Egypt 's army at that time was 100,000 people strong and with that army he conquered many people that had taken Egypt land from previous pharaohs. Ramses managed to fend off full force attacks from the Hittites and Nubian 's. Ramses restored Egypt to what it had been before and made peace treaties that they had been at war with for years. Ramses was able to do all of this military impact in his first 20 years as pharaoh. From this, we can conclude that King Ramses the ll was indeed a great man. Now why should you care?
They also wore arm pads and a plate to cover their back. While they had weapons and strategies, their soldiers were the most important asset to their military because they protected the land and the empire. Ancient Roman military was the most successful and powerful military in history. Ancient Roman soldiers also used a variety of weapons, including a
“Sparta is famous for its advances in military strategy and strong military might, closely matching its patron god” (Landrum). This says that the Greeks had military advancements. The US has military advancements too. “The trireme was a light wooden ship, highly manoeuvrable and fitted with a bronze battering ram at the bow which could disable enemy vessels. Thirty-five metres long and with a 5 metre beam, some 170 rowers (thetes - drawn from the poorer classes) sitting on three levels could propel the ship up to a speed of 9 knots” (Cartwright).
Alexander the Great fought for many years and it paid off. “He marched for 11 years over 22,000 miles and never lost a battle…” (Smith 1). If Alexander had not been king the Macedonian Army would not have made it as far in battle, another king would not have had the same battle structure and training to do the same thing Alexander did.
As the Roman Republic and Empire ruled over much of the Mediterranean, Europe and even portions of Africa, for hundreds of years, we can only wonder how an Empire so large, powerful and advanced beyond its years could have had as much of a presence as they did for such a long period of time. The impact of slavery within Ancient Rome I think was the main reason for its incredible success. Between the sheer numbers of slaves the Romans had, the techniques in which they went about acquiring slaves, and the labor in which the slaves endured, are all direct correlations to the sustained success that the Roman Empire had for such as long period of time. Roman slaves were not just people of other races or ethnicity in any stretch of the imagination.
Historians have been able to learn a lot about the Roman government. Two common themes in Cicero’s writings were “duty to country” and “duty to man.” Throughout his career, Cicero delivered over 100 speeches on topics including philosophy, rhetoric, ethics, law and religion. Many were written in the Latin language of which Cicero was a master. The texts of fifty-seven of these speeches has survived.
For decades people have been wondering if the Han dynasty was effective or not. The Han dynasty was the dynasty after the Qin dynasty. Unlike the Qin dynasty that only ruled a short time of fourteen years, the Han dynasty ruled over four hundred years. So with the evidence that I have read, I believe that the Han dynasty was an effective government for a number of reasons.
Therefore, because of these laws and the consistency they provided, the unification of the Roman Empire was achieved. Within the Roman Empire most of the Roman military was made up of citizen soldiers(soldiers that were citizens of Rome) because they were thought to be the best at defending the Empire, or conquering land to expand the borders of the Empire. In addition, women were responsible for the ownership of small shops, certain businesses, as well as large shipyards. Although both men and women were citizens according to the Roman government, only men were able to vote. Another right for citizens of Rome was marriage.
How was Roman culture an example of cultural diffusion at its best? I believe the Roman culture was the best example of cultural diffusion because of the massive amount of people going in and out of the country. Without this amount of people entering and exiting the country there would no diffusion. In other words, without anyone leaving and entering the country there would be no way for these traits and ideas of the Roman society to spread across the rest of the world. With all countries diffusion is very important.
Various boards of officials also existed to make administrative decisions; members of these were usually taken from each of the ten traditional tribes. public positions were dominated by the wealthier citizens because positions of power needed to have and do financial layout to fund municipal projects such as ship building and festivals. Sparta had two kings coming from separate royal families and the most important state officials were the five ephors that used to hold office for only one year and they had power over most areas of civic life and they could appoint and check on all the other public officials. And then there were the council of 9* elders called the Gerousia. Military commanders also held public office in some city-states as In Athens, there was a board of ten elected generals, called “ Strategoi” who could influence the agenda of the assembly.
Julius Caesar was very important because he helped Rome accomplish victory in many battle and wars, which include the conquest of Gaul and the Roman civil war when Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon. The conquest of Gaul was shortly after Caesar became governor of Gaul. Gaul was the area of land, which was south of the Alps and to the east of the Apennine mountains to as far as the Rubicon River. At the start it wasn’t even Caesar 's plan to capture Gaul, but the country Rumania, which was a country rich with precious metals. So Caesar looked forwards towards conquering the lands north of Italy, which made his first task putting together an army.
His mean income over 25 years would be 54,400 dollars per year. 54,400 over 25 years is 1.36 million dollars. With the military when listed about you get 50 percent of your last pay plus 2.5 percent for every additional year after 20 years served. He would be earning 62.5 percent of the 90,320 dollars a year for the rest of his life. This is 56,450 dollars a year, now doing this for the next 12 years minus the cost of living would give us 435,072 dollars.
The second day ranks the 10th bloodiest battle of the Civil War. There was 120 Generals at the Battle of Gettysburg which is the most generals involved in a Civil War battles . Nine out of 120 Generals died or were wounded. Little Round Top is more popular today then Culp’s Hill and Cemetery Hill but less important because they protected the Union
Parker Evans Mrs. Fowler History 9 12 April 2016 Compare the reigns of 3 political leaders from Ancient Greece, Rome and Persia The reigns of Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, and Cyrus the Great all had a huge impact on the countries they ruled and on history. Many of their legacies still live on and are taught today. Alexander’s greatest achievement was conquering Persia, Egypt, Syria, Mesopotamia, Bactria, and the Punjab; he then founded a city in Egypt and named it Alexandria. Caesar’s greatest achievement was that not once in his lifetime did he lose a war.
