Political leaders naturally have ambition but leaders like Napoleon and Adolf Hitler gained too much ambition that eventually led to their downfall. In february of 1807 the battle of eylau took place between Russia and France, it eventually led to negotiations between them on the island of tilsit. I got my quote from the article DISCovering Biography, “his ambition seemed limitless but he was not omnipotent”. At this point napoleon had endless ambition and drive, he defeated European power after European power, rearranged the map and enforced french dominance. Nevertheless he was not all powerful , he still had to take control of England.
The first of my family to come to Nebraska were John and Scarlett Reinhardt (my dad’s Family), Peter and Ana Carl (My grandma’s maiden family), along with Anthony and Margret Hoffman (My mom’s maiden family). John and Scarlett were Germans who lived in Russia. Around the late 1800’s there was a new leadership in Russia which caused them to leave. They met each other on their voyage to America. They came to work in the sugar beet fields of Nebraska.
In this letter we are able to look at the past and see more than just the history, we can appreciate how the people felt at those times of unfairness. This letter in particular makes you understand not all of Germany was with Hitler or the Nazi party. How one of the closest relatives of the leader of Germany, didn’t share his ideas and rather oppose them. I found the letter amazing for many reasons among them the story of William Patrick Hitler of standing up against one of the most dangerous leaders in the world, and the historic richness the letter
Also, Piper lived in Germany for three years where he saw the lasting impact the Nazis had and how they wanted to build the “master race.” He taught at Bethel College but took a pastoral job at Bethlehem Baptist Church. He lives in the Phillips neighborhood which is the most diverse part of Minneapolis. He also adopted a young African American girl with his wife. With all this said, it is easy to see how John Piper is the best man to write a book on race and Christianity.
Otto von Bismarck was born in Schönhausen, Germany on April 1, 1815. He was born into a family of Junkers, the nobility of Prussia at the time. At an early age, he was sent off to Berlin where he studied law and served in the government starting in 1836. After a year, he lost interest in his government position, quit, and then took care of his family estate. It was around this time that he married Johanna von Puttkamer.
If they choose not to do so then they will be punished with great consequences. The people around the king would only speak if they had something of greatness to say otherwise wouldn’t speak because they feared their king. Alexander the Great also knows as the son of Zeus would wear the most valuable attire that only gods would wear. With his great accomplishments in the battle field and the role of a king he was respected and feared by his people. There were many different kings in the ancient world and all of them had different ideas, morals, and values.
His son Louis the Pious did rule until 840, but his three sons would then divide the Kingdom into three, definitely ending the Carolingian unity (Alcock, 2002). Some authors claim that some of Charlemagne’s influence would still live on, beyond his Empire (Tierney & Painter, 1992, Delanty, 2013, Dawson, 1946), others believe it is better described as the end to an era (Barraclough, 1963, Mikkeli, 1998). Tierney & Painter (1992) argue, as mentioned before, that the ‘fusion’ of cultures would surpass the actual Empire, it would live on. They argue that after its downfall it laid the base for certain medieval institutions that spread around Europe, like feudalism. Delanty (2013) agrees, also putting emphasize on feudalism as a unifying factor in Europe and saying that the Franks can be seen as the creators of Europe in the making, an ‘embryonic Europe’.
This period in the history of Europe had a lot of political power plays and a powerful Roman Catholic Church that had controlling relationships with the leaders of countries and the people. The Church led by the Pope held power unchecked by its members. “Luther’s meteoric rise to celebrity transformed a sleepy nowhere into a center of the German printing world. Pettegree, one of the leading historians of print culture, tells us in this beautifully crafted book how printing created Martin Luther and the Reformation, an event he rightly regards as having changed the course of Western culture. The twist in the tale, however, lies in the fact that Luther was a canny innovator who understood well the potential and value of the printing
This is similar to the way that he used his intelligence to lead his troops and accomplish the defeat of the Persian
When it comes to the Henderson family name there are rumors of the Indian heritage being all in the blood line. Tracing the name back to Germany, England, and Scotland in the 17th Century the rumor was proven to be wrong. Ancestors of the Henderson’s do have historical significance in Texas where Peter Whetstone co-founded the town of Marshall, fought in the Texas Revolution, and also the Regulator-Moderator War. The Whetstone name originates from the German name Wetzstein and evolved to the English form after Heinrich Peter Wetzstein when his family emigrated to America in 1732.
His response on this was, “Being the President of the most powerful country in the world is not easy, especially during the WWI. We declared war on Germany on April 6, 1917, which led to the United States taking part in the WWI and helping the Allies win the war.” Except getting known for his leadership during the war, Wilson was also known for his attempt to establish the League of Nations and the “Fourteen Points” which he proposed during the Paris Peace Conference as the basis for peace treaty. Woodrow Wilson also talked about his famous myth of being described as the world’s most overburdened person saying, “It is true that being the President of the United States is not easy and you have to carry the load of not only the U.S. but every country in the world and also your day is full and you have to work every minute.
