During the “Speech to the Troops at Tilbury,” Queen Elizabeth I showed a tone of inspiration during a time of great doubt, a flawless diction, and a syntax structure that showed great emphasis on each statement that summoned the passion out of her people. Tone is the most important attribute to have in a speech and the queen nailed it on the forehead. During a time when all hope was lost she showed great inspiration and determination that rejuvenated her people.

Firmness was shown and the leadership of a king was brought out of the queen and that earned loads of respect from her people and they figured out that this woman was not one to be taken lightly.

Jane Eyre is very similar to the Victorian Era in life styles, gender roles, and education. Part of Charlotte’s own life was also incorporated into the novel. The Victorian Era was when Queen Victoria was ruler. “The Victorian Age was characterised by rapid change and developments in nearly every sphere - from advances in medical, scientific and technological knowledge to changes in population growth and location” ( Shepherd). “Politics were important to the Victorians; they believed in the perfection of their evolved representative government, and in exporting it throughout the British Empire.” (Shepherd).

Eleanor, Queen of France and the Dissolution of Her First Marriage Krystal Thomas History 303 22 December 2011 Professor Harrison Eleanor of Aquitaine is best known as one of the most independent and defiant women of her time, which was highly unusual and looked upon negatively.

Eleanor was often accused of being a demon or a witch due to her scandalous behavior at times, the rumors and stories which surrounded her, and the powerful influence she spread during her reigns.

More powers of the prime minister include long-standing powers such as the royal prerogative, where sovereignty is exercised on behalf of the monarch, and cabinet management, a recently-developing power where the prime minister has the capability to chair, manage and convene cabinet
During the Civil War, Cromwell commanded his troops with courage, valour, bravery, and employed great tactics at the battles of Naseby, Marston and many others.

Against: Although, at first, Cromwell may have been fighting for democracy, not dictatorship, towards the end of his control, he became power-hungry, strict, cruel, and similar to King Charles. For example, In 1649, Oliver Cromwell made a speech in which he said: “We fought for a world in that the voice of the people is heard; now we have that world.” But, just four years later in 1653, he made a speech wherein he said: “It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonoured by your contempt of all virtue.
The Roman Catholics in those days thought Elizabeth 1st was the heretic queen in their eyes; however, for the protestant, she was their hero. As she brought fortune to a country that was considered poor [in comparison to other superpowers (during that era) such as France, Spain, or Portugal], she was one of England’s best rulers, despite all the religious conflicts. Also, she dedicated pretty much all of her life for England. Mary Queen of Scots had previously claimed Elizabeth’s throne as her own and therefore perceiving her as a threat to Elizabeth. Furthermore, Elizabeth had her arrested.
