Sir Edmund Andros undermined and suppressed the town governments of the Dominion of New England, including the Massachusetts assembly. He decreased the authority of the Massachusetts assembly. C is correct, because the merchants, ministers, and militias of Boston arrested Sir Edmund Andros and his aides to remove him from power once word of the Glorious Revolution reached them. The colonists figured that if the people of England could remove a hated leader then they could remove their hated governor. Sir Edmund Andros was deposed as a result of the Glorious Revolution, but shortly after the new monarchs installed new royal governors in an attempt to reassert royal authority.
The Sengoku period saw many warlords accumulate power one moment and get absorbed into another daimyo the next. This constant handing of power from one power-hungry entity to another provided a large obstacle for unification. None of these daimyos gained enough power or lasted long enough to unify Japan. The regional rising of power exhibited in the Hojo family and other daimyos continued to plague Japan until it was unified with the help of three great unifiers. Oda Nobunaga, one of the great unifiers, had a lowly start similar to Soun Hojo.
Akechi Mitsuhide and Hashiba Hideyoshi wanted to give him reinforcements, but Nobunaga refused. Therefore, those two generals were forced into concentrating on laying siege to the Mōri and Ukita castles rather than helping Yukimori. By 1563, Môri Motonari had penetrated the borders of Izumo and was besieging the strategically vital Shiraga Castle. Yukimori was dispatched in relief with 200 horsemen and while he failed to lift the siege, he did distinguish himself for bravery. Further displays of his martial abilities would come in 1565, when the Môri surrounded Gassan-Toda, the Amako's headquarters.
In the battle of Mikatagahara, he was allying with Oda Nobunaga which helped him during that battle. The Sengoku Jidai period started in 1467 and ended in 1567 and was ended because he created an unopposed shogunate. Tokugawa Ieyasu was important because he was very patient, made alliances, and ended the Sengoku
There is no clear narrative from either of the seconds, Van Ness said that Hamilton fired first at Burr, Pendelton said that Hamilton being hit by Burr caused him to pull his trigger as an involuntary reaction (Ellis, 28-29). Both seconds gave an account which would make their mentor look better, but the public ignored any attempts to humanize Burr and instead dubbed Hamilton the martyr. Chapter Four of Founding Brothers detailed the events surrounding President George Washington’s Farewell Address, published in newspapers in 1796 (Ellis, 121). Washington was reluctant to take the position of president when he was asked in 1789, as was evidenced by the fact that he had already retired in 1783 from the military (Ellis, 134). He thought about voluntarily giving up the presidency in 1792, but with advice from his cabinet officers, he agreed to a second term (Ellis, 149).
The Anti-Annexation Struggle. 1. Why was the Bayonet Constitution so detrimental to the Kingdom and the lāhui (nation)? The Bayonet Constitution was so detrimental because it stripped the King, Kalakaua, of his executive powers. All his decisions required the consent of the cabinet and he could no longer appoint the House of Nobles and was prevented from dismissing it.
The king is uncivilized because of his arbitrary and barbaric justice system and his lack of government in his kingdom. The king demonstrates his cruelness by having an unfair justice system because it does not truly tell whether the accused is guilty or innocent and it is used more for entertainment than for justice. For Example, the justice system is used to entertain the people and the king. On page 269 the narrator explains “The institution was a very popular one. When the people gathered together on one of the great trial days, they never knew whether they were to witness a bloody slaughter or a hilarious wedding.” This quote exhibits how the justice system is used for entertainment because of the joy and sorrow a person gets from coming to the arena to watch a man choose his fate.
“To guard against external influence, they also worked to close off Japanese society from Westernizing influences, particularly Christianity. When the Tokugawa shogunate grew increasingly weak by the mid-19th century, two powerful clans joined forces in early 1868 to seize power as part of an “imperial restoration” named for Emperor Meiji.” This restoration was the beginning of the end of feudalism, or the way of structuring society around relationships derived from the holding of land in exchange for service or labour, in Japan. The Tokugawa regime acted to exclude missionaries because of suspicion of foreign intervention and colonialism. Eventually, they issued a complete ban on Christianity in Japan. Near the beginning, there were an estimated 300,000 Christians in Japan.
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
In Shakespeare’s play, King Henry IV Part 1, Hotspur’s speech to King Henry, in attempt to explain why he did not free prisoners when ordered to do so by the courtier, employs that he is an impetuous leader that is incapable of consistently obtaining respect. Hotspur says that the courtier confronted him after the battle, and that the man was, “neat, and trimly dressed, / Fresh as a bridegroom” (I.3.32-33). The man is composed and feminine, which prominently disgusts Hotspur. His repugnance of “neat” is looked down upon by King Henry, and is not respected by those Hotspur entails respect from. Hotspur is a hasty soldier that evidently contains no tolerance for weakness, fear, or even the slight details of courtly behavior.
