Why did the renaissance start in Italy? 25 points!!!

Answers

Answer 1
Answer: Hey there! 

The renaissance started in Italy for several different reasons. It was close to trade routes, had one of the best scholars, and contained a lot of wealth. To elaborate, the Italian cities gained control of their government and were extremely wealthy due to trade and industry. Many Italian families became bankers, which in turn, increased their wealth as well. Italians focused on education and the arts. Individual achievement was greatly stressed. This lead to the idea of a Renaissance Man. A Renaissance Man was an individual who excelled in education, travelled to near or far by places, and created or viewed works of art. One example of a Renaissance Man would be Leonardo Da Vinci. He is considered as one of the world’s most famous artists and had created the Mona Lisa.

Answer: French revolution started when General Estates were convened (1789). Such summoning of General Estates. That took place after almost 200 years because of financial crisis France of Louis XVI was suffering. The king needed to pay off kingdom´s depth. There was no money so had to raise the tax. Who was supposed to suffer was a so-called Third State (majority of population). At that time tension within society was already considerable.

Explanation: King together with aristocracy and clergy believed that - because formally they represented majority in General Estates - there would be no problem to increase taxes. But representatives of the Third State decided to establish themselves separately as "Assemblée Nationale" (National Assembly) and started to define new rules of politics. The court, aristocracy and clergy lost control. First constitutional monarchy was established (against Louis XVI´s will, of course), then republic was proclaimed and in January 1793 the king was executed (in 1794 the queen, Marie Antoinette, was executed as well). That was a revolution englightened philosophers did not plan. Many intelligent people of that were shocked what human nature is capable of.
