They also both supported the common people and wanted to advance their countries to be more modern.

Kadesh is a Hittite territory known for influential trade centers and beautiful cities. The Hittite empire takes pride in each of their provinces; therefore the Hittite warriors have a natural instinct to widen their vast territory and increase connections across the ancient world. A battle held in a Hittite territory would signify greater advantages for them; however, King Ramses displayed exceptional courage and confidence, which led him towards the battle of Kadesh, even with the risk of terrible loss. Egypt functioned according to the law of Ma'at. Ma’at held Egyptian matters superior to anything; it required the king to execute laws for the prosperity Egypt.Therefore, King Ramses would not surrender even if Egypt dangled at the brink of defeat; he would fight till death and save the reputation to honor the proud gods and ancestors of Egypt.On the other hand, the Hittite empire was well known for their merciless military tactics and incessant ambition to conquer Egypt.Egypt would become an incredible addition to their array of vast
Throughout ancient history, there have been many considerable and loyal rulers. However, there is one ruler that left a mark on his nation. Augustus Caesar impacted history and made Rome the powerful and supreme nation that we know to be today. Octavian was a fair but devoted leader. Augustus had many contributions to Rome such as conquering many lands, bringing peace to the lands, and being respectful towards his people.
Earlier today, I heard about Napoleon, a French military leader and emperor. Napoleon, had major military success across Europe and expanded his empire. Napoleon also reformed the revolution by making changes with the laws, government, and especially education. I 'm glad that Napoleon is also focused on education, so therefore I may attend school, thanks to him because he has constructed many schools. This led to the sis of democracy since his nationalism gave people the idea, that they can revolt and create their own democratic government.
Many citizens in France, mostly those of the upper class, hated Mazarin because his decisions of increasing tax and strengthening the central government (World History- Patterns of Interaction 520). There were violent anti-Mazarin riots tore apart France, Louis XIV never forgot the extreme violent actions along with the fear. When Mazarin died, Louis was left with the problems he left behind. Another problem he faced was mostly based on the many conflicts involving the Huguenots; French Protestants. Before, Henry of Navarre set up the Edict of Nantes that allowed religious freedom and showed tolerance to the Huguenots (World History- Patterns of Interaction 518).
Napoleon was not only aggressive on the battlefield, but as well as in office. He strengthened the central government by order, security, and efficiency. While also restoring economic problems by rooting in new industries, controlling prices, and establishing roads and canals. Though he was vain, Napoleon truly made better living conditions for France for ALL. His reforms of the revolution immensely improved the environment and reputation of France, for the better.
Charlemagne wanted to defend the church due to the power that it provoked. He worked to strengthen the role of the church in order to improve the hierarchical structure and the power of the clergy. Along with the church were the oaths that Charlemagne believed in, to ensure loyalty to all of his subjects. Using these oaths, he believed that fidelity should be promised. “Each one according to his vow and occupation, should now promise to him as emperor the fidelity which he had previously promised to him as king.” Faithfulness could be reached by taking these oaths.

Concern for the a monotheistic religion began with the rise of the Christians.

The French also raised import taxes, allowing profit for every transaction. Another branch of success that the French had was their aggressive and supreme military, creating expansion of their borders. Both the French absolute monarchy and the English monarchy used success to help modernize each of their societies. A major difference between the French and the English was their use of kings. While the French supported absolutism or the autocratic rule of their king, the English distributed equal power to the parliament as well as the king.
Rome was the most powerful and influential empire because of its military, government, and economy.

Although there are five emperors, I compare Augustus Ceasar to Marcus Arelius. They both had lots of achievements for their empire, which made them unforgettable. Marcus Arelius was a very successful man leading the Roman Army to a victory against the Parthian Empire in the eastern part of Central Europe.

Militarism is one of the causes because war became a regular thing because people were raised to fight, and being a soldier was such a heroic title during the ages of the war. They believed men were born to fight in war from their childhood, and military is in everything that a country does. Britain was the largest empire in the world at that time, holding 20% of the globe and 25% of the world population. Germany was jealous that Britain had built up such a vast empire, so they tried improving the foundations of their military to try to beat out Britain. As Kaiser William II (the leader of the German navy) attempted restoring his troops, Britain quickly took notice to this and better yet upgraded their troops as well, knowing Germany didn 't stand a chance.
