He then set off and conquered Egypt, the Persian Empire, and won a hard battle against India before his troops forced him to return home. Alexander then died at the age of 32. Most people see Alexander as Great because he conquered a lot of land, built a massive empire, and was a military genius, but Alexander was not so great. Alexander the Great did not deserve his title as Great because he gained his power by fear, killed innocent
Alexander was given the nickname “Alexander the Great”, due to his success in his Greek empire. However, after taking a closer look at how Alexander maintained his empire and treated his troops, it is evident that he was vain, cruel, and disloyal, which proves that Alexander the Great was not truly great. Alexander proved many times over the course of his ruling that he was a vain and selfish leader. A map created by various sources in Document A shows the cities that he and his troops conquered from Macedonia to India. This may seem
Alexander III of Macedonia inherited an empire that included the kingdom of Macedonia and the city-states of Greece. He was a very cruel and harsh leader. Almost immediately, Alexander set out to conquer the Persian Empire. He achieved his dream when he was 30 but then died a few years later. Alexander is one of the most famous people in history.
He exemplified the ways of both a hero and a villain. However, it is my opinion that he is a villain. I believe this because he could be an extremely violent leader and because he never fully reigned over one of the places he conquered/ruled. He is a villain because he murdered thousands of people and soldiers from different nations. Alexander tortured many of his victims and then he killed them.
Alexander Hamilton was one of the most influential political figures of his time. Though he never attained the title of president, few other foundering fathers influenced our political system more than he did. He is the perfect example of the American dream, because he rose from nothing to become a major player in forming our government. Weather you love or hate him, it’s hard to deny the influence he had on America. Hamilton began life in less than happy conditions.
Alexander Hamilton is the man with his face on the ten dollar bill, but people know little else about him other than that. He is a Founding Father who receives very little acknowledgement for his work in shaping our country. He was often controversial and contradictory, and was one of the very few Founding Fathers to suggest a monarchial style for America’s newly birthed government. His foresight would become invaluable to our country, as his forward way of thinking depicts American culture in its modern state, perhaps more so than any other Founding Father had in mind. He was as controversial in death as he was in life, dying in a duel to Aaron Burr; the only Founding Father to die in such a fashion.
For example, some of the key aspects of extremely controlling monarchs is that there is only one ruler, you rule until you die, and that power gets passed down from generation to generation. Ivan the Terrible obtained his power not through his own hard work, but through his blood line. He ruled until he passed away, and Ivan was the only ruler. Another aspect of extremely controlling dictators is that they have complete control of society and government. At the very start of Ivan 's rule, he had two chairmen guide him in the right direction to show him how everything worked, but they were soon fired leaving Ivan the Terrible to make every decision on his own.
The Western Roman Empire fell in the year 476 A.D, there were many factors contributing to the fall of the Empire, such as unconcerned citizens, population, expansion, religion, economic, slave labor, and the military. In Document 1 it states that people gave up on the Roman Empire and didn’t believe it was worth saving. Citizens weren’t allowed to take part in politics and were excluded from their own army. The government slowly lost support which increased the level of government fraud. Also, population decline was a big factor to the fall of Rome; it had decreased from 1,000,000 people to 250,000.
The years of the 1930s were impactful for The United States forever. The Great Depression was the primary culprit of the change. During this time the economy hit an all time low and people were left with no, food, money, or hope. The decade impacted society in a negative way by leaving everybody poor.
