Question and answer
Do you think that England would have become a constitutional monarchy without the conflicts between Catholics and Protestants?
Religion was another great issue which brought the Stuart monarchs into conflict with Parliament. [ The theory of absolute monarchy logically implies not only that the king be politically sovereign, but also that he dominate the economic and religious life of his kingdom. Absolute rulers, whether Catholic or Protestant, have always favored a single established religion under their control.
But the break with Rome opened the door for more radical reformers from the continent to come to England to change the theological basis of the Church in a more Protestant direction. Martin Luther and John Calvin had challenged the belief in saints, miracles, the number of the sacraments, the episcopal organization of the church, and above all the nature of the Mass.

Peter the Great and Catherine the Great were examples of the positive uses of absolute monarchy. Do you think that they could have accomplished the same things in a constitutional monarchy?
Weegy: Catherine II ruled Russia during a period of epic expansion in which Russia added nearly 20,000 square miles of territory to its domain. [ In order to administer the new lands and ensure the fair treatment of their inhabitants, Catherine in 1767 ordered a royal commission to compose a series of new laws that would fully reflect her vision for the Russian Empire. She provided the commission with lengthy instructions concerning the issues and principles to be woven into the new law code. Catherine's constitution, or "Great Instructions," reflected her admiration of the French Enlightenment and Enlightenment thought. She wrote important Enlightenment figures regularly and even paid for Diderot's library. She subsidized his "Encyclopedia" when the French would not. Catherine's "Instructions" were based on the premise that Russia was a European state and should be governed by European principles. This assumed Russia would be governed by an absolute monarch whose authority rested in the rule of law. Catherine leaned on Montesquieu's L'Esprit des lois and Beccaria's ideas on crime and punishment. The "Instructions" were very general in scope and provided no real legislative structure. The royal commission convened in Moscow in July 1767, but when the Turkish War broke out in December, the commission adjourned and no section of code was ever completed. Catherine's grand plan never came to fruition. ] (More)

Napoleon is repeatedly referred to as a despot or tyrant. Why do you think the French people tolerated him and the return to monarchical rule?
Weegy: The people of France elected Napoleon as the Emperor, [ [ because he saved France from its enemies and he defended the gains of the Revolution at home. Napoleon established both the Bank of France and the French bourse (stock exchange) as well as National and Departmental Tax Boards, to insure equitable taxation for all. Consequently, the income of the French peasants skyrocketed. ] ] (More)
