A man who stood about 6 feet tall with teeth made of wood and hippopotamus ivory does not even begin to describe the extraordinary man who is George Washington. George Washington, the father of the United States, was the first President of the USA and served as president from 1789 to 1797. He is aptly called the father of his nation due to his key role in the formation of the United States. Many look up to George Washington due to his various accomplishments throughout his life. Winning the Revolutionary War, becoming the first President of the United States, and shaping the way the Constitution was written and how the federal government was formed are all extraordinary accomplishments for any man, especially one who did not go to college. As one of the founding father, Washington learned valuable skills as a young boy, became a war hero, and set the standard for future leaders of the United States.
Ancient Egypt was ruled by a person called a Pharaoh. These Pharaohs were like kings and emperors. The Pharaoh in ancient Egypt was the political and religious leader of the people. They were about 170 pharaohs and they ruled from 3150BCE to about 31BCE. Out of 170 pharaohs, they were a few of them who stand out because of their accomplishment. A few pharaohs who stand out are Ramses II, Khufu, Hatshepsut, Akhenaten, and Senusret I. While these pharaohs were alive they contributed to their people by building pyramids, temples, sculptures, and creating literature. King Tutankhamun stands above the pack and is considered today by the majority of people as being the most famous and most well recognized Egyptian Pharaoh.

One supporting detail proving her leadership was she acted as regent,” an adult who can take control of the country.” Another detail to support her leadership was in paragraph eleven,” She appointed officials and advisors dealt with priests.” This quote explains that Hatshepsut was a great regent who tackled obstacles head on and with a lot of maturity. Another detail about Hatshepsut's successful reign was in paragraph 17 it states,”Hatshepsut reign was peaceful.

In addition in paragraph 14 it states,” So the people of egypt would take her seroucly she made herself look like a man in her role as pharaoh.” This quote shows the determination of hatshepsut and that she
The antebellum period took place before the civil war.

In “Hatshepsut: His Majesty, Herself,” by Catherine Andronik, she informs the reader about Hatshepsut and her role as an effective female pharaoh in ancient Egypt. One supporting detail of her effective rule of Egypt is that she was a regent who became pharaoh. In paragraph eight, the author states, “Until Tuthmosis III was mature enough to be crowned pharaoh what Egypt needed was a regent, an adult who could take control of the country.” Another supporting detail that is in paragraph eleven, the author states,”As Hatshepsut settled into her role as regent, she gradually took on more and more of the royal decision-making.” Hatshepsut was more experienced then Tuthmosis because she had been training for it and made all of the decisions for Egypt. In paragraph eleven, the author states, “She appointed officials and advisors; dealt with the priests; appeared in public ceremonies first behind, then beside, and eventually in front of her nephew.” The
There are many well-known Ancient Egyptian pharaohs, but one of the most popular is Ramses II. This isn't really surprising because he had accomplished a lot of things during his time. He also had an unusually long reign — he was in power for 67 years — which not only earned him recognition but also turned him into a god. (Egyptian pharaohs became gods if they stayed in power for 30 years.)
There has been many great presidents in office throughout the years. One stood out in particular. This president led the colonial forces to victory over the British and became a hero. In 1787, he was elected president of the convention that wrote the U.S constitution. Being the president of the United States is a huge honor, but also a tremendous job. It can be hard and very stressful. This person carries the lives of many in his hands. Imagine being the first president. George Washington, a well-respected man in the colonies, fought diligently for his beliefs in America’s freedom, and was unanimously chosen as the first president of the United States.
In 1479 B.C.E. Thutmose II passed the power of Pharaoh to co-ruler Hatshepsut-his sister/wife-because his son, Thutmose III, was too young. During her reign, she proved she was worthy by becoming one of the “most ambitious builders in Egyptian history” (Cole and Symes 34). However, after ruling for 21 years her legacy was tested. Scholars found defaced statues and portraits of Hatshepsut. Some believed Thutmose III was slighted by Hatshepsut and he defaced her image. Although, through more research they believed Thutmose III’s son, Amenhotep II, had more motivation. Hatshepsut’s image may have been defaced because of lack of knowledge in hieroglyphs, gender roles, and the hope for power.
To a great extent Hatshepsut was a successful ruler as she was able to ensure Egypt remained prosperous and stable during her reign while also consolidating her power through foreign policy, building programs and religious reform. Hatshepsut’s foreign policy was a major achievement that made her a successful ruler as her expedition to punt and her minor military campaigns were important to the stability and economy of Egypt. Hatshepsut was a greatly successful ruler because of her building programs and building policies which were important religiously and politically and were innovative for the time. Hatshepsut’s religious policy was also of great success as she was able to both consolidate her power and increase the influence of the priesthood
In ancient Egypt, the esteemed pharaoh Thutmose III is known as one of the greatest kings of Egypt. However, even with his many incredible accomplishments, he is still one of the greatest sinners in history. He could belong to many of Dante´s many circles of hell, but there is only one true place for this sinful king to dwell in the afterlife.
Have you thought about which pharaohs in the New Kingdom were significant and which ones were not? In Ancient Egypt, there were roles called pharaohs. Some were significant and some were not. The significant pharaohs were from the New Kingdoms were first, Thutmose III, second, Hatshepsut, and third, Ramses II.
Well before Hatshepsut ruled in full capacity, she gained knowledge of how to rule during her adolescence and time as King’s Wife. The grouping of these two portions of Hatshepsut’s life is quite important because it was during this time that Hatshepsut learned how to rule and the matter of her birth would be of great use to her later in life. She was born a princess to the pharaoh Thutmose I, her father, and her mother, Ahmes or Ahmose. Ahmes was the pharaoh’s first royal wife which meant that she was his principal wife and thus she was his queen. Hatshepsut being born to Ahmes meant that she had the purest blood at the time of her birth (Cooney 50-53). The only issue for Hatshepsut was that she was not born a boy which is what her parents would have desired. Ancient Egypt was predominantly a patriarchal society and pharaohs were expected to be male, the incarnation of the sun god Ra in the physical world. Hatshepsut was
Before Napoleon became emperor, France was in a post-revolutionary state after a series of civil wars. Napoleon Bonaparte’s accomplishments were achieved inside and outside of France. Napoleon’s political feats were achieved by having superior military leadership. Napoleons leadership of France ended up turning tables in many different areas from gaining economic stability to establishing an agreement with Pope Pius VII of the Roman Catholic Church. The greatest achievements that made the years 1801-1805 the height of Napoleons political career were the Concordat, the Napoleonic Code, and the reformation of French economy.
The Architectural Fantasy by Hubert Robert is an oil painting created in 1802. For an architectural painting, is displays much emotion through the use of color, line, and light. The painting does not utilize a multitude of colors but still is able to provide an exciting scene. Although it does not appear to be that large in the gallery, the work would actually be prominent if it were a standalone piece. The artist’s use of perspective, light, and color give the overall composition a balanced look.
