Further more, Henry, as Shakespeare viewed him, was a true star of England, who did give great, inspirational speeches to persuade his army, who did woo Katherine, and who did choose his responsibilities over friendship.

Ric... ... middle of paper ... ...ellions suggest that England under Richard III was unstable.
Later they would realize that this attitude towards Great Britain is what put them on the path to revolution. I found Anderson’s lecture enticing and very interesting. I liked how he spoke about some famous people that were involved in the war, such as George Washington, who also had a major impact on the war. Anderson considers Washington the founder of the successful American empire. At the end of his lecture, when Anderson allowed questions I thought that was really cool because you were able to think about his lecture from other people’s perspective.
Henry VIII wanted a male to take over his throne so when he felt his time was running out, Henry VIII needed to divorce his Queen at that time but the Catholic Church wouldn’t allow this. He separated from the church and brought England with him. He turned England into a Protestant nation. Needless to say people were confused and had to make huge adjustments. At the beginning of Elizabeth’s reign there was confusion.
Henry V is Shakespeare on leadership. Shakespeare celebrates this English monarch, displaying what makes him a good leader. Henry expels justice and mercy, he listens, he motivates, and his is gravely aware of his responsibilities as king. Young Henry is presented with a chance to rally great Britain (England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales) with a common cause and prove himself: by claiming and conquering France. Without a common cause his noblemen may quickly quarrel with each other and challenge the king’s authority.
His value of pride demonstrated his confidence which later resulted in his egotistical personality. Also, Iago’s value of ambition towards succeeding in his ruthless plan against Othello helped portray Iago’s trait of devotion towards achieving his goals. However, this ambition overtook his priorities. Othello’ ancient, Iago, may have succeeded in taking away the lives whom he wanted to get revenge against, however, due to his actions in play, Iago’s positive values of power, pride, and ambition turned against him in the end. Iago’s thirst for power over Othello and everyone else was clearly evident throughout the play which made him a reliable person; however, this power that Iago gained was later abused for the wrong reasons.
The play deals with the conflict between King Henry IV and his son, Prince Harry, and their tense relationship. King Henry is the ruling king of England. He is worn down by worries and guilty feelings about having won his throne through a civil war. Hal, the Prince of Wales who demonstrates his ability to manipulate others to complete his selfish goals.

He compares his potential leadership to that of a country’s flag- someone people will respect and admire. He truly believes he can be their new leader and puts himself on a pedestal. The Duke and Duchess posses many secrets. Findley explains how, "…an agent of Churchill’s [was]-- playing on David’s [Duke’s] drunkenness to discover how deep his treason ran."
After they had won the crusade they wrote to fellow monarchs with great pride delighting in the defeat of the Moors and the prestige that their victory would bring to them. As the leaders of a country, Ferdinand and Isabella were obviously in great want of wealth for both themselves and their country. What they would gain financially from their defeat was also an underlying motive
At the time, England is skeptical and worried for their future under their new, young king. Little did they know, their young, inexperienced king would quickly grow into an ideal one due to his great leadership and pragmatism. Leadership is undoubtedly the trait that led to Henry’s success as a king, and England’s success. For someone to be a leader, they must grow up from who they once used to be, and display stand out qualities.
