Divine Right of Kings - Part I

taco24Taco24 on 04/07/2008

DivineRightofKingsPartI Photo Absolutism was derived from the traditional assumption of power and the belief in the “divine right of kings”. The approximate time period for this system normally was stated as 1589 to 1715. Absolute monarchs were not subordinate to national assemblies. Unlike Eastern European aristocrats, Western nobles were effectively brought under control. In addition, bureaucracies in the 17th century were often composed of career officials appointed by and solely responsible to the king. Within France and Spain, monarchs had effective control of the Roman Catholic Church. Finally, monarchs no longer relied upon mercenary armies as had been the case in the 15th century.
The following quiz asks pertinent questions regarding the social, economic, intellectual, and political aspects of absolutism. It is hoped that you learn something after taking the quiz.

Good luck!
