Firstly, he was successful in managing the royal finances by innovatively using the Royal Chamber to efficiently manage the royal income. Unlike any of the previous monarchs, Ed began using the Royal Chamber increasing whereas before him all reliance had been upon the Exchequer. Now though, with this new scheme the revenue and expenditure was much more systematic and consequently the income rose significantly. Furthermore as he got older his experience increased, however even when he started he did a better job than his predecessor, Henry VII. Previous kings had only used the Chamber erratically in times of war however Edward decided to make it more systematic, which in turn siphoned in much more money.
The reform of finance and administration was the most important factor for Pitt’s domination of politics 1783-93 how far do you agree? On one had there is a strong suggestion that Pitts earlier political domination was made entirely by his skill as an administrator and financing his government. But the political situation at the time meant that there were many disadvantages facing him from very early on, hence the nickname the “mince pie” administration. There were many ways in which Pitt conquered over such problems like the Whigs and support within the Commons and the way he improved it, but what is the most important factor in his domination. Pitt from early on was a highly successful at implicating financial and administrative policies
Another way that Edward IV proved that he was not a ‘puppet king’ as Henry VI was seen as was by removing Warwick’s brother, George Neville, as chancellor. However, although these events showed that he was not controlled by Warwick, there were many failures that outweigh his successes when it came to dealing with the over mighty subjects. Edward was said to have ‘alienated’ Warwick, which then caused him to become over mighty. Warwick was the biggest land owner in England and therefore had a lot of power, maybe even too much power as some people thought when it came to Edwards’s decision. Edwards marriage to Woodville was said to show favouritism as he subsequently gave the Woodville family titles and arranged the best marriages possible for Elizabeth’s sister, meaning that Warwick’s daughters did not get the desired marriages.
Antifederalist leaders, including Samuel Adams and Patrick Henry, typically enjoyed more wealth and power than the people they led.I am sure these seemed like legitimate claims at the time, however, they are really fears unfounded by any proof. They thought that a government would do all these things but how could they be certain if they didn’t give it a chance? The Federalists, on the other hand, had answers to all of the Anti-Federalist complaints. Among them; the separation of powers into three independent branches protected the rights of the people. Each branch represents a different aspect of the people, and because all three branches are equal, no one group can assume control over another.
Political stability of Mongol rule also helped the Silk Road flourish as well as Pax Mongolia to come about. Pax Mongolia and Pax Romana were similar in the fact that there was a sense of peace. With the economy doing well, more ideas and innovations began to flourish. While peace wasn’t fully obtained in both empires, there was more peace than in the rest of the empires nations. Rebellions were very low and the few that there was they were easily put down.
This was the largest tax ever and was extremely significant in Wolsey’s financial campaign; Henry would most likely not have raised the funds for the war given his lazy demeanour, leaving the monarchy in a large debt. Wolsey further improved crown finances with the reduction of expenditure. Although Wolsey was not making any significant
However, wars generally led to very expensive costs to the country. Henry's father, Henry VII, left the country in quite a stable state economically, but Henry devoted most of England's money into his campaigns to take over France, because he believed had a right to the Throne. To some extent source 4 supports the idea that the foreign policy did fail due to the lack of resources, because it states that “the young warrior family accepted the fact that royal finances could not support a repetition of the campaign of 1513”. This quote implies that the lack of resources seems to be the dominant reason for stopping Henry from invading France and therefore source 4 supports the statement to some extent. In source 4 we also learn that much must have depended on diplomatic relations with Maximilian and Ferdinand, however Henry’s allies proved unfaithful and unreliable.
How stable was the Weimar Republic 1924-29 The real increase in prosperity experienced by many, and the cultural vitality of the period, gave support to the view that these years were indeed the ‘golden years’. However, historians have generally tended to question this stability because it was in fact limited in scope therefore these years could be seen as ‘deceptive stability’ also. Any disruption to the world’s trade or finance markets was bound to have a particularly damaging effect on the uncertain German economy. In reality, the middle years of the Weimar Republic were stable only in comparison with the other periods before and after. Weimar’s condition suggests that the fundamental problems inherited from war and the crisis has not been resolved.
In fact, Henry often carried out high levels of unnecessary expenditure, for example after 1491 he spent £300,000 on plate and Jewels. So in truth Henry raised money and spent money on a large scale and therefore the financial position of the crown was not improved in this case. Additionally, Henry's improvement of his financial position compared to that of his predecessors can be greatly exaggerated by some historians. Edward IV had efficiently restored royal finances after Henry VI's reign and therefore when Henry VII usurped the throne the finances of the crown were already relatively stable. Additionally, Henry's grasping nature was particularly unpopular among those expected to pay him and this stirred opposition making it difficult for Henry to collect revenues and improve financial stability.
He set up an independent royal council and handed it over to his nephew John de la pole. With his Nephew in charge there is potential for stability as its primary responsibilities were land disputes, keeping of the king's peace, and punishing lawbreakers. Keeping the North peaceful and in order. However this also angered the Northern Magnates. Other nobles who wanted to be in charge of the council of the north (Earls of Westmorland and
