This meant that these areas, which were traditionally either pro-Lancastrian or prone to rebellion, were more controlled during Edward IV’s reign, which helped to restore royal authority. Moreover, at the Battle of Barnet in 1471 Warwick was killed. Warwick was an overmighty subject meaning that, while Edward did create overmighty subjects, he did remove them as a threat. The death of Warwick restored authority to the crown as it meant that the nobility were less powerful and that Edward IV was more powerful. Furthermore, the deaths of both Edward of Westminster, at the Battle of Tewkesbury in 1471, and Henry VI a few weeks later meant that there were fewer Lancastrian
Although Henryâ€™s wife, Catherine of Aragon did in fact give birth to some children between the years 1509 to 1514 none lived past the age of one. Although Henry did eventually get his Heir to crown it didnâ€™t happen tillâ€™ Edward VI in 1537. This means that Henryâ€™s biggest and most important aim was technically a failure during the early years of his reign. Another important goal that Henry VIII wanted to achieve in the early years of his Reign was to bring Honour and Glory to England and for him to be known as a true English warrior to the rest of Europe. Henry did somewhat achieve this goal with his wars with France and Scotland.
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.
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. There are long term causes that could have had an impact on war in 1455. We could blame the shift in power towards the nobility. Certainly in the early 14th century with rulers such as Edward II (who was murdered by nobles), this became prevalent. His successor Edward III managed to stabilize this relationship, by creating crusades in France, focusing their energies into conquests which began the 100 years wby w05anettletonar.
During Napoleon's time, he was a considered an Enlightened leader who led the French towards progression, prior to failing later in his career. Napoleon, was not the epitome of the ultimate dictator nor necessarily the greatest Enlightenment advocate for his people, but he did pursue both concepts that brought France to glory. POLITICAL/MILITARY: Napoleon Bonaparte continued being promoted until he seized the opportunity to control France. Bonaparte, used the French Revolution and French nationalism to unite the country. He did this by supporting the French Revolution and raised French nationalism with his bold moves to ruin Britain, France's greatest enemy.
From there they would march to break a long siege by an army of Prince Louis at the city of Lincoln. After six hours of fighting William Marshall’s army siege victorious, on September 11, 1217, Marshal negotiated the Treaty of Lambeth that ended the war The French prince surrendered his castles, released his partisans from their oaths to him, and exhorted all his allies to lay down their arms, the Treaty of Lambeth put an end to Louis's pretended right to the kingship. William Marshal had ensured the restoration of peace and order in England, if William had lost the battle in Lincoln, a French king would have sat on an English throne, which demonstrates the importance of the battle in Lincoln in English history and one of the greatest achievements
A pro-Burgundian clergyman and English adviser named Pierre Cauchon later arranged her conviction on their behalf. Joan of Arc was born on January 6th of the year 1412, to parents Jacques and Isabelle d'Arc in Domremy, eastern France. Around the age of 12, Joan had visions of Saints Catherine and Margaret and St Michael the Archangel. Michael had been chosen as one of the patron saints of the French Royal army, long having been the parton of Mont-St-Michel, which held out against repeated English assaults. Duke Charles was less successful, gradually losing the allegiance of almost all important cities north of the Loire Rivier.
After subsequently defeating the English again at the Battle of Patay, Joan brought Charles to Reims, where he was officially crowned King Charles VII on July 17. On the way from Reims, Joan and the Duke of Alencon suggested that the French attempt to take English-controlled Paris. But after a promising first day of fighting, Charles called off the assault on Paris; he was running low on funds. He recalled the army south and disbanded much of it. Charles then named Joan and her family to French nobility, in thanks for Joan's services to

After the French Revolution though, the republic slowly began shifting to a totalitarian regime, first under the Committee of Public Safety and then completely under Napoleon Bonaparte .The facts show that the American Revolution was more successful in establishing a stable and long-lasting republican government that started a precedent for Europe, while the French Revolution’s republic failed to last, being turned into a totalitarian regime. Events leading up to the American and French Revolutions occurred for a similar reason: unfair representation. The people in the American colonies became progressively upset with Britain and its Parliament when they refused the colonists’ representation, while still imposing many different taxes on the colonists. Upset over this tax on one of their most valued imports, the colonists dumped all the tea into the Boston Harbor during the Boston Tea Party. This showed that the colonists were willing, and able, to live without depending on the British government.
