The first event was in 323 BC and is when Alexander the Great died and his generals fought for the empire. The Hellenistic Age is considered to start here, but for a little while war broke out through the empire. When the war was over all of the rulers were Greek. This caused the Hellenistic spread as I mentioned earlier. The second event is when Theocritus was born circa 300 BC.
The most important cause for internal Greece war was that Athens controlled everything. They were leading other city-states in the Delian League. They used the Delian League as their own empire. Next step, Athens attacked the Sparta’s ally. All causes were logical, Sparta destroyed Athens land, and then Athens surrounded to Sparta.
The conquests of Alexander the Great during the 4th century BC undoubtedly transformed the ancient world, bringing people of foreign lands into contact with Greek ideals and customs that spawned a unique Hellenistic period of both decaying and generative traditions. Despite the historical dramatization of Alexander, emphasizing his charisma and intellect as being the driving forces in creating an empire of a size that had never been imagined before, the contexts of cultural tension between Greek and Persian societies, a fractious Greek political state, and civil strife from an overpopulated Greek world greatly supplemented Alexander’s inherent traits in clearing a path for him to rise and embark on a path of conquest in the pursuit of eternal
Lastly, the both of them killed off all potential successors to the throne, even Alexander’s baby boy, Caranus. 2. How did Alexander the Great expand his empire following his rise to power? Alexander the Great expanded his empire following his rise to power because Alexander was a great conqueror of other lands. He conquered much of Asia as well as Egypt, Turkey, Greece and Persia.
The Athenians regarded the wars against Persia as their greatest and most characteristic moment. However The events that take place between the defeat of Darius constant tension with sparta would soon lead to the peloponnesian war. The battle of Marathon (490 BC), is definitely one of the greatest battles to affect greek history. Had the Athenians lost, all culture of what we may know of greece would be lost if it weren 't for Themistocles. Themistocles was the person who developed the most advanced weapon at its day.
Rome had begun in 750 BCE, as a peaceful, thriving settlement, until their government turned from a Republic into a dictatorship. Then, political strain started occurring in the heart of Rome. Roman leaders started focusing on using force instead of compromise to overtake land. Rome had started to get lazy, and was open for attack. Outside invaders infiltrated Rome, not completely destroying the empire, but destroying the city and heart of Rome.
This implement of skills was crucial to their success. Cornwallis, a highly motivated and experienced leader, was distraught when he heard of these brilliant tactics of Washington and his militias. The British Empire for the first time fell to its knees and even signed off on the breaking away of these colonies. The guerilla tactics were a key-fighting tactic that turned the war around. Guerilla warfare has been used through out history with both successful and non-successful out comes.
Furthermore they were extremely notorious for their fierce naval fleet and remarkable philosophers, however their greed and rapid power was inevitably their demise. The empire initially began in 479 BC, when the greek city states united in order to beat Persia, in the Persian War. Later on, Athens was assigned to command the fleet and therefore the entire Delian league. Before long, Athens controlled
The three men combined their resources, set aside their personal differences, and seized control of the state.” (Wasson) However, this was alliance weak. Crassus and Caesar saw that with his army, Pompey was the strongest in the group, which the other two sought to correct. To raise armies of their own, both Crassus and Caesar went on campaigns to further extend the boundaries of Rome’s Empire, while Pompey stayed in Rome. Crassus went to the Parthian Empire with the intentions of conquering it, however the Parthians got the better of him and killed him in 53 BCE. At the same time, Caesar went north to the Gauls in Europe, extending the empire to the Rhine River and the English Channel.
Based off of what is given in Herodotus the Histories, Lycurgus is first mentioned as the son of Aristolaides, and the leader of the people in the plains in Lacedaemonia whom form together with Megacles who controlled the coasts (HDT.1.59). Prior to the alleged kingship of Lycurgus, Lacedaemon/Sparta was in a political upheaval between a diarchy of Kings who could not agree upon anything, and therefore set limitations to the powers of the Kings.
