This is a 27 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on The Age of Absolutism - Spain, France & England. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Age of Absolutism was a period of time when ruling monarchs wielded unrestricted political power over the sovereign state and its people. Their justification was that their rule was in fact a “Divine Right” from God.
Nations became superpowers but the strong rule created external conflicts, such as religious and colonial wars, and internal conflicts, such as revolutions and civil wars, as kings got too powerful.
Spain was ruled by absolute monarchy during the 1400-1500‘s. At that time they were the most powerful and richest country in Europe. France developed into a wealthy and powerful absolute monarchy from New World trade. England began developing a “Limited Monarchy” since the adoption of the Magna Carta of 1215, marking a move towards democracy.
