| 2. Does Robin Hood need to expand or change the mission and purpose of the organization? This will depend on the ultimate goal of Robin Hood. If the return of King Richard the Lionhearted is what the band pursuits, then changing their missions is necessary to join the Barons’ conspiracy in court intrigue. On the other hand, Robin can keep the band’s current objectives to help the poor, and put more pressure on the Sheriff and prince John to distract them from the scheme of the barons.
Furthermore, killing the sheriff does not solve the problems Robin faces with growing complacency and scarcity of resources. Option #3 Option 3 would have Robin working with the Barons to secure the return of King Richard. These barons were responsible for appointing Prince John in the first place and now want him gone. Robin has not dealt with
Indeed, the main problems are the sheriff, the organization of the Merrymen, and prince john. The Sheriff is undeniably one of the biggest threats for Robin and the Merrymen because of his determination to arrest them and bring an end to those who believe in robbing from the rich and give it to the poor. The Sheriff’s power also increase as the Merrymen does, he can be described as Robin Hood’s main competitor. The band of Merrymen is lead by Robin who assigns task to his fellowship “the lieutenants” to discipline, recruit, and teach whoever likes Robin’s system better than the current government. However, as the band of Merrymen grows larger, it is very difficult to organize it.
Opportunities arose with the invitation to join the conspiracy to help return the king for future amenity. The band with the leadership of the lieutenants could have the option to throw off the spies that were in place by Prince John but the threat is that if the plan failed the pursuit would be relentless and the retributions swift. The strategy that I would adopt for the organization if I were CEO would be to first change the motto and the purpose of the organization. The original purpose and motto of the band was “rob the rich and give to the poor” but when the number of members began to increase the robbing was defeating the purpose as it was not able to accommodate the poor because it was too busy caring for band members. The motto or “mission statement” needed to be revised due to the changing times, as well as
M.L Bush said that ‘It was interconnected regional rebellions rather than one fluid movement’ because once the rebels had gone back to where they lived dotted across the North of England they would all have to meet up rather than go down to London in one group. Also the rebels outnumbered the King’s army 4:1 when they were confronted at the River Don. Instead of accepting the King’s pardon they should have risked battle once they dispersed they were no longer a threat to Henry. They were the stronger force but they tried to negotiate before they had achieved anything. This is another point towards poor leadership because there was no clear plan in how they were going to get their terms accepted only what terms they wanted.
Catherine of Aragon played a vital role in delaying the annulment from Henry VIII. Her links to Charles V, her defence and her delaying strategy ultimately prolonged the annulment from Henry. However, we also must into account other factors such as the Sacking of Rome in 1527 where the pope himself was taken prisoner. Also, Henry’s timing of the annulment and his very poor strategy meant Henry was delaying the annulment himself due to this poor strategy. Firstly, Catherine of Aragon played a vital role in delaying the annulment from Henry because her links to Charles meant that Charles himself could intervene with the annulment.
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
This squashed Yorks ambitions to gain the throne for his heirs, After the announcement that the King and Somerset were to hold a council in leicester without the involvement of York and Warwick, York acted quickly to raise his army to intercept the Kings army. In some opinion this occurred because of Yorks ambitions of having power with the king and within the high council to have any chance of having royal heirs. But not only this caused conflict at the Battle of St Albans. Margaret of Anjou played a major part in the benign of conflict in England, She is believed to have convinced the king that York and Warwick were disloyal to the crown and should not be part of politics within England. With the King being weak minded in his later years it is understandable that he would have been easily manipulated.
They also had strong leadership and a realistic plan which meant that this rebellion was a threat to the Tudors. Lovell’s uprising also aimed to dispose of Henry and planned to kill him at York. Lovell’s uprising on the other hand didn’t have much support which means it can be argued that it wasn’t a threat even though they wanted Henry dead. However, the majority of rebellions before 1536 did not aim to dispose of the monarch, Warbeck’s rebellion wanted to be in power, however they didn’t want to kill Henry and be on the throne. The Yorkshire rebellion, Cornish rebellion, the amicable rebellion, western and pilgrimage of grace, all didn’t aim to dispose the monarch and were rebellions mainly based on social and economic issues.
