“Following his victory in the Battle of Sekigahara in 1600, however, Tokugawa Ieyasu swiftly consolidated power from his heavily fortified castle at Edo. From the beginning, the Tokugawa regime focused on re-establishing order in social, political and international affairs after a century of warfare.” (History.com). This example shows that he seized power after the battle of Edo Castle and that he was able to become Shogun and establish social order. This was the first step of ending the Sengoku Jidai when he created the shogunate. “He strengthened the social class lock and the isolation laws Toyotomi Hideyoshi made.” “He banned christianity forever, and instead everyone believed in Buddhism and Shintoism”(need) As ruler of Japan, he had complete control, no stress required.
Tokugawa Ieyasu was the founder and the first shogun of the Tokugawa shogunate of Japan, and has been one of the most significant figures in Japanese history. Besides being such a successful and powerful ruler, Ieyasu had immensely changed the way Japanese society was structured and organised. From 1603-1608, Tokugawa began the modernisation of Japan. He became the first shogun who had more power over the emperor, and started changing the ways of Japan’s trade, economy, agriculture and social hierarchy. Ieyasu’s ‘main political goal was to cut off the roots of potential dissent and rebellion’ (University of Colorado, 2015); he did so when his army was victorious at the Battle of Sekigahara in 1600.

He states that he plans to attend university and ultimately become a legitimate politician. His father, Don Vito Corleone, supports his decision to live his life in the legitimate world, but is upset that Michael had not consulted him before re-entering college.

The head was created at the commission of the current Oba of the Benin to honor his father who has passed away. Kings were the only ones allowed to ask for their creation and the only ones wealthy enough to pay for it. The head was a piece required for the shrine each king made for his predecessor and through this they would communicate with the deceased king (Metropolitan Museum of Art “Head of an Oba”). The Benin people believed that the head acted as a conduit in which the past king gave his power to his son and through this the new king is accepting the responsibilities of being the ruler (Metropolitan Museum of Art “Head of an Oba”). The people of Benin( the Edo people) saw the head as the focus of a man’s overall character, all that he knows, his authority, his success and leadership(Metropolitan Museum of Art “Head of an Oba”)..
Macbeth is first described as a war hero who led the final blow on Macdonwald by a captain: “For brave Macbeth… with his brandished steel/ unseamed [Macdonwald] from the nave to th’ chops”(I, ii, 18, 20-24). With his ambition, he is able to gain the upper hand and lead his army into a successful battle that was incredibly close to losing. Ultimately, his eagerness to lead these people not only because he is a thane, but also because of his loyalty to King Duncan reveals how he is an astounding leader who is successful. In turn, the audience is able to see Macbeth as a hero, more specifically a leader who is honest and loyal. Along with the battle comes the reward and Macbeth is given the new title ‘Thane of Cawdor’ from King Duncan who announces “What [Thane of Cawdor] hath lost, noble Macbeth hath won”(I, ii, 67) Through earnest motivation, Macbeth has now won a new title and trust from the king which in turn allows him to take a step closer into possibly obtaining the royal throne.
I believe the decline can be summed up with one word, Stagnation. Dynasties like the Ottoman Empire have a natural lifespan so to speak and by the 1700s and early 1800s it had reached the stagnation/decline of this life cycle. Governmental and economic stagnation are arguably the two that brought the Ottoman Empire down. I will look at Governmental Stagnation, as I believe it drove or led to the other. Being a dynasty, when one sultan would die he was succeeded by his son and until his time as sultan came the son would work in government learning how to be a ruler.
As King he ruled over all the Hawaiian Islands and brought peace to his kingdom. Kamehameha was an effective leader because he was a strong administrator, he cared about his people and his land, and he enforced the kapu system. Kamehameha was an effective leader because he was a strong administrator. After he united the islands under his rule, he placed trustworthy chiefs on the surrounding islands to act as governors.
King Kamehameha, using his disadvantage as an advantage, he led my Hawaiian ancestors to victory that day. By using the home court advantage and the use of the entire battlefield, exactly how David defeated Goliath (by using the entire battlefield to their advantage). Much like David, Kamehameha was also facing a Goliath, Cook had many smarts in battles and introduced so much western ideas and he had more experience with those western items, battle tactics was something Cook was very smart in but so was Kamehameha. The young chief ordered six canoes that manned 12 men each and his double giant double hulled canoe which held 21 personnel, he had them launch from a beach right on the outskirts of Ke,alakekua Bay and used the strength of his men to paddle quickly and swiftly close enough to a point where Cook and his men did not notice them. The men of the twelve man canoe’s were ordered by kamehameha to a halt.
Ieyasu 's victory over the western daimyo at the Battle of Sekigahara gave him complete control of all Japan and also provided him with more power. In 1603 the emperor made Ieyasu shogun. To further gain power Tokugawa quickly destroyed many enemy daimyo houses like the houses of the Toyotomi family. Despite this, Ieyasu still didn’t have control over the western daimyo. After further consolidating his
