The Tudors / Rick II and 1381
« on: August 30, 2005, 04:22:10 PM »
You know, i've read over the revolt of 1381 a lot, and it's strange. It's starting to strike me as much more of socialist revolution rather than a simple peasants' revolt. ???

The peasants, led by some of the squires and constables of the realm, tried to erase all evidence of their serfdom, in addition to pillaging and stealing the wealth of the gentry. Really strikes me as odd that they would do that.

But Rick manages to placate them, and increase his own power in the process. Pretty remarkable for a teenage monarch. :)

Hi! I'm new to this site. I was browsing around on google, trying to find some info for a research paper i'm working on for my Russian history class. I'm glad i found this site.

I love posting forums, and i participate in several online. I'm also a graduate student of history, European and Hispanic history in particular.

I need some help guys. I've been trying to find sources and books relating to the correspondance between Ivan the Dread and Elizabeth I. I'm working on a paper on this subject for my class.

Could yall help me out here? I can't seem to find a lot of info about these two characters, or their administrations. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!! :)

I also will hang out here some too. I love to participate in discussions relating to history. :)
