thesis
Thesis

The growth of absolutism in Eastern Europe made rulers superior over the lower classes in a way they believed kept their area in balance and growth. Some believed they still needed to challenge royal authority during the rise of Austria, Prussia, and Russia. Although these challenges were to prove something to these rulers, they were known to be crushed and feeble.

conclusion
Conclusion

In conclusion, the absolute power of the state dominated those who challenged royal authority. Challenges were from the Bohemian Estates, Hungarians, Junkers, Cossacks, and peasants. Most of these challenges were ineffective and failed to produce results. In some cases, compromises were able to be achieved. The rises of Austria, Prussia, and Russia were only possible because the royal authority won over these challenges. Overall, the absolute ruler or monarchy weren’t able to be overrun by these challenges.
