Absolute monarchs in the seventeenth and eighteenth century made sure to increase their power in order to have absolute authority. These monarchs all had several similar methods to control, consolidate, and increase power. Methods in these centuries included constructing grand buildings, controlling the nobles, and stimulating economic revenue.
Everything had began magnificently the day I attended the renaissance fair. It was the first time I’d ever been to any festival of the sort, and the air was full of magic. At exactly 10:30 in the morning, the ceremony began. The King and Queen presented
It was hard to find a seat in the hall, most of them were already taken. After wandering around looking for a place to rest my feet for what felt like hours, I found one single chair in the center of the room. That was when the bell rang, and each guest was presented with the largest plate of food anyone had ever seen. As I sat there eating I watched the soon to be King and Queen. They both seemed nervous, and were bitter toward one another. They did not share a look of love, but rather a look of brokenness. The brokenness faded and was replaced with excitement once the crown was brought out on the white satin pillow. That is when weird things began to happen.

"There is a spy! There are in fact two filthy, double-dealing, misleading, two-faced, liars among us!" I announce. Everyone gasps in horror as they are processing this dreadful news. I immediately start to panic. If these two spies got away with this information, the king would be informed, and that would be it for all the peasants. If I get put into prison, who will support my family? Michel is only 8, Adelina has no common knowledge on how to deal with money, and my poor, poor baby, Julienne, God bless you. I pity myself as I remember the hard times when no one could afford any bread, not that there was any at all. They were hard times. Julienne was down with the dreadful flu, no food or medicine to help, the next day, she was simply gone. This thought always brings me to anger. The nobles were just partying away while we peasants were dying. I had to end the absolute monarchy. Back to the situation, I thoroughly observed each, and every representative, watching their expressions and how the
is traditional in the royal family of Zamoonda, Africa. His father, King Jahfi Jahfar had been planning this wedding for many years. The woman who is groomed to be the prince's wife has been trained since birth to learn everything about the prince and what he likes. She is trained to fill his every desire. As it turned out, the Prince was not satisfied with his wife to
Prince Manfred even blames fate on his wife for only giving him one eligible heir. “But she never received any other answer then reflections on her own sterility, who had given him but one heir.”3 The paranoid thoughts that Prince Manfred has push him to make the wedding sooner than planned, thinking that it would be a faster end to the prophecy as well but, this is not accepted by his wife. He has lost complete control over his thoughts and his actions.
Thunder growled in the near distance, rain pelting the tower as thick, drab mist swirled through the forest. The bright sun struggled against the cloudy blanket that spread across the dark sky. Through the dense trees, there could be seen a tower. It stood proudly, it's imposing presence known to
Disrupted by the sound of an uncanny knock, the prince swore over the bitter winter’s night in great frustration. The sound of his footsteps echoed against the golden walls, shattering the omnipresent silence as he trotted down the staircase, that were exquisitely engraved with flowers and vines. The markings of
July the 3rd, 1066 Today I woke up with a hectic day ahead of me, my duties stopped me from spending time with my family. As I woke up at dawn the weather outside is wild as I dressed into my finest robe. I eat a small breakfast and then go outside doing my duties. I go outside and I speak to the lord about an trouble that had happened on my land. I then make my way down to the peasants, touching the sick and healing them. After this i would go back into my castle and the lords would give me taxes from the people who have been on my land, also they would report anything they saw in the distance and on the land. Some nobles then came running into the castle, complaining that the peasants and the surf aren't growing enough crops to provide them for there food, I then had to go speak
The castle casted a shadow almost darker than myself. Torches lit the quad with their warm, orange glow. Though I couldn't feel the heat that they projected. I walked through the walls and into this strange palace. This Prince Prospero certainly didn't spare any expense when he was built this castle. When Prospero created this sanctuary, this hideout in order to lock himself and all of his dames and knights from the dying outside world he allotted for every pleasure imaginable. There were courtiers sashing through the crowds, ballet dancer, musicians, beauty and all the wine once could drink. His guests were oblivious to me, they were oblivious to danger as they chatted
Many different types of art were found in both excavations of the palace of Nestor and the recently discovered tomb. These findings tell us how advanced their civilization was because of the tools, utensils, and jewelry that archeologists found. At the Palace of Nestor, many kitchen utensils were found. This includes 1,325 shallow bowls, 1,325 teacups, and 425 dippers, other known as a spoon. These appliances tell us that this civilization, which was believed to be Mycenean, was somewhat developed. They were able to have basic appliances and they were able to make a lot of them. Archeologists were also able to find a great abundance of beauty appliances and jewelry in the tomb. They were able to uncover 14,000 items next to the man’s
Allice ending The Allice ending is one that not many people know of and is often overlooked and those who do see it say it is some fictional that could never happen, but to some it is the True ending. The story starts off when the prince is trying to think of
Hayday Palace was built in the 8th Century by Princess Polly Anna. Since then it has had a long and war like history. It was destroyed by a fire in 1326. It was rebuilt over the 50 years by Princess Polly’s great granddaughter Emma. It was conquered by both the Welsh and the Irish who poisoned the well with whiskey. In 1952 the Americans mistook the palace for a forest in North Korea and bombed it. In 2004 Cowboy Builders LTD bought it that used one wing as a tenement building and the rest was waiting to be
This dear boy heard the smack of her hands, and taken aback did he search the lands. At last our hero found the girl of his dreams, he immediately thought of wedding themes. A large brass bell to sound off to their marriage, kissing within a horse-drawn carriage. This was it, he had to, he was a Prince after all. He was determined to make this beauty his thrall (but not like a subservient dame, because everyone knows that’s totally lame.)
