This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on The Age of Absolutism - Absolute Monarchs - Summaries. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
During the period of 1450-1750 the majority of rulers were monarchs who felt that they had divine power vested in them by God known as the Divine Right. When a single leader governed a nation single-handedly, he or she was said to be an absolute leader and absolutism existed.
Monarchies encouraged the spread of nationalism which was sometimes taken to extremes. For instance, religious conflicts broke out such as those between Protestants and Catholics. Internal warfare between a monarch and the noble class was also very common. Battles also commonly resulted from trade-related clashes between nations.
At the start of this time period Spain reigned supreme with a powerful navy and vast empire. Later on, however, the power shifted to two rivaling powers-in-the-making: France and Britain.
The presentation covers the following:
Ferdinand & Isabella
The Tudors (2)
Ivan the Terrible
