Also, Caligula’s baffling Uncle Claudius became Emperor by the Praetorian Guard. Personally, Caligula was a tragedy waiting to happen. The people of Rome may have known that his reign would be the forefront of destruction to the Roman Empire, but a blind hope of arrogance clouded their judgment as Caligula’s terror destroyed the lives of those around him. However, Caligula’s life was built for luxury, military warfare, and egomania. Most Emperors would have the decency to respect his people, protect their empire, and keep peace among other countries.

Introduction In seeking to answer the question I propose to examine certain aspects of Augustus’ rise to power and the way he obtained and exercised his auctoritas/Ἀξιώματι/influence and became the de facto if not de jure, sole ‘leader’ for Rome.

Vladimir began to spread the idea of paganism over the Slavs but soon switched to Christianity, uniting the people under his rule and leaving the
King Akbar was a direct descendant of Genghis Khan and Tamerlane. In abolishing the jizya tax on Hindus and other non-muslims and appointing them to high government and military posts, he was the first Muslim ruler to win the trust, loyalty, and love of his subjects from all religions. Akbar set an example, one that defined him as one of the greatest rulers in history; an individual did not have to be Muslim in order to be treated fairly in the Mughal empire. In today’s world, we can see how Akbar’s ideals are inconsistent with the current discrimination and violence against people of different religious communities, especially in Pakistan and Afghanistan, lands he once used to rule. Called to the throne at the age of thirteen after his father’s death, Akbar inherited very little since his father had been driven from power and had only managed to regain it in the last couple of months before he died.
