the College of Cardinals. The Cardinals regretted their choice and selected Pierre Roger, who was elected the Pope in 1342 as Clement VI.
