Title: Journal: From Wedding Reception to Massacre

Journal From Wedding Reception to Massacre
  • On August 24, 1572, the feast of St. Bartholomew,
    thousands of French Calvinists known as Huguenots
    were in Paris. They were celebrating the wedding
    of the Protestant Henry of Navarre to the sister
    of the king of France. This wedding was to unite
    the Protestant and Catholic parties in France and
    end the sectarian warfare that was tearing the
    country apart. The queen mother, Catherine de
    Medici, had other ideas. She persuaded the young
    king to order the elimination of all the Huguenot
    leaders. Mobs took over in a frenzy of killing.
    Between 2,000 and 3,000 Huguenots were killed in
    what has become known as the St. Bartholomews
    Day Massacre. Once more, civil war broke out in

Journal The Spanish Armada
  • As the Great Armada Católica set sail from Spain
    in the spring of 1588, the commander, Medina
    Sidonia, was concerned. The water and other
    supplies stored in the wooden casks on board the
    ships were spoiling. Many of the casks were
    defective. The English privateer Sir Francis
    Drake had raided Spain the year before and had
    burned many barrels intended for the armada
    supplies. New casks were built, but the staves
    were not seasoned wood. This caused leaks and
    spoilage. The Armada seemed doomed from the
  • What was the result of the Spanish Armada, both
    immediately and in the long run?

Journal Glorious Revolution
  • In 1688, the English chased out King James II and
    offered the crown to a Dutchman known as William
    of Orange. King William III ruled jointly with
    his English wife, Mary the first time in
    English history that husband and wife ruled
    together as equals. This event was known as the
    Glorious Revolution.
  • Why exactly was it glorious?

Journal Louis XIV
  • Louis XIV rarely talked at meals. He preferred
    to eat in huge quantities. A typical supper
    for Louis was four bowls of soup, an entire
    chicken, a pheasant, two slices of ham, a salad,
    some mutton, pastry, fruit, and hard-boiled eggs.
    Louiss dinner was often a ritual. It could be
    eaten au petit couvert (with family and
    friends) or au grand couvert (a state banquet
    with many attendants). Occasionally, Louis would
    dine au public. This meant tourists could go
    to Versailles to watch the king eat. The public
    would move in through one door and out another in
    a line while the king consumed his meal. Louis
    had many ways to keep the public enthralled with
    his role as the Sun King.
  • How did the building of his palace at Versailles
    reinforce the notion that Louis was the center of
    the French nation?
