How do we knew this? Well, Aye did in fact become pharaoh after Tut’s demise.

If this feud of the Montagues and the Capulets never happened one one would have ever died, the story would be about something completely different. One of the most ironic things about this story is that they don't even know why they are fighting against each other. Lord Capulet is responsible why the story, Romeo and Juliet, ended the way it did because of his views on marriage, his haste, and the relationship with the Montague family. SInce the father of juliet, Capulet, wanted juliet to marry all of the sudden it made juliet want to commit suicide which did not help the situation at all. His haste also was a big factor in the marriage because it was part of the reason why juliet want to kill herself.
In William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet both the Capulets and the Montagues make several mistakes, but there is one person most responsible. Juliet 's father, Lord Capulet, is most to blame for the events that occurred and for his daughter 's death. Romeo would have never met Juliet if Lord Capulet had kicked him out of the party. In scene 5 of act 1 Tybalt recognized Romeo and instead of dueling him, Lord Capulet said to leave Romeo alone. Even if Lord Capulet thought that Romeo was not going to cause any problems he should have still kicked Romeo out, because he was not invited.
Primary source documents reveal that he failed to keep this promise: one Richard writing in the 13th-century notes, “for he had no sooner reached his own country, than he set it in commotion and threw Normandy into confusion [by attacking Richard’s lands there]...” Reports of Philip’s actions would reach Richard, and undoubtedly played a role in his decision to return to England from the Holy Land despite having never taken Jerusalem. And Richard’s concerns over the state of affairs in Normandy may very well have been directly responsible for his failure to retake Jerusalem. As Madden observes, Richard’s respected adversary Saladin died just three weeks after he had begun his return journey. Richard’s constant concerns over his homeland are unique to a king, and thus illustrate the negative impact of kings on the crusading

Husband! Oh, the blood is spilled of my dear kinsman! Prince, as thou art true, for blood of ours, shed blood of Montague.” What Lady Capulet is saying, is that because Tybalt has been killed by a Montague, a Montague should die as well. It is understandable that it could be very hard to forgive someone if they just killed your relative but that doesn’t mean you don’t ever forgive them.
As the story progresses, Macbeth goes on this killing spree that includes the deaths of Banquo and Macduff’s family. These deaths were a result of Macbeth’s insecurities that he would lose his power. Macbeth’s actual reign as King of Scotland contradicts what he expected. Therefore, Macbeth’s belief that he would enjoy his time as King of Scotland is ironic because in actuality he was not happy as the
In Antigone, the chorus is used to express the concerns of the Thebans who are too frightened by Creon’s power to confront him themselves. In the beginning, the chorus defends Creon’s laws, for they state that “[the] laws of the land, and the justice of the gods… / [will cause him] and his city [to] rise high” (Antigone 410-412). Although, when they learn as to how Creon enforces his laws, their views change, and they state that “even I [now] would rebel against the king” (Antigone 895-896). Creon’s abuse of power has become too barbaric to ignore, causing even his supporters to desire rebellion.

There are forgotten pieces of history that must have shaped what the United States of America is today. The people who kept George Washington alive when he was little and how they did it have been forgotten by most. Some of the less obvious inspirations John Locke had and what caused them have been lost. Even some of his meaning is lost in his writing. These things helped to make America and its government the way they are today.
Your reputation is everything, or at least to John Proctor it was. You want people to look at you in the best way possible. You also want to be honest and stand up for what is right. Even if someone wants you to do the wrong thing, you should stand up for what you know is right. That is exactly what John Proctor did.
