Who is this person and why is he or she described as a constitutional monarch? How did the person rise to power? What did the person accomplish as ruler? What challenges did he or she face as ruler? How did the person influence the nation?
Charles I was monarch of the three kingdoms of England, Scotland, and Ireland from 27 March 1625 until his execution in 1649. In 1628 he called a meeting a meeting of Parliament in 1628 so he could raise new taxes for wars against France and Spain, Parliament took the opportunity to limit some of the king's powers through a Petition of Rights. It decreed that the king could not use martial law to rule the country, raise taxes without Parliament's consent, or imprison people just to get them out of the way. This is what made Charles I a constitutional monarch. In 1640, Charles I dismissed the Parliament again, this resulting in a civil war between the Crown and Parliament in 1642.

Charles I was King of England, King of Scotland, and Kind of Ireland from March 27, 1625 until his death in 1649.
Yekaterina Alexeevna or Catherine II, also known as Catherine the Great, was the most renowned and the longest-ruling female leader of Russia, reigning from 1762 until her death in 1796 at the age of sixty-seven.
How were these rulers similar? How did they differ? Did one have more power than the other? How did the type of monarch each was affect their nation?
Catherine II, or Catherine the Great as she came to be called, was the Empress of Russia from 1762-1796. She was known for being the longest-ruling female leader in Russia. Catherine came into power after her husband, Peter III, was murdered. She was what is known as an absolute monarch because it was clear that she was the supreme ruler and held all the power. While in power, Catherine modernized Russia, making it a major European power. She also introduced reforms in areas like agriculture and education. Under her, Russia also gained territory and achieved military success.
These two rulers were very different. Other than the obvious difference in one being an absolute monarch and one being a constitutional monarch, they got into very different situations. Catherine led Russia into a better and more modern time, she was a very wise ruler that did good for her country even though she was an absolute monarch. Charles I on the other hand, only went into a constitutional monarchy to get
money and once he got it he dismissed the
parliament which led to a civil war between
the crown and Parliament.
