The Granada seemed to be an easy target for Ferdinand and Isabella to conquer so in return they’ll gain power and glory. The Conquest of Granada gave Ferdinand and Isabella what they needed the most to establish themselves as great ruler, they gained power, fame and glory. It was a smart move as now barons of Castile were occupied and thinking about
But this would not stop them from laying the foundation that would lead to a great rise in power. Within a decade Ferdinand and Isabella had secured their rule and embarked on an exhausting campaign to gain more power. While gaining power from overtaking different lands they were extremely respectful for each kingdom’s traditional political system. The places that were conquered were run by monarchy which had many benefits. A new benefit that came from this was a more effective collection of royal taxes.
Her father was very important to her, and she held a great deal of respect for him. The combination of these aspects of her environment would have affected her beliefs as well as her mental and behavioural traits. Hedda seems to have had quite a close relationship with her father, she looked up to him and is very proud of her association to him. This pride in her father would have been reinforced throughout her life as he was a very respectable member of society. This positive reinforcement of her father could have caused the development of the strong and masculine elements of her personality.

Mary’s marriage to Philip of Spain obviously helped to cement this even if the marriage itself was not a success. England and Spain were also still bonded by Philip of Spain’s marriage alliance to Mary and had continued to stay on friendly terms after Mary’s death. The 1554 marriage to Mary was political. By this marriage, Philip became,”jure uxoris” King of England and Philip was keen to keep his power during Elizabeth’s reign. This meant that any conflict between the two countries was unlikely as politically, both monarchs were keen to stay allies.
In medieval society, the Christian Church, or more specifically, the Roman Catholic Church dominated all aspects of medieval life in Europe. Through various methods, the Church was able to spread its religious teachings to people all throughout Europe. Because the Church prophesized that practicing their “true religion” was the only way to save one’s soul, the Church was easily able to control a great many people. The Church was so powerful that even the rulers of various states in Europe followed under its lead. It is apparent that these rulers, similar to the remaining populace regarded the Church as their superior, and did so with good reason- this religious institution was both very wealthy and omnipotent, making it a force to be reckoned with.

By the eleventh century, England was hardly a united country. Fragmented into several kingdoms, England had been conquered, raided and pillaged and saw an incredible turnover in leadership. However, the eleventh century would mark the lasting formation of what would become England’s monarchy. In his book The Godwins, Frank Barlow examines what could be known as England’s most prestigious family, and their importance to the English monarchy. Barlow not only tells about the nature of monarchy in Anglo-Saxon England, but also assesses the strengths and weaknesses of the institution under each respected ruler.
I would like to echo what has already been said and compliment our beautiful bride. I must say that Gabby (Brother’s wife) looks terrific today. Diego is one very lucky man. Surprisingly, Diego has scrubbed up quite well himself, even if he did copy my outfit… I would also like to give a special mention to the two bridesmaids who helped Gabby be here today. I would imagine Gabby needed some help today knowing that today is her big day.
