How significant was William’s military prowess to his claim to the throne of England? William the Conqueror had a very weak claim to the throne – if you really think about it – and his ultimate claim of the throne was down to quite a few reasons. For example, the weaknesses in the claims of others also trying to gain the throne as well as Harold’s oath in 1064; however the most significant reason was his military prowess. William’s military prowess and the new type of warfare he demonstrated to Anglo-Saxon England was one of the most significant reasons he succeeded in claiming the English throne. He was a very experienced and ruthless military commander, ruler and administrator who had unified Normandy and inspired fear and respect outside of his duty.
The Mongolians had an excellent military composed of elite horsemen and archers. These supreme soldiers coupled with brilliant strategy made for an undefeatable army that led to build the largest empire the world has known. The Mongolian Calvary often used sneaky and underhanded methods to accomplish their goals; nonetheless it worked (Doc 1). Methods such as these saved many lives and strengthened the military tactics of the Mongolians.
In weekly reading, The Common People Are Being Robbed, Mary indicated that “The Puritans fleeing from oppression became oppressors”, and so did the farmers. They just need money, land, and transportation but didn’t want to defy the government. As the reading shows, the progressive movement started with raising public voice about reforming by publicity the book like Upton
Without them the nobility would be faced with famine. Unfortunately for the barons, who needed workers, they decided to raise the wages that were paid before the plague to get workers on their farms and tend to them. The workers realizing that they were somewhat indispensible took advantage of the situation. They demanded extremely high
The romans had a really strong army, had they re own tactic and had their own way to train , these are the main reasons why the romans could obtain and controll such a vast empire. The roman empire covers parts of Asia, Europe and Africa. there were many other reasons such as they're roads and ways in which they battled, while being protected by man made (hadrians wall) and natural borders (The Rhine river). One of the main reasons why the romans were able to obtain and control such a vast empire is because of its army. The roman army was strong and had a odd way to train compared to other people (the barbarians).
For this, rural councils known as the Zemstvas were set up in 1864 which offered the serfs a representative government; but they were mostly dominated by the nobility and professionals and many of them resented their loss of power over the serfs. To tend to these demands, local government reforms were put in place which were largely made up of nobility and made to give former serf owners a sense of local authority to make up for their loss of control over the serfs. Further judicial reforms were also put in place to help peasants arrange property rights and contracts, even more so now as they were able to own their own land. The emancipation of the serfs and reduction of labour services contributed to the growth of a money-based economy which had been a long term goal for the Tsar. The second reason to why further reforms were introduced was to modernise Russia’s overall economy and industry in order to catch up with the already modernised Western countries.
This meant serfdom was already coming to its own natural end, and for Alexander II to support his nobles he had to emancipate the serfs so they could go start increasing their wealth and get out of debt. Serfdom was also holding Russia back, with the rest of Europe liberalising and making vast economic progress Russia’s economy was starting to look inferior and for them to advance as a nation they had to increase productivity of the serfs and the simple solution was to emancipate them. The serfs were inefficient and had a low productivity due to poor farming methods and constantly being oppressed by their nobles. This oppression and poor farming was caused by the extremely conservative rule which refused to modernise, had the Tsar modernised the farming techniques and stopped the
Their main focus was agriculture, but their main motivation was neither religion nor agriculture but to “dig, wash, and load gold.” (Doc. F) As a result, this lead to competition to see who can make more money. These Virginians spread out throughout the territory therefore; cities, churches and schools were more difficult to form. Therefore, servants and slaves were needed to tend the animals and land. Land became scarce, which in the future led to violence.
After losing their farms, farmers had to move west of the Appellation Mountains; the further west the farmers moved the less they were represented in the government. The farmers felt since they fought in combat that they needed to be represented on the issues that were important to them. Most of the time, the person representing the people was for other issuers that were not as important to the farmers. The farmers also felt as if their liberties were not being met. Since the farmers fought in the war the assumed that their liberties would be engaged better than they were.
In addition, the railroads used up space previously used for the cultivation of crops. 2. What reforms did they seek? Farmers called for two main reforms. The first was for the government to monitor and regulate how much they had to pay for the railroad service, thus inhibiting the railroad companies from setting unreasonable high prices.
