Henry’s lack of political skill played a huge part in the feud between York and Somerset, which started in 1950 when Rouen and Normandy were lost to the French. This feud started because York blamed Somerset for the loss of Normandy. Which in 1453, he made clear by putting Somerset on trial for treason in France. Henry failed to resolve the feud between the two nobles because his personality wasn’t strong enough. This eventually lost him the support of York, after countless amounts of times that York attempted to prove his loyalty, which played a big part in his downfall because York was a very important noble.
Once the barons rebelled the barons and John fought little battles taking over each others castles and such, but did not have one big war because both sides were afraid of losing with the other as their armies were equally as strong at the time but,eventually the barons won because John died of dysentery after drinking too much booze and eating too many peaches.

Elizabeth’s image was carefully cultivated; she wore an uncompromising public mask for the entirety of her reign. As a person she has been described as aloof, enigmatic, extravagant and intelligent. As a woman she had to surmount assumptions that her sex would lead her to be an inferior monarch, as well as restore the faith in the monarchy that had been dismantled by Mary’s tyrannical rule. She gained valuable lessons from Mary’s reign and used her femininity to gain obedience rather than an axe! The subordination of her own personal feelings and desires to meet the needs of her country showed a determination and dedication that inspired loyalty from her government and her subjects (Levine 1969, p.1-15).

However that title would be forcefully take by England under the rule of Queen Elizabeth (Waller 200). The defeat of the Spanish Armada is one of the most famous events in English history (Ruggeri). It was arguably Queen Elizabeth's finest hour. England was a small country, with little wealth, few friends, and many enemies (Ruggeri). If Queen Elizabeth ever felt nervous about challenging the greatest power in the known world, she never showed it, and appeared to believe completely in the devotion and loyalty of her people (Jokinen).
Also the state of the country during World War One left a lot to be desired and created a lot of dissatisfaction amongst the Russian people. Tsar Nicholas II was responsible for the fall of the Romanov dynasty, but to a notable extent, as there were other factors more significant to account for the collapse of the Romanovs. It’s reasonable if one states that Nicholas II was responsible for stardom’s collapse. Many criticized the Tsar as a Monarch whose capacity for hard work and commitment wasn’t matched by outstanding intelligence, and had no clear vision for Russia’s future. Nicholas was not suited to his role as Tsar, and would rather spend his time with his family.
The Byzantine Empire, much like the Roman Empire, faced a formidable array of external enemies. However, it was largely internal decay which destroyed both empires. The political and economic stability of the empire by 1000 A.D. led to two lines of development which combined to trigger a pair of interlocking feedback cycles that, in turn, eventually wrecked the empire. First of all, there was the free peasantry upon which the government depended for taxes and recruits. When the empire had been under constant attack, land had been a poor investment.
