The unstable governments of the past years had Italy yearning for a strong leader, and when it was needed the most Mussolini stood up and took that role. Mussolini was the dictator of fascist Italy, and his ways of getting to that point were extremely efficient. With the help of his Blackshirts and a charismatic personality he worked his way up to total power. Italy was never planning to join the war, the liberal democratic government was against it at the time. Splinter groups like the one Mussolini was a part of wanted to join the war on the side of the Entente.
The First Triumvirate eventually fell due to Caesar’s extensive governorship in Gaul and Pompey’s eagerness to join the Optimate Faction. However, at that point in time, Caesar was far too successful for the alliance’s failure to affect his ever-thriving political strength. Seeing that he had victoriously completed his conquest of Gaul, “Caesar set up an efficient provincial administration to govern the vast territories,” and went on his way to lead Rome autocratically (McManus, 1). Though he tried to obtain this positon legally, he eventually resorted to military force,
We all know that United States won World War ll, but how did we win? World War ll was a gruesome war between the Nazi Party and the United States and many other countries. The war lasted from 1939 through 1945. United States was brought into the war when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. The way that the United states won the war was because our military is strong, we had good allies, and great leaders in office and on the battlefield.
Hitler’s brilliance definitely shined in the field of persuasion, for he was known to have a “clear vision and a mission on a subject and the determination to convince the world of that mission.” This type of personality prompted people to also become devoted to his cause. In this area, Hitler’s knowledge on the art of coaxing gives him good emotional intelligence. Next, Vlad is known to be an amazing manipulator giving him unseen power over other individuals. Vlad, in his rise to power, went and “turned the sultan into his own little, adoring puppet,” to try and solidify his future reign. Using manipulation like this requires a large amount of understating to how people work.
Julius Caesar was the first dictator of Rome, which left the people with a displeasing feeling of him. He came into rule, wanting to make life better for the people of Rome and give them better odds in the case of something bad happening. My prompt was to elaborate what led to Julius Caesar’s death and how it happened; also supposed to give a reason to why they thought he was killed. Julius Caesar died because of the way he tried to go about ruling Rome; the council did not agree with the way that Caesar was trying to rule and they disagreed with him on more than one occasion, because he had political experience before he became the dictator of Rome. To begin, Julius Caesar was the first dictator in Roman history,causing a lot of problems with the council and the people.
Hannibal was victorious in many great battles in Northern Italy like the Battle of Trebia, the Battle of Lake Trasimene and the Battle of Cannae. Hannibal requested more soldiers, as he was moving towards the North, but Carthage refused. The Romans later realized that it was going to be difficult to beat Hannibal, so they decided to cut off supplies to make life harder for Hannibal before he attacks. It was a very smart idea and it resulted Hannibal to rush back to his homeland to protect it from the Romans at the Battle of Zama on October 19th, 202 BC. Once again, Rome gains victory in the war and now controls much of the Western Mediterranean, which means that Carthage lost much of its
Two days after the assassination, Mark Antony summoned the senate and managed to work out a compromise in which the assassins would not be punished for their acts, but all of Caesar 's appointments would remain valid. By doing this, Antony most likely hoped to avoid large cracks in government forming as a result of Caesar 's death. Antony diminished the goals of the conspirators. “The result unforeseen by the assassins was that Caesar 's death precipitated the end of the Roman Republic” (Julius 1). To end it off, Julius caesar was a very powerful leader; but with power came many more powerful enemies.
Julius Caesar and Abraham Lincoln were similar in a lot of ways. Both were very famous political ﬁgures known for dealing with civil wars amongst their countries. They also both supported the common people and wanted to advance their countries to be more modern. Caesar updated the Roman Calendar and contributed to many reforms that helped the common people of his empire. Lincoln was a supporter of stopping the expansion of slavery which won him the popularity of the northern states.
Napoleon Bonaparte rose to power through a radical republic produced by the french revolution. He was able to do this through his immense military success and the resulting support from the population. He had painted himself to be a war hero, and the public believed it willingly. His subsequent downfall from power fittingly came from his major military losses. During the french revolution, Napoleon was a supporter, from afar, and let that influence his policies during his reign as Emperor.
1. Introduction In William Shakespeare’s play, Julius Caesar, Gaius Julius Caesar is described by the character of Mark Antony as being, “…the noblest Roman of them all…” (Shakespeare Julius Caesar 184.108.40.206). Julius Caesar has been represented in history as a multi-faceted Roman leader, excelling in the military, social and political spheres of Roman life. This discursive analysis will centre around Caesar’s position in history through a focus on his characteristics as exhibited in sources. His appeal as a fascinating historical character through his ambitious nature and popularity amongst the people will first be examined, followed by a discussion on how Caesar achieved his prominent position in history resulting from his contributions to and expansion of Roman society and the nature of his assassination.
