Alexander the Great Alexander the Great, a powerful leader, is one of the most famous people in history. Alexander the Great was born in 356 BCE in a kingdom of Greece called Macedonia. Alexander inherited the kingdom at 20 years old when his father, King Philip, was assassinated. This left Alexander to conquer and expand his empire. (BGE) Was Alexander the Great really great?
He used his honorable position to launch a project his father had previously planned. The plan was called “Panhellenic project” and it was to lead the Greeks on a conquest to rule all of the land including Persia. He invaded the Achaemenid Empire in 334 BC,
After King Philip’s death, many countries under the control of Macedonia started to rebel and try to gain independence. Alexander quickly invaded Greece and showed that his authority would be respected. He then did the same thing to Thrace, establishing himself as an authority figure now known to all countries. Alexander then sought out to conquer all of Asia. At this time alexander was 22 years old.

His heroic figure that everyone cherished, and loved.

This essay will explore the apparent legacy that Columbus is celebrate and honored for, and whether or not all Americans should continue to honor Columbus Day. Christopher Columbus had always been glorified and honored for his adventurous voyages and for discovering that the Earth was round and not flat as was previously suggested. Columbus who was rejected by several European countries for nearly 10 years was eventually funded by the Spanish King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, Christopher had signed a deal anointing him as governor of any land he “discovered” and that he was allowed to keep 10% of any merchandise he found on the unknown lands. Columbus had now set out to find new territory in the Santa Maria with the Pinta together with the Nina. He arrived on an island by accident which is known to us as the Bahamas and claimed the land for Spain and named it San Salvador
Alexander the Great’s inexorable ten year conquest of the Persian Empire was a conquest motivated by a number of reasons; finance, revenge, opportunity, expansion and personal zealotry being amongst those debated by modern historians. In his attempts to garner Greek support for the conquest, Alexander veiled his true motivations under the guise of nationalistic revenge. In truth however, Alexander's reasons for the invasion of the Persian Empire lay in financial necessity, territorial expansion, his desire to stand up to his mythological and biological ancestry and the opportunity presented by the relatively weakened state of the Persian empire. 1. Revenge for the Persian invasions of Greece (281) Writing in the first-century BCE,
In Ancient India, the people named their flag after Asoka. He did great things for the Mauryan Empire that gave a good ending, but were the means of the ending just? Asoka ruled Ancient India and changed the history of it doing good and bad things for himself but for his empire. Was it being Ruthless or Enlightened? His responsibility for many deaths, his wanting of unfair wars, the unjust laws all clearly imply that Asoka is a Ruthless Conqueror.
The great irony surrounding Cassis throughout the story is that he uses his greatest asset to his fullest potential when he allows Brutus to take effective control of the republican faction. Cassius believes that his nobility of Rome are responsible for the government of Rome. They have allowed a man to gain too much power, way more than he needed, therefore, they have responsibility to stop him. Cassius absolutely hates Caesar, but he also deeply resents being subservient to a tyrant, and there are hints that he will have no trouble fighting for his personal freedom. Cassius does not back down following the almost dictatorial pronouncements of his equal, Brutus, even though he absolutely disagree heartedly with most of Brutus’s decisions.
The time of Manifest Destiny was a time of true American brotherhood and comradeship. With Andrew Jackson and James K. Polk being the leading presidents of the cause during this time, it not only led to continental expansion but homicide as well. While the Americans believed they were expanding into free land, Native Americans had already settled the land centuries earlier. This led to the dark side of Manifest Destiny. Native Americans were forced to pick up their homes and resettle in areas that were less than sufficient to meet their basic needs.

Chapters 20/21 Even though Christopher Columbus held onto his belief that he had reached the Indies until the day he died, the new continent he had actually reached had been the result of much geographical speculation and exploration by many curious men. “In some ways, these journeys of discovery collectively represent man’s most astounding characteristic: intellectual curiosity (Watson 424).” As Watson points out, we who live in the twenty-first century have nothing to compare to the feats accomplished by those early map makers and courageous adventurers. “The discovery of America was important intellectually for Europeans” yet many drawbacks soon followed as the New World was not as developed as the Old World (Watson 442).The lack of technology,
After looking at the hard facts it 's time to compare the rulers to each other! Alexander had one of the biggest impacts on young Greece and current Greece. Alexander defeated the “Persians”, Egyptians, and Mesopotamians gaining land all the while (Alexander the Great). While Alexander was on the Asian campaign “Greece enjoyed their period of peace” and prosperity (Alexander the Great).

Aristotle encouraged Alexander to become the king of all greeks. Aristotle giving Alexander encouragement could have been what drove him away from his father model. A famous example, Aristotle told Alexander to be “a leader to the Greeks and a despot to the barbarians, to look after the former as after friends and relatives, and to deal with the latter as with beasts or plants”. Alexander was taught by Aristotle for three years. Philip II summoned sixteen year old Alexander to serve as Regent of Macedonia and Master of royal Seal in Philip II’s absence.
