One of the most powerful leaders in history!
Philip II's Goals as a leader
What did Philip do to Achieve his Goals?
Phillip knew that people always had tricks up their sleeves to try to overtake other people's power. Knowing of this, Phillip never let his secretaries or councils control him. Having much work for just one man to do, King Phillip was often behind on things. Though he would not let is secretaries or councils control him, he would allow them to assist him in things he needed help with. Philip was not a fan of protesting. Not being a fan of protesting, Phillip went to the auto de fe, which was one of a many series to eliminate Protestantism. if people were not allowed to protest, people could not protest against his desire for an all Catholic country. This thought made him want a protest free country all the more just for that reason.
