Absolutism in Central and Eastern Europe

taco24Taco24 on 04/08/2008

AbsolutisminCentralandEasternEurope Photo Three aging empires, the Holy Roman Empire, Ottoman Empire, and the Polish Kingdom were about to give way to the new empires of Russia, Austria, and Prussia. The Holy Roman Empire split Germany among Catholic, Lutheran, and Calvinist princes. The Ottomans could not maintain their possessions in light of Russian and Austrian expansion. Poland would eventually be devoured by Austria, Russia, and Prussia.
Eastern absolutism was different from the absolutism of the West. Eastern absolutism was based upon powerful nobility, weak middle class, and an oppressed peasantry composed of serfs. Threats of war from European and Asian invaders served as motivating factors for consolidation.
The quiz is based upon questions pertaining to the social, economic, intellectual, and political features of absolutism. Read the questions carefully before answering the questions. This is the third of my quizzes relating to absolutism. The fourth and final absoloutism quiz relates fully to absolutism within Russia.

Good luck!
