During majority of its existence, it was the most powerful economic, cultural, and military force in Europe ("The Byzantine," n.d., para. 2). This empire was the greatest empire, and made countless contributions to civilization. Although some people think it was unsuccessful because of what the tax difficulty did to the empire, it was a success and lasted so long because of the army, the location, and the great emperor Justinian. In 476 AD, the empire finally fell after an Ottoman army stormed Constantinople (history.com/para1).

The empire then developed to incorporate numerous zones in what is currently present-day Europe to and it in the end got to be one of the largest, most powerful and longest-enduring empires on the planet 's history. It had a most extreme range of 7.6 million square miles in 1595. The Ottoman Empire started to decline power in the eighteenth century yet a segment of its land got to be what Turkey is today. After some military defeats in the mid 1400s the Ottomans recovered their power under Muhammad I and in 1453 they caught Constantinople. The Ottoman Empire then entered its stature and what is known as the Period of Great Expansion, amid which time the empire came to incorporate the lands of more than ten diverse European and Middle Eastern states.
Sudan is located in Africa next to Egypt, and it lays on the red sea. It was ruled at the time between 1896-1956. Sudan was at the time a backward, non-technological, simple life before imperialism. It had a lot of rich resources such as oil, natural gas, gold, silver, copper, nickel and agriculture which were the number one goal of any imperialist country. Sudan like any colonized country suffered from a lot of good effects and bad side effects some of them were short term impact and some are long term impact.
Introduction Turkey is the country of the southwest Asia and southeast Europe between the Mediterranean and the Black Seas. Turkey became part of the Byzantine Empire; afterwards the region was occupied by the Ottoman Turks between the 13th and the 16th centuries and maintained as the center of the Ottoman Empire. This research paper is all about the two empires in Turkey: the Byzantine Empire and the Ottoman Empire. The Byzantine Empire was in the site of Byzantium, where it was a small town but it was a very important place during this time because this site used to be where the Byzantium Empire laid, the area was highly fertile, also stood as the guard over the only entrance into the Black Sea, and it laid by a deep bay which was the golden horn- meaning this city could only be attacked by the west. The Byzantine Empire is also referred to as the Eastern Roman Empire because it was in fact the continuation of the East Roman Empire during the time when Constantinople as the capital of Turkey.
Introduction Both Carthage and Rome were growing and competitive powers that each dreamed of holding the supremacy. These two powers had their similarities and also great differences. In this paper, I will try to provide a brief history of Carthage, the power of Rome, comparison between Carthage and Rome, the Punic wars, and the creation and the power of Roman navy. The paper will therefore end with a conclusion stating my views. The origin and rise of Carthage According to Morey (1901), Carthage was a colony of Tyre which later became the capital of a great commercial empire on the northern coast of Africa.

From the 600s B.C. till its final revelations in 1453 A.D., Constantinople was the gateway to all of Christianity in western civilization to the Islamic Empire of the east. Through its resiliency, Eastern Orthodoxy's focal point was solely responsible for the preservation of Greek teachings, Literature, art, and the Christian faith (“Eastern Orthodoxy”). After countless sieges from the impeding Islamic Empire of the east, Constantinople's stand against invasions safeguarded all of western civilization as we know it today. Without it, the only surviving religion of all of Europe could have been based on Islamic
Antediluvian Egypt is one of the greatest archaic civilizations in the world. It is the domicile of the prodigious River Nile and the sun god, Amon-Ra. In this barren landscape, where sand reigns supreme, a diminutive group of people built a lasting civilization that would be recollected for all time. From pyramids to great medical achievements, jaw-dropping temples that can be optically discerned like nowhere else, and a hierarchal structure of potency like our modern system, there are so many things they are reminisced about. The preeminent characteristics of this civilization will be outlined and explicated on what made this an abundant and lasting civilization that is still verbalized about to this day.
The Ancient Egyptian civilization is one of the earliest, most glorious and influential civilizations the world has ever seen. It lasted for thousands of years starting from the nomadic farmers in the Nile Valley in 5000 BC all the way to the end of the Ptolemaic period, which marked the onset of Roman occupation in 30 BC. In order to make better sense of these 5000 long years, historians divided Egyptian history into alternating eras of unity and stability, called Kingdoms, which were in turn divided into the successions of rulers called dynasties and the durations of fragmentation in between, called Intermediate periods. While each of the three Kingdoms namely, the Old Kingdom, Middle Kingdom and New Kingdom were consolidated in the presence of a strong, single power, each of the Intermediate periods that followed were instable and fragmented. Therefore, Ancient Egypt witnessed cycles of what historians refer to as the ‘rise and fall’ or ‘formation and reformation’ of the State.
The trade system relied on key trading centers, such as Aksum (present-day Ethiopia), “Aksum reached its height between 325 and 360” (Doc 1). Aksum was valuable due to its location, which was near the Gulf of Aden and Red Sea. Cooperation played a major role in the trade, as all the empires needed goods and wealth. A good example is Ghana, “The Arab traders of
The Roman Empire is considered to be one of the greatest empires in all of history. During its centuries long run, the empire was able to conquer and rule large portions of Europe and Africa. As such, the Roman Empire is often used as the model for the creation of a successful government. The United States, a modern major power, has a government that closely mirrors of ancient Rome. The three-branch system currently used by the US government was originally a concept created and developed by the Romans.
Cordoba: Cordoba was only one of the great centers of learning within the Arab world, a vast domination that stretched at its height from the Pyrenees in France to the Pamir Mountains in central Asia, and as far south as the Indus Valley in India. At a time when the wisdom of the Greeks had been lost in most of Europe, Arab scholars in Cordoba, Damascus and Baghdad were sources to make further advances in such fields as astronomy, math, medicine and philosophy Aqua vitae: Aqua vitae seemed supernatural and in a since it was for distilled wine has a far higher alcohol content than any drink that can be produced by natural fermentation. Eve the hardiest yeasts cannot tolerate an alcohol content greater than 15 percent. Men lived well over seventy an unusually advanced age for the time which may have been taken as evidence for aqua vitae’s life-prolonging power. Aqua vitae’s proponents believed it could preserve youth, Could be a drink or applied externally to affect the part of the body.
Geography played a huge role in the lives of both the ancient Egyptians and the Mesopotamians. It affected much more than crop cycles or the weather; it affected everything about the way each group lived, including the way each viewed their own separate gods. Egypt and Mesopotamia aren’t very far apart by our standards today, but those 900 miles back then made a lot of difference. The main things both civilizations had in common were things like being dry deserts that lay close to rivers with fertile soil for crops to grow. These similarities are what allowed both groups to flourish and expand into a long-staying civilization of people.
The United States is looked at as a superpower that has lasted for hundreds of years, but this is a miniscule comparison to the Byzantine Empire, which lasted for almost 1100 years. Under Emperor Constantine, the Byzantine Empire flourished with an influx of trade and large amounts of efficacious conquest. The fortuitous location of the Byzantine Empire along with its military strategies and diplomatic policies facilitated its prosperity, while Western Europe was plunged into the Dark Ages by a plague of invaders, which led to Roman dominance of Eastern Europe throughout the middle Ages. Constantinople prospered greatly as a Mediterranean center of trade, religion, and culture due to its geographical blessing. “The city quickly rose in significance
