This shows that Wolsey was a successful chief minister in terms of justice because he saw it as his duty to bring everyone justice no matter how rich they were. But there were times when Wolsey used the courts to further his own position and carry out personal vendettas against enemies. For example Wolsey had been put in the stocks by Paulet in a bid to teach the young man a lesson about humility and good grace. Wolsey never forgot his humiliation and used his position as Lord Chancellor to have his revenge. Source 8 supports this because it says 'But Wolsey's vision and his originality in
Assess the achievements and impact of Tiberius as princeps Suetonius states that ‘it is my belief that Augustus scale’ weighed Tiberius good qualities against the bad and decided that the good tipped the scale’. This reveals the nature of Tiberius’ succession as one of necessity. Tiberius had huge feats to live up to from Augustus’ rule; however he endeavored to continually improve the Roman Empire. His most significant achievements were based around his military reforms, foreign and civil policies, increasing involvement of the senate and his successful civil administration that had a lasting impact on Rome. Therefore, it can be stated that Tiberius, despite given power with reluctance, continued to build Rome to new a level of greatness.
Being incredibly charismatic, and having a great campaign, Hitler was very likeable at first. Hitler used propaganda to make people like him, and to make the Nazi party seem the best option for Germany. He also held meetings for army and business leaders to woo them into liking his party, and to reassure them that the Nazi party was not to be feared. Hitler also changed his strategy and promised various things as the years went by, including promising to fight unemployment after the Great Depression, and becoming a non-violent speaker instead of a violent street protester after the Munich Putsch. This meant Germany always saw Hitler as trying to do good things, which made them like him enough to vote for his party.
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. This point does support how Edward was a good king because all sources show that it was his idea, not his exchequer. Edwards new policy showed that he managed the royal finances well because it meant that more revenue was coming in therefore he could run the country, as well as start paying of Henry’s debts. Additionally it meant that he could live of his own because he did not have to ask parliament to raise a tax. I think that this was possibly the most important cause to
This new set of laws meant that every French citizen had equal rights promoting the revolutionary idea of equality among all men. These codes secured property rights and also supported the revolutionary ideas subdivision of estates between male heirs.

One reason the Normans won was due to long-term causes. Duke William of Normandy won the battle because was well prepared and had a good army. They prepared carefully for the battle. The Normans had knights on horseback who were skilful fighters. The long-term causes were so important because William was skilful and ambitious, and he was determined to be King of England.
His slogan for the Bolsheviks, “Peace, Bread, and Land” was extremely effective in winning huge support from the people dissatisfied with the Provisional Government’s rule. He was also very adaptable as seen in the peace agreements with Germany so as to ensure the survival of Russia, which was already lacking in resources to continue in the war. This satisfied the people while influencing them to believe in him. Therefore with these leadership qualities, Lenin was very “well-equipped” in leading the Bolsheviks to seize power in October 1917. While Lenin’s leadership was a very significant reason, I would not say that is the most important.
During the early years of his reign Henry VIII had a few key aims which he felt he had to complete when he became king. Some of these goals included: Honour and Glory, Securing his Dynasty and demand for the French pension. Henry VIII��s main aim which he wanted to quickly achieve which he saw as vital was securing his dynasty; this was a big priority of Henry’s so that the Tudor dynasty was carried on into the next generation.

Ho Chi Minh, the vital leader in Vietnam's fight for independence had an enormous impact on the struggle against, and victory over the French. His early influences and surroundings whilst growing up had a significant impact in shaping Ho's views on French colonisation, leading him to establish the Indo-Chinese Communist Party, (the ICP). Through his political involvement in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh became the founder of the Viet Minh, where he gained essential support, resulting in many of his successes. His ability to appeal to all Vietnamese people led to him being perceived as a patriot by the Vietnamese. As well as being respected by his people, Ho Chi Minh was able to skilfully manipulate the French through his "superior political manoeuvring" .
Secondly, Henry helped the economy of France to grow, thus leaving his heirs with a large wealth that could be used (for example by Louis XIV) to bring greatness or power to France. He wanted France to become self-sufficient by barring the importation of goods. He also gave rise to the silk industry. He encouraged French people to start new companies, invest in new crops, for example maize (thus increasing agriculture), and he encouraged trading companies (de Monts in North America). To help the flow of this economic expansion Henry (and de Sully) improved communication, mainly via the water.
