Universities Rise

Universities are going up everywhere because of the importance of education. More than 11,000 people are now attending them. Classes go until 10 AM, they had a break for lunch, and then continue their classes until 5 PM. sadly, women aren't allowed to attend because they're expected to stay home and be loving house wives. I can predict that they will affect the future because universities will be needed to educate people for the jobs they will work in the future. I also think that they should allow women to attend so they can learn and work like men do, so they can help provide for their family.

Henry VIII- King of Kings

Henry II was an amazing leader, who many looked up to. He was made the Duke of Normandy at 17 years old, and only went up from there. In 1154, he became king of England. Henry was an energetic ruler, driven by a desire to restore the lands and privileges of his grandfather's, Henry I of England, rule. During the early years of Henry II's reign he restored the royal administration in England and gained complete control over his lands in Anjou, Maine and Touraine.

Sadly, Henry's empire did not long outlast him and collapsed during the reign of his youngest son John. However, any of the changes Henry introduced during his long rule had major long-term consequences. Henry's legal changes are considered to have been the basis for the English Common Law, while his intervention in Brittany, Wales and Scotland had a significant long-term impact on the development of their societies and government systems.

Letters from Soldiers

civilian George Smith has found a letter on a battlefield, seemingly from a soldier:

 

"log 12,

 

I am a Christian knight like most of my friends. But I am one of the last ones standing and I am hiding hoping to survive. To anybody that finds this, please tell my family that I love them. Tell them that I miss them and that if I don't come home, I risked everything to protect them. It is cold and brutal out here. If I had known at the time that war was going to be as rough as it is now, I would've never joined the knighthood. I just wish that I could come home..."
