Absolutism is happening...
Absolutism into Louis the XIV
- What is an absolute monarch?
- What is the divine right of kings?
- What is sovereignty? How do all three of these concepts fit together?
- Could you compare someone today to an absolute monarch?
We will likely have some sort of Quiz next week, towards the middle or end of the week, so we will make sure all students are keeping up with the work so far. As we move towards Winter Break we are hoping to get right up to the French Revolution so that when we come back from break we will focus on the reaction to all these absolute monarchs, although there will be no eating of cake. Have a great weekend!
Philip II of Spain
We will be covering him next week, he helped to bring in Spain's golden age.
