The Knight ran into an old woman who told him the answer to the question and they rode to see the Queen. The Knight told the Queen that, “A women wants the self-same sovereignty over her husband as over her lover, and master him; he must not be above her.” (214-216). It is explaining in this quote that the men must not be more powerful than their women, that women are in control of their men. This relates to how the Queen showed she had more power and control when she said the Knight could live, which meant the King had no control over the punishment.
The English Queen Elizabeth’s reign was full of challenges. Not only did she have to unify a religiously divided kingdom, but she also had to protect herself from the assassination attempts encouraged by the Pope. The Spanish Armada undertook such an attempt in 1588. She recruited an army full of people against her because she was a woman, she was illegitimate, she was protestant and she was not married. However, she needed them to protect her and her protestant realm.
Modthryth, in spite of her isolation, is already shown to be fierce and capable of imparting physical harm on men. Grendel’s mother also seems to weave the strings of his actions as an antagonist. Wealhtheow, the Queen of Danes, is wise and bears the capacity to impact peace among the warriors. In her first appearance in Beowulf, Wealhtheow appears “Adorned in her gold, she graciously handed the cup first to Hrothgar, their homeland 's guardian, urging him to drink deep and enjoy it because he was dear to them” (Beowulf 614-618).
When Beddor says “Alyss’ imagination could be used for “good and ill,” he is leaving the reader feeling unsure if Alyss will use her imagination to its full potential. The queen is foreshadowing Alyss’ imagination to Redds. Alyss’ demanding self leads her to trouble and sadness: “I am princess Alyss Heart. The queen is my mother and-” Your-? Well, well.”

Lady Macbeth says to Macbeth “Thou wouldst be great/ Art not without ambition.” Lady Macbeth basically was saying that if Macbeth doesn’t take control she will. Wuthering Heights also show a lot of unbalanceness in the relationships. It also shows some examples of women wanting sovereignty over men.
Lady Macbeth has high ambition for her spouse. She comprehends that Macbeth has a desire for the throne. Be that as it may, she expects that her spouse would experience difficulty when endeavoring to murder Duncan and want the throne on the grounds that she sees Macbeth as "full o' the milk of human kindness". Since Lady Macbeth realizes that her spouse would never have the capacity to perform such an errand, she chooses to control the of the killing of Duncan. She requests that "direst brutality" debase her.
For example when Lady Macbeth says: “ Glamis thou art, and Cawdor, and shalt be what art promised…” (1.5.15-16). Through this quote this shows how ambitious and confident she is about the fact that her husband will become king. She will make sure that this will happen. This quote shows how evil she is, even before confirming with Macbeth she is already saying that he will be king and no one will stop that from happening.
Testing a man’s manliness during this time era is an assured way to receive any wish, so that is what Lady Macbeth did so precisely. In fact, Wayne C. Booth notes in Shakespeare for Students, “She twits him for cowardice, plays upon the word “man,” making it seem that he becomes more a man by doing the manly deed.” It is evident that Lady Macbeth already realizes how to maintain control over her husband, so what would the purpose of being unsexed be? She deliberately uses her charm and questioning of Macbeth’s manhood to develop his contrasting feelings into what Lady Macbeth believes. If pursuing additional power is what Lady Macbeth desires, no explanation will ever make sense because she possesses a myriad of competence that directs Macbeth straight toward the path of her ambitions for him to become King of
She became an image known for her ambitious nature. Her thirst for power and disregard for life was shocking to the audience, and her husband as well. The moment she learns of the prophecies, she decides to stand behind Macbeth and see him to the throne. She is immediately set on her quest for more power. As it reads “Glamis thou art, and Cawdor; and shalt be/

During the Tudor dynasty a diverse range of conflicts and rebellions occurred. After Henry VIII breached with Rome in 1533 the threat of religion increased leading to multiple revolts. This resulted Elizabeth, the last monarch of the Tudors, left to overcome various problems which threatened the Queen such as; the religious issues caused by the Spanish Armada linking with the rebellions she had to also overcome, the Northern Rebellion, and finally foreign policy, threatened by the Anglo Spanish relations causing great threats for the Virgin Queen. However, Elizabeth did overcome religious threats by the end of her reign, despite the unstable country she was left in by her rebellious sister Mary, her father Henry VIII and grandfather Henry VII,
Another reason Elizabeth never married was the issue of succession and religion. The specific focus was on her producing an heir to the throne, and also the religion of the male heir. The constant pressure on Elizabeth to marry was rooted in the national obession over the issue of succession. This was significant in a country that was divided by Catholicism and Protestantism.
Even though Patrick Henry and some colonists are willing to go to war to gain independence, violence will only lead to more violence. What differs men from animals is their intelligence and consciousness. Colonists should not act like wild animals by going to war with the British ; instead, an agreement should be made with the British crown first. American Patriots should give the example of a true Christian, and not solve American problems with violence. Above all, God taught his children, through Jesus, to love one another like we love ourselves, not hate each
Lady Macbeth even views her husband’s weaknesses as leverage to harass him into killing Duncan. This can be seen when, at one stage, Macbeth repels the idea of killing a good king and believes that the assassination should not be done, his wife demands him to kill by saying abusive words. She questions if Macbeth loves her, she questions Macbeth’s masculinity and she criticizes Macbeth’s aspiration to be king. These three brutal statements hurt Macbeth. Since Macbeth wants to prove his manhood, his love for
