Julius Caesar proved that he was one of the greatest Romans to be apart of Rome and with his military strategies that led him to conquer most of Gaul and parks of England, this shows that he was a true genius. The way that he was able to manipulate the government so he would win his election is just so elegant.

Augustus Caesar, often referred to as the creator of the Roman Empire, was Rome’s first emperor, and arguably its greatest one. Although his relationship with each varied, he understood the importance of gaining the support of the military, the senate, and the people. He rose to power and maintained his power as a result of this ability. During his lengthy reign, he oversaw the transformation of the political and religious institutions, economy, administration, and army of the fragile Roman Republic into those of the Roman Empire (Mellor 6). In addition to a sense of humor, Augustus possessed intelligence, ruthlessness, and political savvy— traits which enabled him to craftily legitimize his autocratic rule under the forms of traditional republican law, and establish the legal, political, and cultural foundations for an empire that would persist for the next 1500 years.
During his life, did Alexander show enough leadership, courage, and concern for others to be considered great? By these measures, Alexander was great for at least three reasons: military genius, inspiring leader, and spread of Greek cultures.

Napoleon also, was a skilled military leader and became the first emperor of France. Napoleon was a French leader whom quickly rose through the ranks of military during the French revolution and drove his military to expansion and change in the western world. Although they cannot be compared in every way because Napoleon twice relinquished his authority in military leadership, in which Alexander would not have even dreamt of doing. SECTION IV: Alexander the Great should be placed in a time capsule because of his outstanding and notable achievements of brilliant commands and undefeatable battles.

Who needs a hero? Throughout human existence, societies have always looked upon heroes and champions as a gleam of hope in times of desperation. “Like a champion, like a warrior he will stir up his zeal; with a shout he will raise the battle cry and will triumph over his enemies.” In the Odyssey by Homer the main character Odysseus displays many of the great qualities that define a hero and thus forevermore he has been remembered, honored, and reverend by multitudes as an epic hero. Odysseus’s courageous leadership in time of war, his volatile journey home, his strengths and his flaws, have made him immortal for generations to come. What defines an epic hero?

Constantine the Great is one of the most prominent figures of the ancient world who has dramatically influenced the history of the modern world. Constantine’s triumph of political dominance of his time, led to the success of Christianity rising as the dominant religion in the Roman word, and perhaps the modern world. Constantine was the son of Helena and Constantius. In 289 AD, the western emperor chose Constantius to serve him. Constantius and Galerius were promoted to Caesar and eventually to Augusti.
There are many things we can learn from these two men who were heroes in their individual countries. Let me introduce to you two extremely extraordinary men, Julius Caesar from Rome, Italy and Yitzhak Rabin from Israel. Julius Caesar is remembered as one of the most honorable military minds ever and is also known for laying the foundation for the Roman Empire. His birth and contribution to this world allowed him to create a new chapter in the Roman history. Caesar battled in many wars and was also involved in Roman politics.
Julius Caesar was born in Rome on July 12 or 13, 100 BC. Julius Caesar expanded the Roman Republic through battles across Europe before he became a dictator during the end of the Roman Empire.

There are not many people who have changed the course of history for their country and brought a new hope and dynasty to them in short years of rule. Julius Caesar helped form the First Triumvirate and worked his way up to dictatorship. He brought greatness to the civilization of Rome and gave the people a leader that they would go on to love and be remembered forever. He was a great leader of the Roman Republic who innovated to the Roman Empire by greatly capturing other lands and spreading the culture there establishing its imperial system.

Although there are five emperors, I compare Augustus Ceasar to Marcus Arelius. They both had lots of achievements for their empire, which made them unforgettable. Marcus Arelius was a very successful man leading the Roman Army to a victory against the Parthian Empire in the eastern part of Central Europe. While fighting and defeating many other rulers he accomplished in the Marcomannic Wars. As same with Augustus Ceaser, he also had many wars that he was successful in.
Alexander v.s. Alexis, Power Hungry or Ill Witted Alexander the great, undefeated, but when put into question does he hold up against competition. Alexander the Great was a superior military leader, conquering almost al l of the Eastern continent and was undefeated the whole time.Alexis tsipras just recently resigned from office after what is said to be one of the worst terms in Greece 's history. Alexander the Great is a superior leader based on the fact that he gave the people great rich lives during his rule. Alexander the Great was a great military leader along with his life and legacy.
Alexander’s military brilliance was unquestionable. He was a leader invincible in both, siege warfare and set battles. In addition to that, his intelligence and communications skills were immaculate. The Roman historian Arrian, in his account Alexander Puts Down a Mutiny, explains Alexander’s ability of communication and leadership skills, “[M]arching out from a country too poor to maintain you decently, [I] laid open for you at a blow, and in spite of Persia’s naval supremacy, the gates of the Hellespont. My cavalry crushed the satraps of Darius, and I added all Ionia and Aeolia, the two Phrygias and Lydia to your empire….
This proved his worthiness to being ruler by justifying his abilities to provide for and protect his empire. Since the Romans did not like that title of king, “he received the title Augustus by decree of the senate.” During his reign, Caesar accomplish countless things, which is why he is still talked highly about to this day. He repaired the conduits of aqueducts, dozens of temples, and completed the Julian forum and the basilica. He did these things because, like Qin, he loved and truly cared about his empire and wanted to see it flourish and restored; not broken and destroyed. His political authority grew stronger as the years went on therefore, he “attained supreme power by universal consent.” He did this by gaining the peoples respect.
Rome is primarily popular for their incredible achievements and superiority during the Roman Empire. Alexander the Great created a policy of Hellenization and established a world in which it has been incredibly easy for Christianity to spread. Alexander could give a speech before a group of people and they reacted in a way that was explosive, allowing an opportunity for the commands of Alexander the Great to move feverishly. In the society of the first Christians, the external forms of government and management of business along with their staff consisted of those of the Roman Empire. Its cultural roots are surrounded in a different world overall.
