Alexander tortured many of his victims and then he killed them. Another reason why he was a villain because he killed members of his family so that he would become the ultimate successor to the throne. This should never be how a king becomes the ruler of his kingdom, ever. Even though I believe that Alexander the Great is a villain, others may think he was a hero. They may think that because he had conquered so many other nations.
Amir was a right-winged extremist. Julius Caesar did not escape a fateful assassination either.

They led Caesar's assassination dubbing themselves “the liberators”(A&E Television Networks
In 1963, one of the greatest presidents of our time was shot and killed. John F. Kennedy was the 35th president of the United States of America. In his short life he was in the Navy and in the Senate, and served as the president (whitehouse). On November 22 Lee Harvey Oswald shot JFK, while he was riding in a parade (biography). The assassination of John F. Kennedy was unjust because he was a transformational leader, who wanted to make the world a better place for everyone; however others may have been scared and threatened of the change he was bringing.
He was the first president to openly defend the practice of replacing many of the officeholders. However, after the Peggy Eaton Affair Jackson he replaced his original appointed cabinet members. It appears there was corruption throughout his presidency with the Indian removal by using military action against them. His personal feud with Vice President Calhoun over nullification, tariffs, and gossip. In addition his misuse of presidential powers by destroying the Bank of the United States.
He says, “Whilst we by Antony are all enclosed”(JC.V.iii.8). He explains that their army is now surrounded by Antony’s. The conspirators underestimated Antony yet again, and it has led to the defeat of Cassius’ army. In conclusion, had the conspirators killed Antony along with Caesar, the outcome of the tyrannicide would have not been the defeat and death of the conspirators. Antony cleverly used his speech at Caesar’s funeral to increase support for his side.
He then set off and conquered Egypt, the Persian Empire, and won a hard battle against India before his troops forced him to return home. Alexander then died at the age of 32. Most people see Alexander as Great because he conquered a lot of land, built a massive empire, and was a military genius, but Alexander was not so great. Alexander the Great did not deserve his title as Great because he gained his power by fear, killed innocent
Julius Caesar started life in a family who already had a fair political standing. He quickly climbed the Roman political system, while gaining the people 's approval. Before Caesar was at his peak, he was taken hostage by Cilician Pirates. Caesar had many opportunities in life, but he decided to take them. Caesar was born on the 12 or 13 of July, 100 B.C.. His Parents, Gaius and Aurelia Caesar, were already a politically important family, because they belonged to the Marian faction.
He also was the leader of the Nationalist forces that overpowered the Spanish democratic republic in the Spanish Civil War.

Right after this, the country erupted into civil war and his father was poisoned and died. Augustus Caesar reacted quickly. He appointed Herod king of Judea and he returned to Judea with a large Roman army. Antigonus, who was the reigning client king of Judea, was removed from the throne. Herod, knowing that his Judaism was in question and wanting to strengthen his power, married Miriam who was a Hasmonean princess.
The Spanish then went on to kill and capture Incan soldiers and Atahualpa probably realised then that the Spanish were after gold and silver and were not there for peace. Atahualpa actually offered them rooms full of gold and silver as a ransom for them to let him go but sadly he was never granted his freedom and was eventually killed on August 29, 1533 (The Fall of the Inca Empire). After taking control of the city Cajamarca the Spanish went on to capture the capital, Cusco and there they picked Atahualpa's brother as the new Sapa Inca giving them a puppet that they could control to their will. The Spanish conquest was the breaking point for the empire because it completely destroyed the empire pushing it to its fall. However, there was still one factor that ruined the Inca empire but didn’t push it because it was a civil war between two brothers within the
