    Lindsay, Justin,
    When people think of Crisis and Absolutism, they think of Queen Elizabeth. She was one of the most influencial people in history. Elizabeth became the Queen in 1558. In the beginning she didn't rule over a whole lot of people. During her reign the small island kingdom became the leader of the Protestant nations in Europe. It also laid the foundations for a world empire. Something else that she did was that she solved religious problems. She repealed the laws favoring Catholics. This act named Elizabeth “the only supreme governor” of both church and state. This made the church Protestant, but it followed a moderate Protestantism that kept most people satisfied.

    The Thirty Years' War was a very important event. It took place after the Peace of Augsburg in 1555. The Thirty Years' War was a dipute over religion in Germany. The calvanists weren't reconized by the peace settlement. As they spread to many parts of Europe, it lead to an outbreak called the “last of the reigious wars”. The war began in 1618. it took place in the lands of the Holy Roman Empire. At first it was hard for the Catholics that rebelled against Hapsburg. Then later France, Denmark, Sweden, and Spain entered the war. Then there was a struggle between France and Spain for European leadership. This made it so that Germany would not be united for another two hundred years.

    The Suez canal was a big project during this time. It was completed in 1869. it was contracted by Ferdinand de Lesseps. The British took a big intrest in Egypt after the canal was opened. They believed it was a “lifeline to India”. At this time the canal was mostly owned by the British. They then thought that should also control the Sudan to protect their instrests in Egypt and the Suez canal. But to ruin their plan, Muhammad Ahmad took control of Sudan.
    In 1810, Mexico had their first revolt. At this time Miguel Hidalgo did his best to free the Indians and mestizos from the Spanish. He Said “My children, this day comes to us as a new dispensation, are you ready to receive it? Will you be free? Will you make the effort to recover from the hate Spaniards the lands stolen from your forefathers 300 years ago.” he said this to rouse them up to prepare to become free. They later formed a mob armed and attcaked the Spaniards. The mob wasnt strong enough and the Spaniards sent Hidalgo to death.
