How far was the outbreak of civil war in 1455 a direct result of Henry’s inadequacies as king? In order to assess the cause of civil war, we must understand it’s meaning. Civil war is defined as a war between factions or regions of the same country. In this particular by w05anettletoncase, it was a battle between the ‘Yorkists’, who were Loyal to Richard Duke of York, and the ‘Lancastrians’, who were Loyal to the King. There were many factors that aided the outbreak in 1455, however I believe that these factors were all results of Henry’s inadequacies as king, or could have been prevented if Henry was a more suitable ruler.

Donald Sinclair 11/27/09 English 3° Cause and Effect: Quasi War The Quasi War was an undeclared naval war between France and the US that had many causes and effects. The main cause of the war was the signing of the Jay Treaty between the United States and Britain in 1794. Although it was a commercial agreement, France viewed it as a violation of 1778 Treaty of Alliance with the American colonists and as favoritism towards Britain (militaryhistory.about.com). France's response to this was to seize American ships trading with Britain, and in 1796, France refused to accept the new US minister in Paris. Another cause of the Quasi War was the fact that the French had captured over 300 United State ships.
An analysis of Britain’s imperial policies during the time period from 1763 to 1776 reveals that British policies regarding issues like taxation and political representation were directly responsible for intensifying colonial resistance to British rule and for strengthening the colonials’ commitment to republican values. Great Britain’s 1763 victory over France in the Seven Years War made it the dominate power in North America, but the challenges associated with managing such a vast Empire required British policymakers to make tough decisions in the years following the war. The Proclamation of 1763 created an incredible amount of anger not only in the colonies, but also with the Native Americans. Many of the actions that resulted from the Proclamation were simply due to the lack of cooperation between the British, colonists and Native Americans. Britain had taken what was rightfully won by the colonies, and this fueled the colonists desire for the American Revolution.
This sparked a seven-year war with the French, the French tried to push British colonist out of America. In order to defend the colonist in America, the number of troops increased in colonies, these troops were sent on the expense of Britain. Even though during this time the colonies were very wealthy, British taxpayers were enduring the total expense for protection. The cost of the seven-year war was nearly 150 million pounds. In this essay I will be explaining the view of the Whigs, and also of the Troy’s (the Loyalist) of the debt and how this caused many of British colonist to rebel against their own Crown in pursuit of their independence.
These acts were sometimes reversed as it was in this case, he was reinstated as Earl of Surrey in 1489 to help put down an uprising in Northumberland. This gave Henry ultimate power over his dangerously powerful nobles, meaning he could use them to his advantage when he needed to, as well as being able to suppress them. However, Henry VII was also unsuccessful in strengthening his authority as King as he continued to be increasingly paranoid about threats from foreign powers and pretenders. His weak hold on foreign policy in Europe meant that in 1491 France began to aid the imposture of Perkin Warbeck, a young man pretending to be Edward, Earl of Warwick, an heir to the English Throne with a stronger claim than the King himself. ...read more.
How far were Louis XVI's problems of his own making? The problems Louis XVI faced during his reign were partially due to his lack of leadership ability, his poor decisions and unwise actions. He created these problems by giving too much power to his nobles and hardly utilizing his power in his Divine Right. However, he did inherit an archaic system which was on the verge of collapse in Europe in general and the government of France had many inbuilt weaknesses already. He was faced with a tidal wave of new, enlightened ideas that was also fueled by France's involvement in the American war of independence.
From 1754 through 1763, a world war was experienced, that brought many casualties. French and Spain had certain views on their trade empire in the colonies, and Great Britain had different views. This caused chaos and countries formed alliances with Great Britain, Prussia and the Iroquois on one side, and France, Russia, and the Spanish Empire on the other. The Treaty of Paris ended this war, and paved the way for many political, economical, and ideological alterations, such as an increase in British Empire, debt-ridden colonists and England, and bitter feelings of hatred. These alterations created new and worsened relations between the British and the colonists that would only continue to get worse.
Joan of Arc: La Pucelle In the early 1400s, a civil war became present between two factions of the French Royal family, allowing the English to re-invade France. One side, the Orleanist or Armagnac faction, was led by Count Bernard VII of Armagnac and Duke Charles of Orleans. The rivals, who were known as the Burgundians, were led by Duke John-the-Fearless of Burgundy. His son, Philip-the-Good, led forces that later would capture Joan of Arc and hand her over to the English. A pro-Burgundian clergyman and English adviser named Pierre Cauchon later arranged her conviction on their behalf.
She said these voices commanded her to aid the Dauphin, Charles, in his fight against England and Burgundy, and to see him crowned as the King of France at Reims. Reims was the traditional location where French kings were crowned. But because Reims was in English hands, Charles had not been able to hold a coronation ceremony yet, though his
