Ancient battles have existed throughtout ancient history. Historically these battles were due to gaining total power of an empire or fighting for the resources these ancient lands provided the people. They were both located near the Mediterranean sea, allowing both empires to have similar quantity in their empires. These two empires were great and powerful,ut Persian 's empire was stronger than Greece empire because it had a larger skillful military. One example was Cyrus the Great and the Rise of Persia during 550-522 B.C.E. Persia was founded by Cyrus the Great, one of most brillant and powerful king.
The Persian Empire An empire is an extensive group of states or countries under a single supreme authority, and that is exactly what the Persian Empire was during the ancient world. First, King Cyrus united two colossal tribes: the Medes and Persians to build the Persian Empire, also known as the Achaemenid Empire. Before Cyrus became the King of Persia, he grew to be a great leader. Conquering other great empires helped him build most of his great superpower.
All empires in history had a high in their history but they all eventually came to their demise. The Ottoman Empire and the Ming Dynasty both had ways they gained, consolidated and maintained their power while they were at their highest point. They had significant leaders that lead to these successful points.
The first thing Darius had to do, once he became king, was to amend his kingly site and to take out opposition among the other Persian royalty and nobility. According to Muhammad Abdoulkadyrovitch Dandamaev, the majority of scholars, at least until recently, were of the opinion that the information contained in the Behistun inscription of the Achaemenid king Darius I attest to the fact that the ancestors of Cyrus II, the founder of the empire, did not rule in Persis. About Darius, the text reports: “[...]my father is Vishtaspa; the father of Vishtaspa is Arshama; the father of Arshama was Ariaramna; the father of Ariaramna was Chishpish; the father of Chishpish was Achaemenes[….]Therefore we are called Achaemenids. From of old we are noble; from of old our lineage has been one of kings [….]
He allowed the Jewish people, who Babylon had captured to return home to Judea and reconstruct their temple. Cyrus also gave them the money back that had been taken from their temple. This did have benefits for Cyrus though, as the Jews believed that he had saved them, and remained loyal to the Persian Empire. Finally, Darius I was not as effective militarily as Cyrus II. World History in Context claims that “Darius did not bring to the empire the spectacular military successes of his predecessors.”
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.
The Qing, Mughal and Ottoman empires all had effective administration and victories that allowed them to advance. The Manchu, who ruled the Qing Dynasty, had to assert dominance to control the Chinese people living in the empire, who vastly outnumbered them. They successfully reoriented China after the rocky transfer of power following the previous empire, the Ming. The Manchu had “knowledge of Chinese administration” and a “well organized army” (Bingham, 134), which helped them effectively rule. They made Chinese men shave the front of their heads and wear their hair in long queues, or pony tails (Bingham, 136)” to show control. They made sure Manchu warriors didn’t lose their fighting edge in battle, which was a large part of their identity.
Throughout history, many impactful and memorable empires have arisen. Each empire has its own defining traits that lead to its success or demise. Some empires are very similar, while some posses many different traits. And although some can possess the same quality, their implication and utilization of that quality can create many gaps in the empire’s overall similarity to the other. Two powerful and historically important empires are the Ottoman empire, and the Mughal empire. The two empires share many traits, but they also differ in many ways. However, although similar, the Ottoman empire and Mughal empire are fundamentally different because of their view on religious tolerance, utilization of military successes, and women’s rights.
The Assyrian empire and the Persian empire were two of the earliest major empires in the world. The Assyrians came in to power first, ruling from 900 BC to about 600 BC and with the help of Cyrus the Great, the Persians rose to power around 550BC. The Assyrian and Persian militaries shared many similarities, but they also differed in some aspects. Some of their similarities include their battle tactics, the organization of their armies, and their success in conquering societies. One of the major differences that stood out the most was that the Assyrians used a more brutal approach when conquering and the Persians used a more enlighten approach and were more tolerant.
The Persian Empire was divided into into 20 satrapies. Each satrapie was ruled by a satrap. Satrap means “protector of the kingdom” so they basically protected the kingdom by supplying security and soldiers for armies. The Persians believed in a monotheistic religion called Zoroastrianism created by
Zoroastrians’ belief and view of God came from the revelations of Zoroastrian and Judaist view developed from God’s communication to Moses. Similarly, Christians’ view of God is shaped and defined by the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. In respect to a coming Savior, Judaists waited for the Messiah, Christians wait for Jesus, and Zoroastrians expected the Saoshyant. Even further, all the religions view the world to be in a constant battle between good and evil, and between God and the devil. From the Zoroastrians’ point of view, the Universe is literally a battlefield between Ahura Mazda, the one good God, and Ahriman, the separate spirit of Evil.
Czar Russia who needed to gain access to the seas during the winter months their river was frozen over, they were land locked.

The Holy Roman Empire consisted of multi-ethnic territories during the early medieval periods until its collapse in 1806 after the Napoleonic wars.

The Holy Roman Empire was centrally located in Europe and mainly occupied the present day Germany. Ancient Egypt was an old civilization found in the Northeastern Africa. The Ancient Egypt occupied the present country of Egypt. A comparison of political leadership and cultural achievements of the Holy Roman Empire and the Ancient Egypt is discussed below.
The importance of Zoroastrianism on Judaism has been that it has had a significant impact on the beliefs of Judaism. What is referred by this significant impact is that Zoroastrianism has influenced some of the beliefs held in Judaism For example, the Zoroastrian belief in the House of the Song and in the House of the Lie are similar to the beliefs that Judaism has in heaven and hell. Part of the reason that today we are able to find influences from Zoroastrianism in Judaism is because when the Jews were exiled by the Babylonian Empire the Jews fled into Mesopotamia where they first learned about this new religion. The knowledge of this new religion brought about influences in Judaism especially after the Jews were once again able to return to their homeland. Originally Angra Mainyu was the spirit that opposed Ahura Mazda (Wise Lord).
