This showed Caesar as being a non-selfish and caring for the good of Rome man. However, Brutus’s honorablity outweighed Caesar’s. Brutus said “ I love the name of honor more than I fear death”(1.2.95-96). In this small phrase Brutus said he fears death without honor more than he fears death itself. This statement really makes the audience look at Brutus as this “son of Rome” type character.
As Julius Caesar stated, “If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it.” This quote from him shows what kind of person he was in his time. Julius Caesar was said to be an amazing ruler who would do anything he could for his empire, he was said to be able to show honesty, confidence, and that he was full of hope. According to multiple sources including “UNRV History”, Caesar was not as great as he was said to be. Before he was a ruler, he was just a man who had ideas.
Brutus in julius caesar was truly an honorable man in my opinion because, all he really wanted was the best for Rome;in other words Brutus is willing to do whatever it takes even if it means sacrificing others close to him to strengthen Rome. Also Brutus has the least amount of blame for the murder; he felt the most guilt about caesar 's death because he is visited by his ghost. Most characters in the play don 't act honorable and they only want Caesars death to benefit themselves. Like Brutus, my Grandfather is honorable;he was an army
Oedipus, however, was an ineffective leader compared to Churchill and Aeneas. He was honest to his people, but was rash in his decisions, and persistent in a negative way in front of his followers. Churchill led his country to victory in World War II, and Aeneas founded one of the greatest civilizations in all history. Oedipus was exiled from Thebes, and lived out his life as an old blind man., while Aeneas found greatness in his responsibility as an effective
Paulchaz did everything in his ability to ensure General Budo 's would be the most trusted and relied upon the reach pliable young emperor 's ear. Everything ran smoothly in the beginning. The part of him that was Captain Paulchaz rejoiced at the suffering and damage that he was able to spare the empire he had dedicated his life to serving.

The upbringing of Andrew Jackson and John Quincy Adams, were very different. Andrew Jackson’s parents were immigrants form Ireland who were forced to raise him in poverty, but through this Jackson learned very important lessons in hard work. The only schooling that Jackson received, was in a local elementary school and than later reading about law to become a lawyer. On the other hand, John Quincy Adams was born into a wealthy family, and his father was John Adams, a founding father of America.
He matches Aristotle’s definition of a tragic hero because of his fatal flaw. His tragic flaw was attempting to faithfully continue serving the "true" Emperor Marcos Aurelius, not considering the possible consequences he might have to face in order to return Rome to a Republic for the people. Captain John H. Miller was the captain of the American Army. He, like Maximus, does not give up very easily. Even though his mission is to save one man and risk many of his men, he presents a full effort to complete this mission no matter how senseless he believed it was.
Why was George Washington significance? A great man called George Washington once said “We should not look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors, and for the purpose of profiting by dearly bought experience.” George Washington was significance because he was a great leader. Also he helps win the revolution and he helps make peace with Britain.
Marius did not try to reach for the level of “silence” that his rival Sulla did nor did he go near the levels of future Emperors to rid them of the noise, Marius was not the source of the corruption in politics but he was a great helper to
His speech is designed to persuade the Plebeians that the murder of Caesar was very necessary. In Brutus's speech he talks about how him and Caesar loved each other and that it wasn't that "I loved Caesar less, but I loved Rome more." Meaning that him and Caesar shared a love for each other but Rome meant more to him then Caesar did. By telling the crowd that he loved Caesar it makes them think that he wasn't necessarily happy about the murdering of him but that he was glad it happened cause it was better for Rome.
The name Romulus Augustus references both the first king and the first emperor of Rome, who were beloved in the eyes of their subjects, and with a monumental name to live up to, it was unfeasible for Romulus Augustus to triumph in the Romans's eyes. Romulus Augustus's one year reign was extraordinarily underwhelming and lacking in any tremendous discoveries or conquests, and much of it was not recorded by historians. As one reflects back on the past Roman leaders, it is clear to see Romulus Augustus, although he indubitably affected Rome in its destruction, had no colossal achievement to put his family into a permanent place of nobility as his father had once outlined. Romulus was born in 463 AD and was the son of Orestes, a major general of the Roman army. Orestes was an assistant to Attila the Hun, but once he died Orestes joined the western army and climbed to a high position.
