I don't study Nazi Germany, but I study the Stuarts.

If you've started studying the Stuarts please can you answer my question - Was the Divine Right of Kings the same thing as the Royal Prerogative or was the Prerogative derived from the idea of Divine Rights?

Thank you

you probably shouldn't completely take my word on this but, I believe that Royal Prerogative was the right that the King (or Queen) had the right to do as they wish/set laws as they pleased due to their status. Divine Rights was the idea that due to being seen as 'God's anointed' the Royal did not have to answer to anyone but God.


How are you finding Stuarts?

I don't think it's too bad. I found it quite boring at first because I wanted to do the Tudors, but the Stuarts are actually just as interesting. What about you?

At the moment I dont really like it that much but thats because my teacher hasn't been here for 3 of the weeks, but generally her teaching consists of her own opinions so it's a bit hard to grasp but my textbook has came so hopefully itll be easier

If you can get the book Stuart England by Angus Stroud, it's really helpful and it's quite easy to understand too.

I'm doing Tarist-Communist Russia which is really interesting, and The Making of Modern Britain, which is basically all politics and economics. Luckily, I got into politics at the end of year 12, but I feel really bad for those that find politics uninteresting because it just doesn't fee like history.

I'm in year 13 now! Came out with an A at AS, 40/40 on the America paper and 30/40 on the Tudor paper (I flopped...) I love both modules though, really couldn't have got a better combination as they're both hella interesting.

Good luck, it really is probably the two most exciting time periods to be studying.

As am I! And I completely agree, it's a really good combination as they're so different in terms of factors and therefore you don't get overwhelmed
