Although Charles did many bad and dangerous acts, it wasn’t only Charles fault the civil war started. This essay will tell the reader who was to blame and why they were to blame. In my opinion I think that it was Charles fault because he made many greedy and stupid mistakes. Religious causes Long term causes Charles believed that when he became king he inherited from his father, the divine right of kings. This meant that he thought that God guided him in everything that he did or said.
Although foreign policy was significant in creating discontent between the Crown and Parliament, there were also other factors to consider. For example, Charles implementing the forced loan and the Three Resolutions, after Buckingham’s death. Buckingham’s initial french policy of sending British troops to fight against the Huguenots who were Protestants brought unease among the MPs as they feared that Buckingham was supporting the Roman Catholic french Royals. So to gain popularity, Buckingham decided to help the Huguenots and led a naval expedition at La Rochelle in 1627. This was a disaster and Buckingham had to retreat his troops without even aiding the Huguenots, which made him become the most despised man in England as he was seen responsible for the military failures.
The origins of rebellion arose when people in England opposed Mary’s catholic standing and were worrying over the possible return of papal authority over England, since mary’s coronation was in 1553 she quickly placed people of catholic standing in positions within the kingdom, including many positions in the privy council the most influential body within the government. This quick changeover within England is arguably what caused the Wyatt rebellion as it made the people feel anxious of the possible threat of going back to a papal authority, this can be reinforced by the following source ‘and yet thhe it be said in counsel as to my friend, we mind only the restitution of God’s word, but no words!’qhich was written by wyatts son showing us that Wyatt was rebelling to the threat Mary posed to religion, but it can also be inferred that although this was his motive he felt that this reason wasn’t acceptable to cause a greater enough rebellion to remove Mary from the throne so he says that they should use a different reason, as generally it can be argued that Mary’s catholic influence across England were relatively popular, possibly why the rebellion was shown little support.

(pbs). This came from a group called the Sons of Liberty and are they are who led a boycott against the British. This made the change of economics with the colonies and caused them to lose money rapidly and this is when the colonists rebelled against the British and were no longer paying their debt for them and the British were suffering dearly. After this the King used the Declaratory Act and taxed the colonies on lead, paper, paint and tea (americanrevolution). The colonists debated this and had these taxes revoked however, they could not have the tax on tea revoked and this tax stayed.
The King tried to force men to give up their rights to make laws. The King also called men together to make laws in the most inconvenient times and places, so they won't be able to go discuss the new laws. He made them pay all kinds of taxes without asking them about it. The declaration was the way colonist expressed that they wanted to be free from the King and of England. Some of the laws the king made were unfair and unconventional.
The American colonists started to get angry with British. Britain had finally won the French and Indian War, which protected the colonies, so the British thought that the Colonists should shoulder the burden of the debt that the war put England in. The British imposed the Stamp Act on the Colonies, taxing every stamp the Colonies put on official print, in order to try to get out of their debt. Samuel Adams protested that the Stamp Act was taxation without representation. Samuel Adams was one of the first revolutionaries (men who wanted to and did start the revolution).
In 1213 he collected so much money from taxes that half of all the coins in England were his to spend. By doing this he aggravated the Barons, good Kings consult their Barons when handling big decisions but John didn’t. The facts suggest that the Barons got irritated when John didn’t consult them when important matters were being discussed; this was another long term cause of the rebellion. Another long term cause for the rebellion was the disagreement over the church. In 1205 John was in discrepancy with the Pope over who ought to be the new Archbishop of Canterbury, just like his father had done, John refused to let Stephen Langton, the Pope’s
The colonists were very independent during the 1740s, but once the French and Indian War started, many colonists realized that they need to unify to win. In 1754, Benjamin Franklin encouraged all of the colonists to unite, or else they would die and lose the war. (Document A) After the French and Indian War was over, the colonists began to unite against the taxes that the British were forcing them to pay. The colonists thought the taxes were unfair because they weren’t being represented in England where the taxes were being made. Edmund Burke made a speech in front of British Parliament on behalf of many Colonists by saying that Britain needs to govern America like an English town
The Constitution and the amendments were written to fix the problems stated in the Declaration of Independence. Many different problems from the Declaration of Independence needed to be fixed through the Constitution. The king of Great Britain refused to set laws for the common, so according to the first amendment, the peoples common good is protected by the Congress. There were also economic problems stated in the Declaration of Independence. “For imposing taxes on us without our consent” (Declaration of Independence) Colonists were extremely angered by the fact that Great Britain felt as if they had the right to impose on taxes on the colonists without consent of the action.
The War of 1812 Dasha Everse Many people died in the war of 1812 because Britain and France were interfering with American trade and the Americans feared losing their land. However, if the countries involved had discussed their fears peacefully, they could have avoided needless death. In a world ruled by peace and love, everyone will be accepted as a unique individual. However in war and hatred, people are not free to be themselves. In the War of 1812, the Americans were not free to be themselves because the British and French were trying to take their land.
