Military conflicts, from past to present, have also played an integral part in shaping Egypt’s society. Once ruled by a Pharaoh, bordered by seas, and protected by a harsh climate, ancient Egypt did not protect its civilians with an adequately prepared military force. Therefore, ancient Egypt experienced its first defeat in battle against Hyskos. This defeat led to the building of an improved militant force to protect the Pharaoh and Egypt’s citizens. By sharing ideas with other regions and utilizing a new technology to build better weapons, battle weapons grew to include bows and arrows, shields, sickle swords, daggers, and spears made from bronze, stone, and iron.

The Golden Ages William the Conqueror was a great admirer of Edward the Confessor and in particular the legislative and court administration system that this last of the House of Wessex had started to put in place to bring order to a kingdom that had been torn apart by the misrule of Canute’s two sons and Aethelred. The Normans were unused to laws as such but for William, given that he had doubled the size of his kingdom overnight, the need to be able to govern at a distance through decree was obvious. His written word must have the force of his physical presence in the future and somehow Edward the Confessor had performed this through the decree of laws. To reinforce his adoption of Edward’s legal system, the Conqueror began openly to
King Arthur was a great and well respected and king whom people looked up to and admired, not only for his leadership qualities, but his success and perseverance in protecting his kingdom. In the fifth and sixth century, the people of Britain lacked those admirable qualities in a king, so they clung to a story of a king that was commendable and doted on. The strife that the people of Britain were surrounded by between the Roman legions leaving and the invasion of the Angles, Saxons, and Jutes while having such a terrible King in charge had a big effect on why King Arthur was such an admirable king. Growing up in the fifth and sixth century is what prompted the way of life, background, and reasons as to why King Arthur was such a benevolent
With regard to the former, Al Nahyan’s strong sense of leadership has resulted in the rise of the UAE as he led it with outmost care and built it into what it has become today, a developed country with strong economic stability. His rational decisions, which took the citizens’ best interest into consideration, gained him the trust, love and support from not only the people of his country, but many individuals around the world (H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan president of the United Arab Emirates, n.d).

Hatshepsut's rule, at least from what I read in the book, was a successful and great one. Her reign was long with many achievements. Such as trade routes with other cities and building projects like her own burial temple. Although, through all of these achievements, she still ruled "jointly" with her son, which was still a child. To me, it seems, that if Thutmose III wanted to deface his own mother's images it was to take credit for all that she accomplished while they jointly ruled Egypt.
