Thus, General Napoleon, now Emperor, took control of the military and defeated Austria on his first Italian campaign. The treaty of Campo Formio was signed, resulting in a territorial gain for Napoleonic France. After The Little Corsican ended the Reign of Terror’s government based around terror itself, legal and political reforms were made to reshape and rebuild France into a new, functional empire. Napoleon overthrew the Directory with his famous Coup d'etat of 18 Brumaire, ending the previous government that revolved around terror. A Consulate was established to act as the government for the new empire.
Mark Antony was a Roman general who served in the Gallic wars with Caesar and would go on to serve with Caesar again in the Civil War that took place in Rome before Caesar took over Rome. After Caesar’s death Antony saw him self as the true heir to his legacy and worked hard to make sure he stayed in power. Even though Caesar’s will gave the majority of his wealth to his grandnephew Octavian, Antony took a portion of it for him self along with claiming himself as the Caesarian faction leader. This created a rift in their relationship that would eventually boil over to war after Philippi. Antony led several legions at Philippi and his victory there helped him retain his power in the eastern Roman provinces after the battle.
Julius Caesar proved that he was one of the greatest Romans to be apart of Rome and with his military strategies that led him to conquer most of Gaul and parks of England, this shows that he was a true genius. The way that he was able to manipulate the government so he would win his election is just so elegant. He got the richest man in Rome and one of the most respected and joined them three together, and together they could have done anything. Julius Caesar used his greatness in battle as a way for him to gain popularity within the Roman population. Julius Caesar was a Roman

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 18.104.22.168). 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
In contrast to Charlemagne’s feudalism, in Ancient Regime everyone was subject of the king, as well as of an estate and province, but nationality and citizenship didn’t exist. By this time, the military revolution has already begun, and with it absolutism rose in the political sphere of France. (Palmer) The Military Revolution was a product of insecurity and political tensions throughout Europe, which later requires the Balance of Powers within the continent. The feudal armies of the past were dispersing, so the possession of the army transferred from nobility to the King, granting him even more power. This aspect of military might became the key piece for centralizing power in France, controlling the army meant collecting taxes without the consent of the Estates General, therefore diminishing the power of Estates.
Franch can be used as a prime example of an absolute monarch in Western Europe. France began building toward absolutism when Henry VI created the Edict of Nantes in efforts to reduce the violence in the country and gained many supporters. When Richelieu temporarily took the throne he centralized the government and established the supremacy of the king's law. When Louis XIV finally became king, Franch was already well on its way to an absolute monarchy. He went even further by diminishing the power of the nobility and gave them only ceremonial tasks until they we no longer relevant in the political
Napoleon also, was a skilled military leader and became the first emperor of France. Napoleon was a French leader whom quickly rose through the ranks of military during the French revolution and drove his military to expansion and change in the western world. Although they cannot be compared in every way because Napoleon twice relinquished his authority in military leadership, in which Alexander would not have even dreamt of doing. SECTION IV: Alexander the Great should be placed in a time capsule because of his outstanding and notable achievements of brilliant commands and undefeatable battles. He was young and clever with his battle tactics so that he could save the world from imperial enslavement.
From 1804 onwards the country was ruled by Napoleon as the French empire. Napoleon, a talented militarist, invaded Europe and disrupted the ‘old order’. He replaced the House of Orange -the original rulers of Holland- by Louis, his Brother and created three kingdoms in Italy. He also dethroned the Spanish king in 1908. However, after the Congress of Vienna in 1815, all the old dynasties were restored, and that implied the restoration of legitimacy.
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.

Power, and the way it is distributed, has changed over the years. The democratic system seen today in most 1st world countries which embodies the motif of the common man having power over his own destiny is a stark contrast to the despotisms, empires, and monarchies of the past. The greatest upheaval of this old system happened in the waning years of the 18th century, with the French peasantry throwing off their heavy yokes burdened upon them by their greedy and unqualified royal masters and becoming the masters of their own destiny (by appointing for themselves an emperor instead of a king). What happened in those years long past still echoes today as the model method for overthrowing oppression and taking ownership of one’s own destiny from the selfish clutches that they first had been stricken to.
Based on Chapters 6 and 7, describe how power was exercised and by whom in the Eastern and in the Western Empire. Theodosius- last emperor to rule over both East and West Power was most times taken by force in 500; Barbarian tribes in Western wreaked havoc with constant barbarian invasions (Barbarians vs Europe= why barbarian means uncivilized and cruel).
