Introduction

Ahsum Khan Mr. Larson AD MEH 1) Henry VII of England Henry VII or Henry Tudor was the King of England from August 22, 1485 to April 21, 1509. Why he is important to Modern European History is he brought England back to a state of stability by establishing a strong monarch, after the War of the Roses. If he hadn't done so, England would have been left in a state of political and economic instability; and there is a possibility that England could have been a state of instability for a long time, delaying their bound success in the future. One example of their future success is in the industrial revolution. 2) Edward III of England Edward III of England was the King of England from November 13, 1312 to June 21, 1377.

Middle

5) Napoleon I of France Napoleon was the military and political leader of France from August 15, 1769 - May 5, 1821 whose actions shaped European politics in the early 19th century. Why I believe he is important to Modern European History is he established the Napoleonic Code, which laid the foundations for most of Western Europe's political regimes. The code granted privileges based on birth, allowed freedom of religion, and stated that government jobs had to go the most qualified. 6) Maxamilien Robespierre Robespierre was one of the most well-known and most influential figures of the French Revolution. His reign in France was known as the Reign of terror, due to his "secret police" arresting and killing any traitors or threats to his reign. Why I believe he is important to Modern European History is after his brutal reign he left most of the French people desperate for a strong monarch to take control and stabilize the country. This led to Napoleon becoming dictator and then his Napoleonic Code. ...read more.

Conclusion

He is most known for starting the First Crusade and setting up the modern day Roman Curia, in the manner of a royal court, to help run the Church. Why I believe he is important to Modern European History is he started the First Crusade (one of the most controversial moves in history), which led to a lot of bloodshed and deaths on both sides of the battlefield. Now all it has done is have left the Muslims mad for losing Jerusalem, and continued violence and hatred between the Muslims and the Jews, and the Muslims the Christians, to this day. 10) Elizabeth I of England Elizabeth was the last monarch of the Tudor dynasty. She ruled from November 17, 1558 to March 24, 1603. Why I believe he is important to Modern European History is she supported the move to make and English Protestant Church of which, she became the Supreme Governor; this was called the Elizabethan Religious Settlement. This was important because it became the Church of England, the one still present today. Her drastic move to support a Protestant church in England actually, was a good because the Church was successful, and is still present today. ...read more.
