Julius Caesar proved that he was one of the greatest Romans to be apart of Rome and with his military strategies that led him to conquer most of Gaul and parks of England, this shows that he was a true genius. The way that he was able to manipulate the government so he would win his election is just so elegant. He got the richest man in Rome and one of the most respected and joined them three together, and together they could have done anything. Julius Caesar used his greatness in battle as a way for him to gain popularity within the Roman population. Julius Caesar was a Roman
Augustus Caesar, often referred to as the creator of the Roman Empire, was Rome’s first emperor, and arguably its greatest one. Although his relationship with each varied, he understood the importance of gaining the support of the military, the senate, and the people. He rose to power and maintained his power as a result of this ability. During his lengthy reign, he oversaw the transformation of the political and religious institutions, economy, administration, and army of the fragile Roman Republic into those of the Roman Empire (Mellor 6). In addition to a sense of humor, Augustus possessed intelligence, ruthlessness, and political savvy— traits which enabled him to craftily legitimize his autocratic rule under the forms of traditional republican law, and establish the legal, political, and cultural foundations for an empire that would persist for the next 1500 years.
Glorious men have graced the earth and have left significant impressions on the following generations. Alexander the Great suits that profile like none other. As arguably one of the most influential military leaders in history, Alexander conquered the majority of the known world, including large-scale empires such as the Persian. Succeeding his father, Philip II, to the throne at the age of 20, Alexander commanded an already skilled military, which he schooled further in the beginning of his reign. Even militarily significant empires had no chance against Alexander 's military brilliance and so he constructed one of the largest empires in history.

Julius Caesar has been represented in history as a multi-faceted Roman leader, excelling in the military, social and political spheres of Roman life.

Alexander was given many hard tasks and tremendous responsibilities as a child and teen, which he carried out with ease. As an adult king, Alexander ruled over Macedonia and kept it safe from invasion and rebellion. He then sought to conquer as much of the world as possible. When Alexander was about 30, a feat in itself, he ruled over the biggest empire in the history of the world (this record

Through his battles, Caesar is known for his conquest of Gaul. Caesar had many victories and soon became the dictator of Rome. Not only did Caesar eliminate all his enemies and conquer places but he was kind to his defeated rivals. Without a son of his own, he needed an heir. Caesar then adopted Augustus.
“With the help of the military at his command, it was possible to conquer new territories and so gain a triumph and the pleasure of knowing that your name would be remembered forever in statues and inscribed in monuments paid for by the war” (Summary of Julius Caesar 's Life and Death). As time went on Julius Caser began to develop more power over the years. Julius made his way to praetor ship by 62 BC, and many of the senates felt he was a dangerous, ambitious man.

The Persian Empire was the most powerful empire of its time with two great rulers. These two rulers were Cyrus II and Darius III. Which ruled the Persian Empire with great force of action but also with the understanding of others when it was needed and there culture. Now which leads me to say that I believe the best ruler in my eyes was the founder of the Persian Empire which is Cyrus the Great because he understood his opponents. However, under his rule the empire embraced all the previous civilized states of the ancient Near East, expanded vastly and eventually conquered most of Southwest Asia and much of Central Asia and the Caucasus.
