Doc. #1 Description: The Dutch city of Ghent in nearly its entirety revolted against the taxes which were forced upon them. Analysis: Because “His Majesty” King Philip of Spain refused to settle on soldiers rather than money and threatened the Dutch, a tax revolt broke out. If Philip had settled for men for the army (which the money was going toward) then there would have been fewer problems and tensions between him and the Dutch Doc. #4 Description: A Dutch prince stands against the Spanish cruelty with a declaration directed toward his subjects.
King Henry VIII is notorious for marrying six times and beheading two of his wives, Catherine and Anne Boleyn. He also repeatedly petitioned Pope Clement VII for a divorce, which he was continuously denied. He pushed through the British Parliament acts designed to reduce the influence of the pope’s representatives in England. King Henry’s defiant attitude caused him to believe he was better than everyone else. His arrogant actions made him infamous around the world.
Then both of them were reconciled by the pope, and Thomas Becket returned. After his return Becket infuriated King Henry when he excommunicated the bishops that supported the King during Thomas Becket’s exile. King Henry who is known for his bad temper of course went on a rampage. King Henry’s rage got so out of hand that he rode all the way from Westminster to Canterbury and killed his former friend Thomas Becket in front of the main altar of the Cathedral after refusing to relent. These historical events relate back to the story because it tells of the events that happened in actual history.
In view of this, Henry VIII was so determined to get his way that “he started a church of his own. He got his divorce and stayed on the throne” (Hung). In addition to the fall of Queen Catherine, others were punished for dishonoring the king’s commands. This included, the king’s Minister, Cardinal Wolsey, who “failed to get the divorce from Rome” (David 420 ). Evidently, Henry VIII was willing to do anything it took to get rid of people who dissatisfied him.
This also indicates that the citizens desired to change badly and that’s why they took this action and took an oath that they will make a new constitution. The third estate declared themselves as the national assembly. In conclusion, Louis XVI was the main cause of the French Revolution because all the causes link together for example, he didn’t lead the country properly this means that he didn’t help his people and was not definitely giving taxes out fairly because he put soo much taxes on the poor peasants and this caused the peasants to rebel against Louis by breaking into the Bastille and stealing everything, also demanding food from Louis because they did not have the money to by food for
The drastic drop in population, created a dramatically increase in wages, a fall in food supplies, change in medicine, and an undetermined mindset of religion. As food prices began to drop, and the need for food supplies decreased, landowners where finding it more and more difficult to make ends meets. These effects led to an end in the once great manorial system of Europe, and adapted peasants from farmers to the urban life. Doctors treating the disease soon became infected, and killed off most physicians treating this disease. This caused an awakening in the medical field, as physicians where viewed as a failure.
In his address, Washington condemns the formation of political parties, claiming that all factions of this manner are destructive and that they are made of nothing but “cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men [intending to] thwart the Power of the People” and take control of the government for themselves. The first political parties were formed shortly after Washington’s departure from office, which he had very specifically warned the people of America not to do. There were the Federalists (those who favored a strong central government) and Anti-Federalists (those who opposed it). These two groups feuded over the Constitution until one simply ceased to exist. This occurred frequently as more and more political parties formed, until the views of the American people were divided rather than united.
The Catholic Church then replied by criticising Hitler in a papal message “With Burning Concern”. Furthermore, another person who opposed Hitler was Von Galen, who ran a successful campaign about euthanasia of physically and mentally handicapped children as a means of infuriating the Nazis. The Nazis had to abandon their policy about it. This proved that Hitler was not in full control of Germany because the people were against him and they didn’t hide their anger and
Creon has disrupted the feeling of trust by misplacing fear in the hearts of the sentry because he wanted his edict to be all-powerful. Furthermore, in addition to turning compatriots onto allies, power also creates an unquenchable lust for itself and drives the owner mad with paranoia, trying to protect their power. When he was threatened by the daughter of the previous ruler to be dethroned, he immediately strives to install a new law, he knew she could not abide so that he would be left without competition. The fabricated mandate by Creon was, “...Polyneices… is to have no burial…”( scene I lines 43-44). When he made
The American Revolution started because of the tension with the british government and the American colonies. The Americans were under the rules of Britain. The Americans were furious by how they were being treated and controlled by the British. The English were putting high taxes on the Americans and they got mad because they had no say in the matter. Then they had no representation of saying whatever they wanted and they couldn’t speak their mind because they weren’t allowed, however they could start a rebellion to speak to the British and make their voices be heard.
Many of the serfs died, so the remaining ones demanded higher wages. More effects of the plague were, that the lack of customers started to drive down the prices of items in stores, this ended the crusades because all the soldiers had died. It weakened the church’s power because people started to question their faith, and everyone blamed the jews for it. Some long term effects were that wages increased, for there was a shortage in labor and land became more
They ruled that as a slave Scott was not recognized in the constitution as a citizen thus was not allowed freedoms. But not only that but the Missouri compromise was “unconstitutional” this choice, which Buchanan did support (going against his campaign) only a little. But the effect that follows was swift, quick, and raw. As soon as the choice was made to allow white suppression, Abolitionists rose to the sky like the flames of a wildfire. They claimed the Supreme Court was acting in a “holy war”, thus vowing to disobey it.
since the revolution had many enemies and few friends peasants were forced to fight and this displeased them. before the revolution the catholic church had a lot of say in the government and a lot of power afterwards some of their power was revoked making it possible to have other religions in france which pissed off the catholic church. with the revolution brought equal rights to every one if that were lost there would be no point in the committee of public safety and it would just be disbanded. to protect the revolution would definitely come before protecting the people. robespierre was basically a dictator after an amount of time and was not thoroughly protecting the people 's rights so he got his head cut off the committee of public safety’s main goal was to protect the revolution even if effected both sides
As stated earlier, after promoting Thomas Becket from manager of public relations to chancellor, King Henry expected him to do anything he told him to do. Thomas Becket did not feel that some of the changes of limiting the clergy were in accordance with his beliefs, so he argued and refused to sign the papers. Eventually, this became so much of a problem that Thomas Becket had to leave England and go to France, with King Henry’s greatest rival, for six years. "The King continued doggedly in his pursuit of control over his clerics, to the point where his religious policy became detrimental to his subjects. By 1170, the Pope was considering excommunicating all of Britain.
He collected taxes without the consent of the estates general in order establish many things, fund a series of wars, build a bigger and stronger military and to build his palace, the Palace of Versailles, when it was built he insisted that the nobles spend more time there (Doc 2). This eventually led the nobles into debt because they spent most of their time and money at the Palace of Versailles. The nobles being in debt meant that they lost status and power, which ultimately fed the basis for the French Revolution. Document 3 states; “The aftermath of the revocation was disastrous for France. Many of those who abjured [gave up] their Protestant religion repented of their weakness.”(Doc 3) This demonstrates that the removal of the Edict of Nantes drove people insane because it granted the people France substantial rights, however when the rights were removed by Louis XIV people became infuriated, which is another reason to why the French Revolution occurred.
