From the very beginning of her reign, Mary was aware of the necessity of producing an heir to ensure the restoration of Catholicism would be continued once she was gone. In order to produce an heir, she would need to find herself a husband. England had a long history of friendly relations with Spain (for example an alliance was forged by Henry VII and continued under Henry VIII), but the Privy Council though it to be unwise for Mary to marry Philip. They believed the marriage would be unpopular with those objecting Catholicism as it was suspected that England could become a pawn in Spanish ambitions to dominate Europe. On the contrary, the marriage would safeguard England as any heir Mary and Philip may have produced would have inherited the Netherlands and England.
Charles could provide that. Furthermore the marriage treaty itself was beneficial to England as it was drawn up by Gardiner who was suppicous of the marriage. There was a possibility of an English empire in Europe as their child would inherit the Netherlands and England. If England were attacked by France Spain would
Margaret of Burgundy was the sister of Henry’s Yorkist predecessors, Edward IV and Richard III, and as such she wished for a return of Yorkist rule to England. She supported the Simnel and Warbeck rebellions, going as far as to harbour Warbeck at Flanders. Rather than declare war on Burgundy, Henry imposed economic sanctions on Burgundy in 1493 wherein no trade would take place between England and Burgundy, which was economically damaging to both, but Henry needed to ensure his security. In 1496 the Magnus Intercursus was signed between the two countries, stating that, amongst other things, trade would resume between them (though this will tilted in Henry’s favour so much that the native Burgundians called it “Mallus Intercursus”) and that they would not harbour enemies of each other respectively, meaning that people such as the De La Poles and Warbeck. Though initially this was an economic failure because of the three years of
The first method Henry VII used to strengthen his authority as King was by making a public vow to marry Elizabeth of York, daughter of Edward IV and Elizabeth Woodville, in 1484. He then fulfilled this promise in 1486 and married Yorkist Elizabeth. This gave a huge advantage to Henry as it united the houses of Lancaster and York. To symbolise this Henry created the Tudor rose, putting the two houses colours together. The marriage reconciled factions giving him strong authority.
Louis XIII (1601-1643) and Louis XIV (1638-1718) was a father son pair of kings for the French, who both believed to rule by divine right, but they differed in how they used their religious factor in their country and how they managed their kingdoms finances. Louis XIII relied on his Cardinal who helped him rule and manage the kingdom. While Louis XIV trusted only himself to rule his Monarchy. This led to different outcomes in their monarchies. Louis XIII and Louis XIV both claimed to rule by divine right.
source 2 is different to sources 1 and 3 as it backs up the idea that Scotland was a threat to henry’s ambitions. it shows that England was able to deal with this threat effectively in source 1 we learn that henry was unable to raise a head tax in the northern counties in 1513, and that he did not deal with the counties to pay as of fear of rebellion. not only would the failure to raise money jeopardise henry’s aims and ambitions in France, his ability to wage war in France was also threatened by the prospect that James VI might take advantage of the rebellion in the north to invade, therefore henry had to “strive” to keep his subjects loyal, “supisious” says Vergil of James’s intentions. Vergil writes about the instability of henry’s rule in the north and the strength of the Scottish
What could be known as his main concern for going to Britain was that he was trying to protect his homeland, nowadays known as the Netherlands. The Netherlands was under constant threat of attack from France, which was ruled by Louis XIV at the time. To defend the Netherlands, William was willing to create alliances with both Protestant and Catholic monarchs. William needed control of the English army and navy to use against France, this is why he invaded England in 1688. William also had to be sure that Scotland did not become a problem during his war with France, and so agreed to a Presbyterian settlement of the Scottish Church in 1690, in return, the Scottish parliament agreed to fund 28 months of William's war against the French.
The American Revolution did not satisfy the colonial goals for civil, political, social, and economic rights; however the Constitution did. All the American Revolution did was drive the British out of America. With the British gone the Americans had the ability to strive for civil, political, social, and economic rights, but the Articles of Confederation became an obstacle in their path to their rightful goals. During the American Revolution the American people wrote a lot about what they wanted to accomplish and attain. In Document A, the Declaration of the Causes and Necessities of Taking Up Arms, it is written that the American people feel they have been wronged by England because their rights are restricted and wish for these basic rights to happiness and such.

This allegiance derives the King's authority from his inheritance and the common knowledge that this is the way the political order in the country should be determined. Henry has substituted this for his own power and become king, not from any legitimate, traditional claim but simply because he has a military superiority over the legitimate king and the desire to get rid of Richard. The usurpation of Richard II leads to serious repercussions such as an uprising of Welsh supporters of the slain King against Henry IV. However, the play additionally investigates the theme of honor and the character development of Prince Hal. The following essay will detail how far "Henry IV Part One" is a play that explores the consequences and civil
