Shakespeare knew that King James was becoming very skeptic about the supernatural; therefore, he included the many abilities that a person’s imagination could have on their actions. This ultimately proved that people’s minds could make them see, hear, and do certain things. It also proved that the supernatural did not have to be involved to make people do evil things. Shakespeare altered Banquo and Duncan in his play by making Banquo virtuous and Duncan feeble. This made King James happy because his ancestor was represented as a good person and made the murder look more gruesome.

In 1047 a serious rebellion of nobles occurred, and William with the aid of King Henry of France, gained a great victory at Val-ès-Dunes, near Caen. Which led to the capture of the two strong castles of Alençon and Domfront. Using this as his base of operations, the young duke, in 1054 made himself master of the province of Maine and became the most powerful vassal of the French Crown, able on occasion to bid defiance to the king himself. William even married Matilda, the daughter of the Earl of Flanders, in 1053,in spite of the papal prohibition. In 1066 when his claim to the English throne was threatened by Harold Godwinson.
In May of 1337, the nations were looking for national identity and were attempting to become stronger. This provided the fuel needed for the Hundred Years War that was sparked by Edward III's claim to the French throne. Charles IV succeeded his father Phillip IV the Fair to the French throne, and died leaving no male heir. The 15 year old English king at the time, Edward III, grandson of Phillip the Fair claimed the throne as his own, but the French barons instead placed Charles IV's cousin, Phillip VI of Valois on the throne. This situation provided the start of the war, but was not the only reason behind it.
He is trying hard by showing his soft side by showing his affection for Katherine, especially on trying to speak in French. Bu yet, the concept of uniting his kingdom with theirs is still strongly visible. When Katherine eventually agrees to King Henry’s proposal, stating that the decision pleases her “de roi mon pére” [her king and her father] (5.2.257). This brings in the conclusion of both parties signing the treaties, which would make King Henry’s sons the future heirs to the throne of France when the King of France dies. However, due to its nice ending of success from King Henry’s part, the chorus in the epilogue does give a hard reminder that their son, Henry VI, did not help keep the union of two kingdoms.

For instance, if one were to be totally ignorant of the fact that the movie is based on a drama from the seventeenth century, he or she might mistake it for just another movie that features “Gandalf” and some flowering language. That being said, although Loncraine’s adaptation is a joy to watch, the modern elements that make it appealing to viewers who are not English majors or theater fanatics—elements such as its relocation in time, its lack of important scenes and especially its ending—ultimately leave viewers who are familiar with Shakespeare’s Richard III with a feeling that something was lost in its making.
In 1153 Henry returned to England after his stay in France and forced Stephens to name him the heir of the throne. Henry immediately appointed his long-term friend Thomas Becket, English Chancellor, to be Archbishop of Canterbury. Becket accepted the job of Archbishop in 1162 but he did it with some reluctance. Becket's unkind heart soon became a thorn in Henry's side. (Hay 107) By 1163, Becket had already defied Henry in one of his decisions.
From 1046 until 1055 he dealt with a series of baronial rebellions. In 1052, facing rebellions in eastern Normandy, he began conducting negotiations with his cousin Edward the Confessor, King of England. William developed an ambition to become his kinsman's heir, encouraged by Edward, who possibly even promised him the throne in 1051. In around 1064 Edward sent Harold, Earl of Wessex, on an embassy to Normandy. During this trip Norman writers maintain that he swore to support William's claim to the English throne.
Henry VI of England was claiming the French throne. Joan convinced the captain of the dauphin’s forces, and then the Dauphin himself of her calling. After she passed an examination by a board of theologians, she was given troops to command and the rank of captain. In May 1429 at the battle of Orleans, Joan led the troops to a miraculous victory over the English. She continued fighting the enemy in other locations along the Loire.
King Louis could decide to go to war. He could make laws and repeal them on a whim (Biography, Cranny pg.62). As a leader, Louis XIV used war to try and resolve problems. However, he did build the Palace of Versailles and help establish the western world’s first dance institution; both of which still draw tourists from around the world. Louis XIV aimed at expanding French territory through the means of wars.
