Massive public works projects going back to the Akkadian Empire helped facilitate the movement of military units and communication in order to maintain the vast territories conquered. However, the fall of the empire to Alexander the Great, by 330 B.C.E., was spectacular in its quickness. Perhaps this was the result of the decay that befalls all empires. As Cyrus the Great warned the Persians, the luxuries and wealth that comes from ruling a successful empire eventually leads to soft
Cyrus the Great was born around 580 to 590 B.C.E. Cyrus originally took over Medes, conquering and joining together Lydia, Cilicia, Croesus
The first Persian Empire, Achaemenid Empire, lasting from 550 BCE to 330 BCE, reached its height under ruler Cyrus the Great. At its peak, it encompassed Iraq and Iran, Syria, Israel, Anatolia, parts of Egypt, the Arabian Peninsula, a large portion of Central Asia, and Macedonia to the north of the classical Greek Empire. The tension between the Persians and Greek civilizations would eventually provoke Alexander the Great, whose conquest of Persia eventually ended the Achaemenid Empire.
The Ottoman Empire had been around for hundreds of years. However it began to weaken. The weakness was from the Ottomans struggle to modernize. Greece got its independence and Serbia was allowed to govern itself, two countries who were previously under the reign of the Ottoman Empire. Countries in Europe noticed the weakening Empire, however so did Russia. Russia and the Ottomans began a war. This war was called the Crimean war. France and Britain took the side of the Ottomans because they didn 't want Russia controlling that land. The Ottomans, Britain, and France won the war. However, after the war countries from mainly Europe, but also Asia began taking the Ottomans land. An Ottoman leader, Muhammad Ali broke away from the Ottoman Empire and began having his people harvest cotton. His grandson continued to modernize and helped the French with building the Suez Canal, which connected the Mediterranean to the Red Sea. However when they didn 't pay their debt to British banks, so the British took over the canal. The Suez Canal was very important because it allowed quicker access to different parts of Asia and Africa.
In 520 AD, the prophet and messenger Muhammad came to spread Allah's word, and his followers became the first Muslims. Islam spread rapidly and this was was due to the choices that the leaders made through cultural diffusion, strategy for the wage of war, and esteemed morals. When Muslim merchants would trade, they would also spread the culture of Islam. The strategic wage of war helped Islam uphold a strong empire. The desirable morals of the faith led people into becoming Muslim.
The Egyptian Middle Kingdom and Babylonia had many similarities related in geography. Despite this they also had numerous distinct differences. Fundamental similarities manifested as care for the people by the rulers which had recently developed in both societies. As the rulers were no longer concerned with only themselves, but the citizens as well. Both societies had military protection although Babylon organized and conquered the Fertile Crescent and later Egypt. Politically, both cultures respected the other as equals and engaged in trade. The Middle Kingdom acknowledged that they were no longer entirely in control of all resources. Socially writing was excellent between the two kingdoms. Under Hammurabi the Babylonians had a set of laws, and the Egyptians excelled at writing.
Hebrew civilization began in 1792 B.C when a mass of Hebrews departed from Egypt. Hebrews held major religious and moral contributions to future civilizations. Whereas many earlier religions were polytheistic, Hebrew religion was define by monotheism as supported by the third commandment in The Ten Commandments that states “You shall have no other gods before me.” In addition, The Ten Commandments are very different from Hammurabi’s Code in the fact that it did not focus on punishment. It emphasized justice and fairness as displayed in commandments 13-17 declaring “You shall not kill. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness against you neighbor. You shall not covert your neighbor’s house; you shall not cover your neighbor’s wife… or anything that is your neighbor’s.” These commandments are still very present in modern law and society proving that the morals that prohibit murder, adultery, thievery, lying, and etc. are a lasting contribution of The Ten Commandments. Moving on, Persian civilization became significant when one of the Persian kings, Cyrus II, began conquest of the Asia Minor in 550 B.C. Years later, the Persian Empire becomes an immensely dominant and powerful civilization due to its conquests. One of the achievements of the Persians was maintaining a vast empire which would require a vast
Ancient Rome left tremendous legacies such as technological advancements, religious beliefs and governmental structures that shaped the world today. The Romans conquered many territories and took on their cultures as well, in particular the Ancient Greek culture. Ancient Greek civilizations played a major role in the history and development of the Ancient Rome civilization. The Ancient Greeks influenced the social structure, religion and military strength of Ancient Rome. The Ancient Greeks’ renowned use of democracy influenced Ancient Rome’s government structure. The strong belief in Gods and oracles in Ancient Greek shaped the religion of Ancient Romans. The Spartan-like training and leadership style of Ancient Greek war heroes formed the
The Ancient Egyptian culture dates all the way back to 5500 BCE to the time where there were pharos that ruled the lands. Ancient Egypt is one of the very first recorded civilizations with a very distinct way of life. They have traditions that have been passed down and influenced other cultures around the world. The earliest records of Ancient Mesopotamia culture dates back to around 3100 BCE. Mesopotamia had four different empires that was included in it. Those four empires were Assyria, Akkadia, Sumer and Babylonia. The four of those empires were in the lands of what today is known as Iraq.
The Assyrians are a group of people that came from the northern part of Mesopotamia. Their flat, exposed land made them easy for other people to attack them. The empire lasted from about 850 B.C. to 612 B.C. It is believed that they may have developed their warlike behavior in response to invasions. Through constant warfare, Assyrian kings were able to eventually build an empire that stretched from east and north of the Tigris River all the way to central Egypt. The Assyrians were all in all, a powerful empire
Cyrus dreamed of building an even larger empire. He began in Asia Minor(now known as Turkey) where he went to war with the Kingdom
Due to the release of the two kingdoms the unification of the two Kingdoms was untied once more. Cyrus the Great’s humanity was also recognized in the Persian Empire. Solomon rebuilt homes, sent sacred objects and rebuilt the temple he destroyed for the Jews that were enslaved in Babylonia. This showed that The Persian Empire could be dominant and deadly but, also be humbled and caring. Cyrus the Great also allowed Greek culture to the East. At that time it was unheard of for any kingdom to allow Greek cultures to be performed in the East.
The Neo-Assyrian Empire was an Iron Age Mesopotamian empire, in existence between 911 and 609 BC. Following the reforms of Tiglath-Pileser III in the 8th century BC, Assyria emerged as the most powerful state of the Ancient Near East, eclipsing Babylonia and Egypt. The Neo-Assyrian Empire succeeded the Middle Assyrian period of the Late Bronze Age. During this period, Aramaic was also made an official language of the empire, alongside the Akkadian
Throughout history, many empires have gained power and then progressively lost power to only be seceded by another empire. It is a mystery what exactly makes an empire so successful, and there is also another difficulty to keep the citizens in line. The Qing and Mughal Empires were the last ruling dynasties of China and India, respectively. A few evident aspects that worked well with these dynasties were the usage of assimilation and religious tolerance. The two empires made sure to keep the old traditions of the previous empire while at the same time incorporating new ones. In addition, these empires also adjusted to the religions that were different from them. They did not particularly adopt the religion, but they tolerated different religious beliefs. Their decimation in power can be seen when they gradually started to shy away from these aspects that made them so powerful.
