When the Saxons found out about William the Conqueror being King of England the Saxon population rebelled. The Saxons didn’t like the thought of having a foreign King, as they wouldn’t understand the English way of life. Norman’s weren’t in a very strong position after the battle of Hastings. They didn’t take over London as soon after they arrived in England, they had problems over his 5000-6000 men and not only that but they were against 2million hostile Saxons. The Saxon rebellions were a serious threat to William as they were mainly large rebellions, and on some occasions the Saxons would be helped by the Vikings or Scots, they would get Earls to help them fight because they were experienced when it came to fighting.
This move formed a large and influential religion in England which is still present to this day. At the time though, an effect of this was the death of thousands of men and women who refused to convert to the Church of England, it is estimated that 72,000 people were executed during Henry VIII reign for their refusal to convert (Heal, 2009) The Battle of Bosworth Field effected England, politically, socially and through the military, it ended decades of conflict in the War of the Roses, united the relations among many nobles and most notably for putting the Tudor family on the throne where the was very little chance that this would have happened otherwise. The Tudor dynasty lead to the reformation of the Church in England as well as the reformation of the parliamentary systems and government.
Richard the Lion heart was the main reason for this loss. Richard was king before John and had made his nobles in France very angry because he took so much of their money to finance the wars in France and the crusades and they were angry about being ruled by an English monarch. Most of these nobles thought Arthur of Brittany were the man for the job. Most of the people in France weren't happy that John was their new King and went to war against him. At first this went well for John and captured many of his enemies, including Arthur of Brittany.
In conclusion, from reading this essay it is not hard to assume John was a terrible King. His loss in 1204 because of diplomacy and not getting military aid and advice from Barons led to a chain reaction of events. He raised taxes enormously for no real reason other than targeting Barons who did not join his war cause and this was how Barons began to despise him. He soon after was the judge and had absolute authority over his subjects, fining and putting them away in jail because he did not like them. John was so rich from the taxes that half of England’s coins were in John’s possession (mrbuddhistory) but after the war in 1214, he had lost all of those taxes and they were all for no benefit.
His rival was the Duke of York, who was of course, a Yorkist. York was very unhappy about the fact that Henry wouldn't allow him on his council, a group of lading noblemen that advised the King. He felt he should be the Kings chief advisor, a position held by the Duke of Somerset. There were many battles during the war but there were 6 battles that really shaped the war. The war officially broke out in St Albans in 1455.
During this trip Norman writers maintain that he swore to support William's claim to the English throne. Yet when Edward died childless in January 1066, Harold was himself crowned king. Furious, William decided on war. He landed in England on 28th September, establishing a bridgehead near Hastings. Harold met him from Stamford Bridge, where he had just defeated Harald Hardraade.
The French were ill served by their leadership during most of the war with the exception of Charles VI, who chose the right strategy for his reign. One of the main reason's for France's eventual victory was the simple fact that France was too large nation for the English to defeat. Realistically, the English never had much hope of defeating France and the English conduct of the war was such that France would stay outraged and continue to fight. One of the largest factors in the overall English defeat in the Hundred Years War was their loss of focus in the strategy they employed during the course of the war.
He was known as "King George the Third." He was disliked and even hated by many colonists because of the fact that he was in another part of the world, but still had the power to control colonists in America in a way that they did not like. He provided taxes and acts that made the colonists suffer in financial issues, governmental problems, and much more. In order to prevent this from happening, Americans were forced to start a war, and if they couldn't end it off with a victory, they surely would not gain the freedom that they have dreamed of. In 1765, the colonists had not been happy with the taxation of King George.
The poor created their uprising over the lack of food and basic life necessities. Additionally, the nobles and clergy protested over land rights and taxes. Another element that distinguishes the French Revolution was that many of the French nobles became disgruntled with the events in France and left to become mercenaries assisting others throughout Europe to over-throw the ruling monarchs in other countries.
