His life has been strange and tragic. For a time in the Confucian belief, he was a recognized emperor longer than most he realized that he spent in most of his life while he spent his life as a powerless prisoner because of the designs and expectations of people surrounding him.
Many people think of Rome as a great empire. Nevertheless, the Roman empire had more flaws than what one would think. Rome began around 750 BCE as a simple town. By 200 BCE, Rome was a powerful empire. The empire lasted for about 1,226 years before its “fall” in 476 CE. Critics argue rhat political instability helped bring about the “Fall” of Rome, however, the military mistakes were the primary reason behind the decline of the empire.
AN INTRODUCTION TO THE PUNIC WARS The Punic Wars, which took place between 264 and 146 BC, was a progression of warfare between Rome and Carthage. Therefore, the name “Punic” derives from the Latin adjective punicus, meaning “wars with Carthage.” These battles, which are divided into a series of three wars, can be regarded as the root of Rome’s transformation from an Italian to a Mediterranean power (Boatwright, Gargola and Talbert 2004: 104). The goal of this essay is to discuss this conflict between Rome and Carthage, and the effect that it had on the metamorphosis of Rome.
The second Punic war was a series of wars between the Roman Republic and the Carthaginian (Punic) empire around 218-201 BC. The war was brought about by the rapid growth of the Carthaginian dominion in Spain. The Romans won the war against the Carthaginians and gained control of the western Mediterranean and much of Spain.
Many rulers struggle today to keep control and at the same time have a powerful empire. Asoka was a ruler who mastered this. Asoka was born in India and was like a founding father of India, when he ruled the Mauryan Empire from 268 BCE to 232 BCE. Asoka, as a ruler, decided to form a government based on Buddhist spiritual beliefs and dharma, which helped to create a successful empire. He also sent out missionaries to carve messages in different areas and languages to help communicate through out the Mauryan Empire.
After his father was poisoned by political enemies, he began developing a personal following, which quickly expanded over numerous rival tribes. Over time, Temujin gradually persuaded his people to elect him as leader. After overcoming his nomadic rivals, he drew them into a united nation. In 1206, his followers gave him the name Genghis (Chinggis) Khan, or “Universal Ruler”.
Introduction Rome and Carthage were almost equal in strength and resources. From the early days of the Republic, Rome and Carthage maintained a friendly relationship and even signed a treaty against Pyrrhus, king of Epirus, who was a threat to both states. Comparison Ancient Carthage was a wealthy state with a small population, it employed foreigners to do the unwanted jobs and relied on foreign mercenaries rather than citizens to do her fighting. The mercenaries did not have a sense of belonging to the Carthaginian nation.

Wallace-Hadrill makes the argument that the seat of Augustus’s empire, the Imperial home on the Palatine Hill, was where the sovereignty of the emperor would become the most effective. When Augustus garnered control of the Roman Empire, the aristocracy of Rome—both the friends and enemies of the emperor-- flocked to his side in hopes of joining his Imperial court. Each courtier had a varying degree of intimacy with Augustus; the closer one was to him, the more of his borrowed authority they could access. Successful courtiers were masters of manipulation who could maneuver through positions and relationships to ingratiate themselves to the court and to the emperor. In the Imperial court, being close to the emperor and being powerful were synonymous.
In conclusion, the Barcas held the power or partial power in Carthage essentially from the end of the First Punic war until Hannibal went into exile in 195 B.C. Although they did not hold political positions until the end of Hannibal’s time in Carthage, they still shaped the politics of Carthage for more than fifty years. Moreover, the way in which they conducted their political maneuverings, either led others to love them, in the case of Hasdrubal, or hate them in the case of Hanno. Their rivalry with Hanno and his faction clearly weakened their cause in unifying Carthage against Rome. Had they not possessed the arrogance and power hunger, they most likely would have defeated Rome.

Finally, Romans had a great belief in morality among their people. They believed the Gods demanded them to remain moral to stay within the good graces of their Gods.
The Second Punic War is also known as the Second Carthaginian War. This happened between 218 and 201 B. C. This war was one of the many wars that were fought between the Roman Republic and the Carthaginian (Punic) Empire. It is very important to note that the outcome of this war was the creation of the Roman hegemony over the entire western Mediterranean. The Second Punic War also had other names. The Roman called this war the Hannibalic War and the War Against Hannibal. One thing we should know about the Second Punic War is that this war was to a considerable extent initiated by Carthage at Saguntum in Spain and is marked by Hannibal's surprising overland journey and his costly crossing of the Alps, followed by his reinforcement by Gallic
