To a moderate extent, the First World War can be blamed for the fall of the Romanov Dynasty. Tsar Nicholas’s poor judgement in prioritising the war over his people led to both economic issues in Russia, and numerous defeats on the front. His decision to command the army further made Russian people lose faith in the Romanovs, as he was now responsible for all of Russia’s losses. Furthermore, Tsarina Alexandra, who was left to rule the country, fell under the destructive influence of Rasputin, increasing her unpopularity. However, the Tsar’s desire for his autocratic power to be maintained, and his incompetent leadership also played a major role in the fall of the Romanovs.
The Fall Of Rome Rome was one of the greatest cities in history, and soon enough it died off. My reasons for it dying of, is plague, earthquake, and the huns. I found this information in Document D and Document F. Historians have many reasons they think why Rome eventually died out, leaving an abandoned city. Document D give information on the Huns. The Huns were the definition of savagery, Rome had to go to war with the Huns.
This angered supporters of the Golden Horde which lead to an attack on the Chagatyids. This on going conflict lead to the Chagatai Khanate losing power in Transoxiana to the much more powerful army of the Golden Horde. This struggle to lead to the independence of the Chagatai Khanate which was on the verge of crumbling. The main government moved to Turkestan and under the leadership of Timur strenghtened this Khanate through the conquering of cities in Iraq, Syria, and Baghdad. He even defeated the Turks at Angora.
When Diocletian split the empire it was a monumentally mistake. He divided the empire based on language with the western side speaking Latin and the East side speaking Greek. When Diocletian Died a civil war broke out because there was so much unrest inside the country. Social Problems were a factor people lost confidence in the Roman Empire. People just let the Fall of Rome just happen they did not care.
He ruthlessly drove his competitors out of business to gain all control. Rockefeller knew that if he built a substantial pipeline to transfer his oil, he would be able to cut the railroad industry out for good. Soon, that’s exactly what Rockefeller had accomplished. On the other hand, you could contend my point by arguing that Rockefeller’s invention provided jobs to people, as it grew. However, by him creating that pipeline, it caused the railroad companies to crash the stock market and several people lost their jobs because of it, known as the Panic of 1873.
The political impact of the “barbarians” on the Roman Empire was that it weakened the empire’s government. Revenue loss made the administration unable to afford enough soldiers to control their borders. When the Huns attacked, a great influx of Germanic people migrated to the empire without any resistance. After Attila died the Huns were no more. The non-Romans who lived inside the empire shocked the world when they rebelled against the greedy Romans who had severely mistreated them.
While Caesar and Franz Ferdinand's assassination had many differences one of the only similarity was the fact that they both lead to a war. Franz Ferdinand's death sparked the start of WW1 because he was the nephew of Emperor Franz Josef and heir to the Austro-Hungarian empire who was enraged at the idea his nephew had died and started a war with the Serbians. So in conclusion, Julius Caesar and Franz Ferdinand's assassinations had many differences such as who they were killed by and the effect it had on other people, but had a major similarity in the fact that they both sparked a huge
The Holocaust is perhaps one of the most horrific things to ever happen in the history of mankind. Over the span of a few years millions of people were systematically starved and killed, resulting in the devastation of countless lives, families and countries. This gruesome event was the result of Adolf Hitler, an Austrian citizen, becoming the Chancellor of Germany and carrying out his plans to improve the state of his crumbling nation. But how did Adolf Hitler, the fascist dictator that orchestrated one of the largest genocides in human history, rise to power in a democratic nation? Hitler rose to power due to the destruction of the nation after World War I due to the Treaty of Versailles and his anti semitic propaganda.
In 1025, the death of Basil II marks the date that Byzantium began to decline. For the next 59 years, the empire would be misgoverned by thirteen inept emperors that would bring the once overwhelmingly rich and powerful state to the verge of collapse. The following years the emperors spent lavishly on buildings, churches and largesse, draining the imperial treasury. Adding to the financial crisis, the emperor Romanus VII was under the burden of wealthy landlord’s to relieve them from the pressure of taxation. He abandoned Basil II policy requiring the rich to pay the unpaid taxes of the poor.
The book “Culture & Values: A survey of the Humanities” by by Lawrence S. Cunningham, John J. Reich, and Louis Fichner-Rathus states that “The inability of Alexander’s generals to agree on a single successor after his death made that division of the Macedonian Empire inevitable. The four most important kingdoms that split off—Syria (the kingdom of the Seleucids), Egypt, Pergamun, and Macedonia—were soon at loggerheads, and remains so until they were finally conquered by Rome” (110). The land of Egypt fell to Alexander’s general Ptolemy I who had been left to oversee the wealthy territory of the Nile river. Ptolemy’s plan was to ensure his legitimacy both as Egypt’s king and also true heir to Alexander. The Macedonian tradition held that the one who buried the body of the king secures his right to the throne.
On August third, 1914, on the night that England first entered World War I, British statesman Edward Grey wrote, “The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our life.” Many people in Europe died during the years that followed. People fought each other in the most dreadful ways. Everyone was affected in some way. Despite World War I being the biggest war in modern history to date, what it really did that was even worse is that it set the stage for World War II. First the assassination of Gavrilo Princip lead to the Great War as it was known at the time.
Before the start of World War One there were many things that had contributed to starting it, the most immediate cause that started it would be the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. When the war was coming to an end and Germany was losing they had to surrender due to certain factors such as the British blockade and their untrained army with low resources. The causes that began World War One were things like Alliances between countries, growing armies, and the major cause and start to the War: the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. The main alliances were the Triple Entente (Allies) and the Triple Alliance (Axis). The Triple Entente consisted of Britain, Russia and France and the Triple Alliance had Germany, Italy and Austria-Hungary.
1 Civil War David H Mann HIS/155 Staci Anson April 29, 2017 What do you think Foote meant in the passage quoted above? How does the Civil War define the United States? TheCivil War is considered to be one of the most significant events in American history. Even though, the war was the reason of destruction for many Americans, this Civil War made it possible for America to convert the country into Unified States and also made USA, the most powerful country in the whole world.

Diseases probably played the biggest role in the collapse of the Incan empire. Shortly before the arrival of Pizarro, the smallpox epidemic had just killed the Incan emperor and most of his court. Then, there was a civil war between Atahuallpa and his brother Huascar regarding who should be emperor next. If it had not been for the epidemic the Spaniards would have faced a united empire. 23.
One man, Vladimir Lenin saw that Russia was spiraling downwards, having lost two battles in a row and having the highest death count out of all the European countries he saw that a change was needed. Lenin was the leader of the Bolsheviks who were a communist group that wanted to draw out of the war and over thrown Czar Nicholas II. Preaching peace, and food he wanted, ¨the offer of peace, the salvation of Petrograd, salvation from famine, and the transfer of land to the peasants who depended on them,¨ (Document 8). People were drawn into this and, ¨increasingly taken in by the propagandists of the united Socialist Party and their internationalis ideas,¨ (Document 9). This combined with high death rates, starvation, communist ideals started the overthrow of Russia and the end of the war.
