Source 4 agrees with the view that Henry VIII’s foreign policy failed because he lacked the resources to fulfil his aims. From source 4 we can learn that Henry’s allies proved to be dishonest and untrustworthy as they were bribed to go against the treaty they had made with England, “His allies proved unscrupulous and unreliable. Maxamilian and Ferdinand were bribed by the French to disown their treaty obligations to England, leaving Henry to fight alone”. Henry VIII struggled to fight alone and “accepted the fact that royal finances could not support a repetition of the campaign of 1513. So instead of overthrowing the King of France, Henry made peace with him.
The Pope put an interdict on John's lands which meant services couldn't be held in churches, and no weddings or burials could be done. The pope excommunicated King John and when he threatened to do the same to his soldiers, King John gave in. John was a good king in only very few aspects which were that he looked good, had a heir and he kept law and order. Yet in the rest of the jobs he was quite a bad king, for example he only supported the church when it fitted with what he wanted, he also didn't listen to the advice of the barons , another thing was that he collected very high taxes he also didn't lead his army to war and lost all of his wars. One of the important reasons was thing the King was meant to do was to consult his barons, but John only listened to a few favourite mercenary soldiers, not the barons.
The mistake that Madison made was going to war with Great Britain. They were worried because they believed that Americas “peace, prosperity and happiness… are in Great jeopardy… the general government have determined to make war on Great Britain” (I). There are many reasons that he should have not gone to war with Britain such as there is not enough troops to fight a good battle, this will only hurt our economy and bring us more into debt, and since we are always fighting Britain about something was this a real reason for a war? The first reason Madison should not have gone to war with Great Britain is this. There are not enough troops in America to successfully produce a war.
Explain the problem facing congress and its cause in your case study. The problems facing congress involved many people complaining to them. For example states vs. congress was a problem due to the fact that they did not agree with the treaty of paris or to allow loyalist to remain in the country. Congress also had a problem with British because congress lacked the power to force britain to withdraw its troops from great lakes. Lastly, Congress also had a problem with the spaniards clue to the facts spain did not want anyone to comw to the westward of the land because that was spains trading system.And due to congress being weak they surrendered.
How far was Alexander III a reactionary leader? Alexander was not prepared for the role of the Tsar, and so when his father died, he was thrust into a position of power, that he wasn’t ready for. He was a soldier, and because of this, was not trained for political meetings and hours of sitting in a chair, discussing the workings of a nation. Alexander made it clear that he didn’t want to be his father, and to do this, he needed to undo some of the things he did, and make changes to the country. Many criticised him for his personality, saying it overpowered his ability to think critically as a leader should, and lacked the education in subjects like economy.
After World War I, President Woodrow Wilson provided the global community with the only written statement of goals. His Fourteen Points addressed democracy, trade, nations’ borders, and a league of nations. His plan sparked much debate and revision in the world, but it was especially controversially debated in the United States. The lack of congressional support for ratification of the Treaty of Versailles stemmed mostly from the refusal to amend the 14 points, and the opposition to joining an international congregation dedicated to post-war plans. Opposition to the fourteen points was not solely limited to the United States.
Strong proponents of states rights like Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry were not present at this meeting. Many felt that the new constitution ignored the rights of states to continue to act independently. They felt that the states should still have the right to decide if they were willing to accept certain federal acts. This resulted in the idea of nullification, where the states would have the right to rule federal acts unconstitutional. The federal government denied states this right.
Charles I wanted to have more money, but the Parliament would not give it to him. Charles I disbanded Parliament because they did not trust him, all he wanted was money but he was to poor. So because of this he ignored Parliament and began to tax people. No one liked this at all because it was unfair that he was taxing everyone for his own benefit, and to help the wars. He needed the money for the wars because Parliament refused to help
The Treaty of Versailles made to keep the peace after World War 1 was weak and had many faults, like Article 231 which unfairly blamed Germany for World War 1. The League of Nations created by the Treaty of Versailles also was ineffectual due to its “lack of teeth.” For there to be stability in Europe international diplomacy needed to achieve strong social, economic and political foundations. Stability in Europe was dependent on international diplomacy following the Treaty of Versailles. These agreements and pacts were to build a new, better foundation of peace. Interpretations B, C and D suggest this never happened, instead only an illusion of peace was formed.
As a result of these political, social and economic failures, the Post Civil War reconstruction was a failure. From a political standpoint, there was anything but success. The goal was to unify and equalize the nation, and build trust but neither of these was accomplished. For example, ex-confederate leaders were not allowed to hold office. This exacerbated sectional tensions rather than quell them because the country could not unify if there was inequality existing.
