Czar Peter the Great was an autocratic ruler of Russia. Meaning that he ruled with complete rule over his subjects, and he was titled as a modernizer of Russia. Peter the Great is respected for his actions when westernizing Russia, he made Russia diplomatic, military, political, commercial, scholastic, literary, and industrial. During his reign, Peter establishes many different policies, and he substantially reforms his country. Although, during Peter’s absolute reign he encounters a few negative occurrences.
Political integration between both empires had both similarities and differences, most notably being different with the ways they chose those to rule. In Imperial Rome, bureaucracy relied on local elites (landholders) and the middle-class citizens to control provinces. Imperial Rome was far less complex, compared to the bureaucracy of Han China. Many official positions within the government were bought or became hereditary through family wealth as opposed to earned by merit, due to this fact, the Roman bureaucracy often suffered from poor governance. One of the reasons the empire was so unified even
He concentrated on many areas including developing science and technology, encouraged trade, modernized the alphabet and produced the first newspaper in Russia. He was adored by many in Russia and especially in St. Petersburg. Although Peter the Great was a harsh man who inherited his titles through his father, who died at a young age where his leadership, education reform, military accomplishments and government reorganization to Russia certainly shows he deserved the title of “the Great”. As a young child and Tsar of Russia, Peter discovered the importance of knowledge and
Because of their experience in the Mexican American war, southern military commanders were able to more effectively lead troops. The casualty rate between the two sides remained to be in favour of the confederates, and In some cases, battle
Throughout history, warriors have played many vital roles in government. Warriors have been fighters, protectors, and at times political personnel. They have helped shape the structure of governments, protect and defeat empires, and help empires expand. Warrior Aristocracy helped ancient empires grow their armies, learn more efficient war tactics, and control their citizens and land. Being part of an army was a symbol of honor and those with such a high position could be heavily compensated.
If I had lived during the Classical Era, and could choose which civilization to live in, I would choose Ancient Persia, probably under the reign of Cyrus the Great. While all Classical Civilizations made great achievements and accomplishments, Persia, especially under Cyrus, had certain values and breakthroughs in law and civil rights that helped it stand out among its rivals. Cyrus the Great secured his vast Empire and its many peoples through encouraging cooperation.
(p.219) Feudal relationships usually linked wealthy people, such as landowners, who would afford the tools necessary to fight. These greater lords, provided protection and aid to lesser lords, called vassals; vassals in turn owned them payment or military service. Charlemagne’s empire encouraged this version of
The Christian church dominance was a massive part in the medieval times, it shaped the society. The church made the rules and influenced people to follow god. People who didn’t believe in god and followed other gods would have been converted or killed. The Christian church had the power, money and land, they dominated medieval Europe. People who followed God
The church would reinforce his authority and refer to him towards the people as the ‘Little Father’. The church was extremely influential in that era and ensured that peasants and working class, who were at the bottom of the classist system, were aware that challengers of the tsar were an insult to God. It was therefore hard to go against the Tsar, despite his rule being unfair to the poor. This leads on to Russia being hard to govern under tsarist rule due to autocracy. In his coronation speech in 1894, Tsar Nicholas said he will ‘uphold the principle of autocracy as firmly and unflinchingly as my late and unforgettable father’.
Also, if Martel’s army would have lost, Islam would have been and still be the dominant religion of Europe. The invention of Christianity is one of the largest and most influential inventions in history. The role of Christianity has been intertwined with the creation of the western civilization throughout history. Christianity has had many effects throughout history, but its most noticeable effects are through three themes: politics by diminishing the power of Roman authority, society by affecting the way Roman citizens live, and religion by stopping the progression of
A well-organized government and bureaucracy were vital to the smooth running of the large and culturally diverse empire. The sultan ruled as an absolute monarch, but the empire was divided into provinces ruled by governors. The sultan was also supported by a vast network of advisors, officials, and administrators who carried out the various duties of managing the empire. Showing a willingness to adapt different methods, the Ottomans used features from a mix of governmental systems to create their own form of rule, and they also allowed some local political and legal customs to continue to function. Given the diversity of the empire 's inhabitants, the Ottomans found it useful to divide populations into groups called millets, which were based
Since 1492, Spain recognized Christianity as its official religion because there was no distinction between Catholicism and Protestantism. Most of the Spanish population practiced Christianity due to Jews being banished and Muslims being converted. In 1517, the Protestant Reformation divided the Christian religion half - into Catholicism and Protestantism. Spain supported the Catholic religion, and they saw the New World as an opportunity to convert others to Catholicism. They believed that religion gave them the right to conquer new land, because they “came to serve God and to get rich, as all men wish to do,” which Bernal Diaz del Castillo said while working with Hernán Cortés in the conquest of Mexico.
Another implementation was the pushing of Russian Elite to imitate European fashions to conform to western styles. And to out an end to the seclusion of higher class Russian women, Peter required officials to have their wives accompany them to social gatherings at the capital, as well as directing nobles to educate their children. The difference of the modernization of Russia and Europe came with the rise of Peter the Great. Russia was no longer vied as a backward nation suck in medieval times, but as a dominant player in the balance of power in Europe. Peter buried himself into learning and acquiring skills in blacksmithing, shipbuilding, and war arts, which assisted in the building of Russia’s first Navy, which modernized the field of Naval power.
The Ottoman Empire was a very simple, but productive empire to be a part of back in the 1400s. Their religious tolerance was very productive into growing their empire while making money and building up their army. For example, if you were Muslim, and in the army, you didn’t have to pay taxes, but if you weren’t Muslim, you paid taxes and couldn’t be in the army, which made people feel safe while still keeping their home. The Ottoman Empire’s cultural blending came by capturing the cities of Mecca and Medina which were the Holiest cities, also they captured Cairo for a learning center.
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 Ottoman Empire covered parts of Asia, Europe and Africa controlled by their leader named Suleiman.
