Translated by Ruth Fraenkel Von Velsen. Oxford: Basil Blackwell & Mott Ltd., 1938. Alexander the Great was the King of the Ancient Greek Kingdom of Macedon. This book investigates Alexander’s relationship between, not only his people of Macedon, but with all of Ancient Greece. This reference is useful because it looks at the link between his relationships and his role as leader.
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.

Profiles In Eloquence Politicians have often been credited with being eloquent speakers, from the earliest times to the present day. Marcus Antonius (a Roman Politician and soldier) made one of the most memorable speeches in history. Shakespeare dramatized this in the play Julius Caesar when he used Antonius’s famous opening words “Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears”. These words have become immortalized in the minds of literature students and the countless numbers who have used this speech in elocution contests. Also from the ancient world is Demosthenes, one of the greatest orators of his time, of whom Cicero said “inter omnis unus excellat” - “he stands alone among all the orators”.
Prometheus’s punishment upsets and pains him. He also calls the punishment “shameful” multiple times over the course of the text (5, 16, 36). Prometheus clearly seems to deeply regret the effects of his actions. Prometheus adds that despite his incredible foreknowledge, “Nevertheless, I did not expect such a punishment” (11). His knowledge of the future still did not enable him to understand the full extent of his punishment.
During his 57 years of rule he sought to avoid – at least by the letter of the law – more official power that his colleagues had (RG 34) He did that by succeeding to have the Senate and the people as the instigators of those positions. At the same time he also made a point of not accepting those that might affect their republican sensitivities such as refusing to accept the post of guardian of laws and customs but also of the dictatorship and perpetual consulship mentioned in RG 5.1 and RG 5.3. Also on leaving office, Augustus like the other consuls, swore that he had done nothing contrary to the laws (Dio Cass.
Rome was not built in a day, nor by one man alone. Throughout history, influential figures have always had helpers hidden away in the background; Caesar was no exception to this. He would not have been able to succeed in his accomplishments if it were not for the help from his predecessors and peers. Many directly impacted Caesar through their actions, while others simply laid down the foundation for which Caesar later built his empire on. People’s actions have a way of affecting those who come years after them.
The Life of Julius Caesar The History staff uses facts and evidence to support their claim that Julius Caesar is often remembered as one of the greatest military minds in history and credited with laying the foundation for the Roman Empire. The History Staff supports their claim by including his life before he was known for his many achievements and the First Triumvirate that started his career. The History Staff uses the many battles he fought in or led to also support their claim. The History Staff concludes with the events that led up to the death of Julius Caesar. The author uses these many facts to support their claim so as to create a scholarly and accurate argument.
Political figures in art has always been an important part of our history, culture and artistic representation, Roman and Byzantine art is a classic case of these representations. The Equestrian Statue of Marcus Aurelius and Justinian as World Conqueror are two examples that demonstrate the power and prestige of these political authorities. First, Equestrian Statue of Marcus Aurelius from the Roman, Italy (173-176 CE) measures 11’6” high, cast in bronze. Secondly, Justinian as World conqueror from Byzantium period measures 13” x 11” entire panel, center panel 7” x 5” and 1” deep. The creator of the equestrian statue is unknown, however, the creator of Justinian’s ivory relief was probably made by the imperial work of Constantinople.
However, there were others who contributed to the historic factors of the Hellenic culture. First there was Herodotus was one of those Greek historians who regarded, as "The Father of History" was the first historian known to have broken from Homeric tradition to treat historical subjects as a method of investigation—specifically, by gathering relative and significant material arranging them into a historic narrative. The History is the only work, which he is known to have produced, a record of his "inquiry" on the origins of the Greco-Persian Wars. Then there is Thucydides an Athenian Historian and General. His history of the Peloponnesian War recounts war between Sparta and Athens.
Though the true death date of the mastermind and influence is unknown this does not mean that King Arthur was not real. King Arthur’s legacy will live on for many more years to come as the one and true king in history. The real King Arthur may not be the same as the one is known through literature but he still ruled with the same honor and stability as the Arthur from the great legends. The proof of a real King Arthur remains debated but who’s to say that King Arthur did not go on daring quest or have a great kingdom that all
