    In this sentence гуманному правлению it's in dative case. Shouldn't it be in genitive case since
    it's after более?

    'Но снизила налоги и положила начало более гуманному правлению.'

    Thanks for your answers

  2. Hello,
    The sentence is correct, as the word combination "положить начало" requires the object to be in dative case ("положить начало (чему?)"), and "более" is used to show the comparative degree of the adjective "гуманному".
    Hope, it will help you.
