Yet all that time he had still been a loyal follower and leader in the making. He stays grateful and does whatever Beowulf last dying breaths wish for. “/Then he brought their treasure to Beowulf, and found/ His famous king bloody, gasping / For breath.” Lines (810-812). This shows that Wiglaf had one wish and that is to bask in the victory he’d won with his lord. In doing so he proved himself worthy.
He was considered the strongest man and he protected many people. He was not afraid of anything and he proved that multiple times. Many people called him a hero. Although some people think of Beowulf as their hero, I consider my dad a hero. He is always there for me no matter what.
Our history of out country developing was very, very rocky. It took a lot of courageous people with a strong belief in independence and freedom to break away from one of the most powerful countries in America at that time. Strong leaders are elected her fairly and under the direction of a Republic, where people vote for representatives to decide what is best for our country. Throughout our entire history, presidents have done their best to improve our country the best ways they think they can. Despite all of this, and despite the fact I think all of our past presidents we're great, the one I believe was the best was our president, Barack Obama.
Have you ever notice how people say “ The United States of America” like it was the best country in the whole world? I pretty much agree with that. People see the United States as if it was perfect, however, they never knew or know much about who are the heroes that helped our nation to be that perfect. One of is Abraham Lincoln, he was the 16th president of the United States and he is regarded one of America’s greatest hero due to his role as the Savior of the Union and emancipation of slaves. He helped the United States of America became united during the civil war, he also ended slavery, and lastly, he chose to lead his country into a better place and took the consequence of which is death.
Lebron is known currently as being the best at what he does and also as one of the greatest to ever do what he does for a living, whereas Harrison may also be known for being one of the best to stand up for his people and show that the government is not always right in every situation. Unfortunately though Harrison’s life was cut short because of the things he believed and the things he wanted to accomplish. Character is something that Harrison showed a lot of, and he never changed throughout the story. He had the same mind set and same plan
The first example of this was that King Arthur was not an ordinary person but he had no special ability over anyone else. The reason his story was made into a story is because he was such a great leader, and the story of how he came to be leader gave people hope and something to strive for. Everyone knows the story of King Arthur and the knights of the round table and it just goes to show you even after all these years King Arthur's story is still affecting modern life. It can be assumed that King Arthur was a great leader and very compelling one because he had so many loyal fighters with him at the last
Cyrus was a great leader that stood apart from all else. He is the man that historians call “the most amiable of conquerors,” and the first king to found “his empire on generosity” instead of violence and tyranny. I think that Cyrus the Great had an authentic leadership. He achieves highest position among all world leaders throughout the human history because of the following reasons: He had high moral and ethical values, He created Persian Empire based on moral principles, Expanded the Ethical Empire to include all men who wish to join it, Freedoms of religion, job, and place of residency; being advocate of freedom of choice 2500 years ago is highly venerable, lastly, He was tolerant of local religions and local customs, just to name a few.
Odysseus and his son Telemachus are very similar to each other. Odysseus has always been an honored hero and Telemachus became a great warrior too. “Good blood runs in you, dear boy, your words are proof,” Menelaus says to Telemachus in book 4. All of Odysseus’ old friends knew his son would grow up to be like his father naturally even without meeting him.
There have been lots of great military commanders over the centuries, but one of the best ever and definitely the best in European history is Julius Caesar. The greatest military commander must have smart strategies and use their power to grow and conquer. On July 12 or 13, 100 B.C., in Rome, Italy, Caesar was born (Nice). Being a descendant of the Trojan Prince, Aeneas, he grew up to be full of himself (Nice). Though Caesar was egotistical, he was the greatest military commander in European history because his military IQ was astounding, he cared for and fought beside his men, and he also expanded the Roman Empire to its greatest lengths.
We link the word honor to power because of all those great accomplishments that person has completed in their lifetime. Such as an example is Abraham Lincoln. He abolished slavery, while he was the president. America views him as a very honorable man because until his assassination, he fought for what he believed and what he knew was right for all of America. We have even slapped a nickname to this great American, Honest Abe.
