When did government leaders like kings and Presidents stop leading troops on the actual battlefield?
what kind of government can a king run ? monarchy The need for Heads of State/Government to be physically present at battles as leaders declined as States became larger, more sophisticated and more complex. Once it got the point where it was more important for a ruler to be an able governor and… diplomat than general and fighter, many rulers stopped endangering themselves (and often their country) by being physically present on the battlefield. Also, countries and armies became so large and far-flung it was not possible for a ruler to govern effectively AND lead their forces into battle. I cannot give an exact date as to the last time, but I believe it to be in the mid- to late-19th Century. The last British King to lead an army in a battle was King George II in 1743, but Napoleon Bonaparte at the beginning of the 19th Century led his armies to battle. Whether he was the last I cannot say. All the information above is relevant to Europe only. (MORE)

It had always been assumed that you should not be president for more than 8 years (2 terms), as that is what Washington did when he decided not to pursue a third term. However, after FDR was elected to a 4th term, it was decided to make this unwritten rule into a written one. FDR's extreme left poli…cies show just how far it can go, so the term limit is now in effect to keep the presidency changing on a regular basis. (MORE)

France has had to learn to remain a world power, in name only. France had continuously come out on the losing end with it's lengthy wars with Great Britain, was defeated in it's war with Prussia in 1871, and was nearly beaten during WW1; and was only saved by Britain and the US's entry into the war.… France was beaten, and occupied by Germany in WW2. Being only a "figurehead" of surviving French leadership living in Great Britain during WW2.. After WW2, France again was only a figurehead as a world power; possessing nuclear weapons and modern military equipment, yet losing nearly every, if not all, military campaigns that it participated in.. France, like Italy, is a nation that thrives in a Mediterranean climate and atmosphere; and is accustomed to fine art, foods, wines, and beautifully designed cars, homes, warplanes, warships, military uniforms, and some excellent armored vehicles. But when it comes to war; it's been said "...that some men make better coaches than football players..." (MORE)

No. A Democracy or a Republic is not affected by political parties (even though the names do sound similar to the main political parties in America). Anyway, America has a Republic form of government, which means that people elect government officials, such as Senators, to vote on issues. Being a D…emocrat or a Republican would not affect this.

Historically, the kings of France ruled in a thoroughly autocratic fashion and proved unable to accede democratic norms and human rights for their subjects. As a result, the French people revolted at least five times between 1780-1880 and decided that the best way to ensure their rights was to make …sure that a king was completely out of the picture. However, there are some who desire the return of the monarchy, called Monarchists and they usually represent between 1-5% of the French vote. Louis XX is the current Bourbon pretender to the throne. The Monarchists, though, are commonly seen as a joke by the rest of the French electorate. (MORE)

The founders' fundamental aim was to preventabsolute control of society by an all-powerful central authority --of whatever kind. (MORE)

What about the relationship between president and vice president has changed since the ealiest days of the US government?
In the earliest days, the vice-president was the man who got the second most votes for president- in other words, a rival of the president if not an actual opponent. This situation was fixed by the 12th amendment of 1803-1804 so that now the president and VP run as a team from the same party.
Nowhere in the Christian Greek scriptures does it tell Christians to change the government (John 18:36), however, we are to pray for GOD'S Kingdom ( Matthew 6:9-10 ).

Theoretically, the government can change anything, but it has to have support of a majority in the House of Commons, and the House of Lords for things to be passed. The Monarchy can't actually stop the Government from doing anything- this would cause a constitutional crisis, because the Monarchy is …supposed to be above politics, and the people did not vote for the Monarchy. Also the Lords can be bypassed, if they reject a bill three times and it has a majority in the Commons. E.g., the Fox hunting Bill. So, basically anythig, provided that there is enough support for it in the Commons. If the people didn't like it, they would probably rebel, which I suppose might cause the Government to change it back, but this SHOULD never happen, because the Mps are meant to reprisent the views of the people. However, it does all of the time, e.g., student riots over university fees was still passed despite masses of people not supporting it. But I guess that's the laissez faire Tories for you!! (MORE)

Historically, presidents have tried to assert their power, and some were more successful than others. By many accounts, George W. Bush was very successful at expanding the power of the presidency, whereas Jimmy Carter was not. But while some presidents are more effective than others, the American sy…stem of government provides checks and balances; this means that the executive branch (the president) will be unable to become too powerful (like a king or queen), since the president must answer to the congress, which is still responsible for making the laws. Even when the congress and the president are from the same party, there is a limit to what the executive branch can do without the approval and participation of the congress. On the other hand, if your question is motivated by concern that the current president, Barack Obama, is going to change our system of government, that is a myth spread by his political opponents, and there is no objective evidence to support it. Whichever party is in power, the other party always makes such accusations. But it is very difficult for any president, Republican or Democratic, to change the entire system of government, since the Constitution is very clear about how our government is set up. (MORE)

On 17 June 1789 the Third Estate (lowest house) of the States-General, which had been convened in Versailles six weeks earlier, declared itself, against the King's wishes, to be the "National Assembly" and set about drawing up a new constitution for the kingdom. It dissolved itself at the end of Sep…tember 1791 after the King had sworn an oath of loyalty to the new constitution on the 14th of that month. The legislative assembly, which also held executive powers, in the early years (1792-95) of the First French Republic was known as the "National Convention". Note that the name National Assembly was not used again in France (except for a short-lived "National Constituent Assembly" during the 1848 Revolution) until 1946. So the short answer is: 1792 -- although the revolution had begun three years earlier. (MORE)
