76 Nevertheless, in the case of Ireland there was also a strong political movement at the same time as the literary revival, the aim of which for most people was Home Rule. Three Home Rule Bills would be introduced into the British House of Commons – in 1886, 1893 and 1912 – but only the last succeeded in being adopted. In Ireland the most vehement opponents of these bills were the Protestants in Ulster, descendants of the 1609 Plantation who were a majority there and believed that Home Rule would be but the first step to an independent Catholic-dominated Ireland separate from the United Kingdom.

True, the Great Powers had the right under the Congress of Berlin to intervene individually but there was nothing about collective intervention. This merely exposed a further weakness. The political rivalry of the Great Powers would make it almost impossible to carry out action to enforce obligations. One of the most shameful evasions of obligations involved Romania.

Edward I of England may have conquered Wales in 1282 but the country remained only very loosely attached to England until the 1536 Act of Union passed by Henry VIII whose Tudor dynasty was Welsh. 51 One result of the Act was that English was declared the only official language. With a Welsh Tudor dynasty in London it was not surprising that the Welsh élite would, like that of the Scots three-quarters of a century later, take the high road to London. Nevertheless the Welsh language continued to flourish, thanks to religion.
