Between 1547 and 1558 England was almost torn apart by religious revolution. Assess the validity of this claim. (45 marks) A religious revolution is the complete change and reform of religious organisation. This is something that arguably occurred in England between 1547 and 1558, during which time there were two monarchs – Edward VI and Mary I, with opposing religious beliefs. During Tudor England, religious identity was extremely important, and therefore religious ‘revolution’ was obviously going to affect the people and the country significantly.

Vazira Narzullaeva Ms Christina AP US History 9 November 2012 DBQ Essay The effects of French and Indian War on England and its colonies During the mid-seventeenth century, the three most powerful empires, Britain, France, and Spain, were fighting over land in North America. The French and Indian war was a step which started the American Revolution. At the end of French and Indian war, Britain was the winner. The result led to geographical changes where most of the east and north of North America was claimed by the British (Doc. A).
To what extent can the pilgrimage of grace, 1536 be considered a serious threat to the Tudor Monarchy? The pilgrimage of grace was the largest revolt in England in the reign of Henry VIII and of the Tudor dynasty. It was based in Yorkshire made up of nobles and commoners and differed from the Lincolnshire rising as it was well led by a one eyed lawyer called Robert Aske. Aske was a competent organiser and kept the uprising standardised as he didn’t want to scare off nobles from joining the rebellion. The pilgrimage of grace was orchestrated to help stop the attacks against the Church in England and the monasteries.
The Huns organized one of the largest invasions of the time composed of perhaps as many as half a million men. The Huns spread across Gaul and wreaked collateral damage on the great cities of Europe. The aftershock caused the Romans to quickly unite with the Visigoths, enemies of the Huns, to confront the Huns. The Huns were surprisingly halted and forced to retreat a hundred miles. The enemy pursued them and once again attacked.
The Revolutionary War The Revolutionary War would lay down the foundation of a new free nation that would lead the world for many years to come. This war would be forced by a King that was 3000 miles away from American soil. There are many causes that led up to the start of the war. King George had forced this upon himself with all of his taxes and forcefulness against the colonies. There were many battles fought and won by both sides on many different scales.
How far do sources T, U and V suggest that the Pilgrimage of Grace was a serious threat to Henry VIII? Sources U and V suggest that the Pilgrimage of Grace was a serious threat to the King while source T does not. The content of sources U and V strongly suggests that the Pilgrimage of Grace was a real threat to the King. For example, source U mentions that “all the nobility of the duchy of York have risen”. This statement shows that the Pilgrimage of Grace consisted of very diverse social groups, such as, the nobility, gentry and commoners.
However, the localised aims of the rebellions and significant absence of gentry always meant that London was likely to remain largely unaffected. Both Sources 1 and 4 suggest that the 1549 rebellions were a serious threat to the Tudor regime due to their scale. This can be seen in Source 1 as it states “rebels [were] said to number hundreds or thousands” corresponding with Source 4’s belief that the rebellions were “mass uprisings”. Both suggest that the rebellions gained popular support in numbers that would threaten the government. Evidence suggests that 3,000 rebels were killed by the Earl of Warwick at Dussindale, suggesting Kett’s Rebellion involved a significant force.
Nicholas II ruled from 1894 until his abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw Imperial Russia go from being one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. Critics nicknamed him Bloody Nicholas because of the Khodynka Tragedy, Bloody Sunday, the anti-Semitic pogroms, his execution of political opponents, and his pursuit of military campaigns on a hitherto unprecedented scale. | 2.
