Queen Victoria was the longest reigning of the British monarchs, coming to the throne at the age of eighteen. She was the daughter of the Duke of Kent, fourth son of George the third and of Princess Victoria Leiningen of Saxe-Coburg. It seemed likely from her earliest years that she would one day inherit the throne, and so was carefully brought up, under the care of a Hanoverian governess,Fraulein Louise Lehzen.
The two major influences in her first years as Queen were her uncle, Prince Leopold, and Lord Melbourne, her first Prime Minister. Both were sophisticated ...

During Elizabeth’s reign, England expanded trade overseas and the merchant community grew. Private shipbuilding boomed and navigational advances made long sea voyages safer. England’s chief commodity was woolen cloth, traded mostly at the Dutch port of Antwerp for finished goods and such luxuries as French wines. Cloth exports grew over the course of the reign, but suffered from competition from finer Spanish products and from Antwerp’s decline after its harbor silted up and became impassable by the mid-1560s. In the 1560s financier Sir Thomas Gresham founded the Royal Exchange to help merchants find secure markets for their goods.
At the same time, new enterprises like the Muscovy Company were chartered to find outlets for English products. In 1600 the government granted the English East India Company a monopoly to trade in Asia, Africa, and America. The desire to expand overseas ...

The area around Venice was inhabited in ancient times by the Veneti. According to tradition, the city was founded in AD 452, when the inhabitants of Aquileia, Padua, and other northern Italian cities took refuge on the islands of the lagoon from the Teutonic tribes that invaded Italy during the 5th century. They established their own government, which was headed by tribunes for each of the 12 principal islands. Although nominally part of the Eastern Roman Empire, Venice was virtually autonomous. In 697 the Venetians organized Venice as a republic under an elected doge. Internal dissent disturbed the course of government during the following century, but the threat of foreign invasion united the Venetians. Attacks by Saracens in 836 and by the Hungarians in 900 were successfully repulsed. In 991 Venice signed a commercial treaty with the Saracens, initiating the Venetian policy of trading with the Muslims rather than fighting them. The Crusades and the resulting development of ...

Thinking of joining the ranks of the greatest photographers of all time? Well, it might be a good idea to check out a few of them and the works they've done so you know just what it is you're up against. Probably one of the most famous photographers of all time was Ansel Adams. Adams was born In San Francisco California in 1902. He lived in Carmel until he died in 1984. His most popular photo was titled "Moonrise Over Hernandez, 1944". This is a breathtaking photo showing a beautiful night view and the small town below it.
The action takes place in Denmark around year 1200. The queen becomes a widow after the king Hamlets death. Two month later she gets married. Her husband is the king Hamlets brother, Claudius. But the young Hamlet is deeply sad and he wears all the time black clothes. He is very suspicious about his fathers death and he thinks his step father is the murder because he spoke to his dead fathers ghost.
Alexandrina Victoria was the only child of the fourth son of King George III: Edward, duke of Kent. Her mother was Victoria Maria Louisa of Saxe-Coburg, sister of King Leopold of the Belgians.
She had lost a devoted husband and her principal trusted adviser in affairs of state. For the rest of her reign she wore black. Until the late 1860s she rarely appeared in public; although she never neglected her official Correspondence, and continued to give audiences to her ministers and official visitors, she was reluctant to resume a full public life. She was persuaded to open Parliament in person in 1866 and 1867, but she was widely criticised for living in seclusion and quite a strong republican movement developed.
Cea mai mare realizare a lui Edward, din punct de vedere militar, a fost cucerirea Tarii Galilor. Sudul Tarii Galilor a fost indelung colonizat de normanzi, care n-au reusit insa decat sa impuna o autoritate vaga asupra principilor din nordul Tarii Galilor. Atunci Llywelyn cel Mare (1194-1240) a transformat nordul Tarii Galilor intr-un principat puternic. In urma domniei lui Henric al III-lea, Tara Galilor a ramas independenta, insa in 1276 Llywelyn ap Gruffydd (Ultimul Llywelyn) a refuzat sa se inchine lui Edward.
Astfel, inca de la inceput, monarhia normanda a Angliei a fost mult mai puternica decat majoritatea monarhiilor de pe continent - cu siguranta mult mai puternica decat monarhia franceza - iar in 1066 Wilhelm a reusit sa obtina un juramant de credinta de la toti vasalii din tara, cu implicatia nefeudala ca loialiatea lor era in primul rand fata de coroana, iar apoi fata de lorzii de la care aveau pamanturile.
Era elizabetana - In acest timp Teatrul Elizabethan s-a dezvoltat si William Sakespeare, printre altii, a compus piese care s-au desprins de vechiul stil englezesc. A fost o era a expansiunii si a explorarii, timp in care Reformarea Protestanta a fost stabilita si aparata cu succes impotriva celei catolice venite de pe continet.Era elizabetana
