Hamlet feels betrayed by his mother and feels like he can 't trust anyone.

The story of Bayeux Tapestry illustrates a political statement. King Edward picked William to be his successor after he died; however, Harold deceived him and took over the Throne of England.

Although John Wilkes Booth committed an awful crime, he took a huge stand by assassinating President Abraham Lincoln and changed the course of U.S. history forever. This tragic event happened at a very important point in history. The Civil War had been raging since 1861, resulting in the loss of thousands of Americans and further splitting the country in half.

At the end of Chapter 12, Grendel’s last words were “Poor Grendel’s had an accident … So may you all.” (Gardner 174). Such words are meant as a curse to affect mankind. To start off, Grendel’s relationship with humans are not great. For example, when Grendel went to the hall to bring the dead body he found, “drunken men rushed me with battle-axes ..

The public response to Attila the Hun taking control was no surprise, as he was next in line with his brother, whom he killed to be the sole ruler. He united the tribes of the Hun Kingdom and was said to be a just ruler to his own people. The ultimate outcome of both men was death.

In the play Macbeth written by William Shakespeare between 1606 and 1607, there are lots of mentions of violence and blood. There are also many considerations about who had been murdered honourably or dishonourably. To die honourably meant that the person died a soldier 's death, that they went down in battle fighting for their country against the enemy. One character who is considered to have died an honourable death is Young Siward, he had died in battle fighting against Macbeth. The character who is seen to have died a dishonourable death would be Macbeth, as he turned on his country, killed royal family and friends, as well as plotted with what weird sisters had told him.
He was killed by the warrior Paris. While in battle, Paris, whom had fled from the battle, was given a poisonous arrow by the god Apollo. He took this arrow and shot it over a wall and hit Achilles right in the heel. The poison spread very quickly, as we read on page one-hundred and forty-four: “Achilles staggered for a moment as the fiery poison of the god burned through his veins.” We can see how he had great glory in two ways. One way he had glory was as he killed people.
Lady Macbeth was feeble and let her guilt drive her to the point of insanity and suicide, unlike her husband, who was determined to die fighting.

The sources come from "excerpt from Gesta regum Anglorum" which is talking about the chronicle of Kings of England that was written in about 1125. The English historian, William of Malmesbury emphasized both William and Harold here as the great and powerful leaders. These sources display the Battle of Hastings as the image of Normans and William. Excerpt from Gesta regum Anglorum clarifies the battle which had started with the Conquest of Normans by the king of William. It is obvious that " In the battle both leaders distinguished themselves by their bravery" and they showed how prepared for the battle according their own national custom.
