To maintain order and avoid chaos in Babylonia, Hammurabi created a way of life for people to live by. He acted in a way that God would in the Old Testaments of the Bible. Hammurabi ruled his people with an iron fist and took no shame in making examples out of those who dared to defy his infallible laws. Hammurabi’s Code spread into Assyria and became part of Assyrian life as well. Both Babylonian and Assyrian culture adopted living by “an eye for an eye”.
He also instigated major improvements in the infrastructure within the city of Babylon and his citizens prospered under his rule. However, Hammurabi's most notable accomplishment was his 282 legal edicts known as the Code of Hammurabi. In other words, King Hammurabi's innumerable contributions as a seasoned warrior, a city
When Roosevelt became president in 1901, he changed the world rapidly in many ways. Through his personality and determination, he had an extremely popular relationship with the people, and wanted to make the society more fair and equal between them. He generally believed that the government had the responsibility to take care of businesses in order for things to not negatively affect the people, showing how he wanted to help the country and the people in it. Roosevelt has always seemed like he was prepared for everything in office with his incredible leadership skills and his energy, even though the first time he became president was because another president had been killed. He’s different from many others who came before him, especially because when he set a goal he never stopped trying to achieve it.

King Louis was responsible for ensuring the safety and order of the country, and we come to learn that his power spreads much further than suspected. By divine right and being an offstage presence, King Louis XIV has the ability to control and assist everyone, whether it is warranted or not.
Justinian 's Code was a set of laws set up in order to unify the empire, which was very disorganized. "Justice is the constant and perpetual wish to render every one his due ...The maxims of law are these: to live honestly, to hurt no one, to everyone his due" (The Institutes of Justinian 's Code, Document D). Justinian 's Code created the idea of laws and influenced many people such as John Locke and Thomas Jefferson. In the Declaration of Independence you can see how Justinian 's Code influenced some of the writing such as the pursuit of happiness and the idea of unalienable rights. Imagine where we would be without Justinian 's set of laws that shaped our basic idea of how laws and justice would be
Laws were as important in Hammurabi 's time as they are today because laws keep people safe and keeps everything fair. Hammurabi was a famous Babylonian king who ruled over Mesopotamia.

The rulers cared for the kingdom 's people which showed a sharp change in attitudes toward people. No longer was the ruler placed on a pedestal and treated like untouchable royalty. Treating citizens as a part of society assisted Egypt in growing and becoming successful in trade, writing and protecting itself.
Historians often credit Cleisthenes as the father of democracy, because of his devotion to a union ran by the people. Cleisthenes belonged to the Alcmaeonid Family, a powerful family at the time, with a leading role in Athenian public life. Cleisthenes was a key player in the way democracy is shaped in the west today. He saw the influence of tyranny, economically, yet his attention remained on the public rights of the people. He believed that the people should earn their wealth and respect rather than being born into it.
This proved his worthiness to being ruler by justifying his abilities to provide for and protect his empire. Since the Romans did not like that title of king, “he received the title Augustus by decree of the senate.” During his reign, Caesar accomplish countless things, which is why he is still talked highly about to this day. He repaired the conduits of aqueducts, dozens of temples, and completed the Julian forum and the basilica. He did these things because, like Qin, he loved and truly cared about his empire and wanted to see it flourish and restored; not broken and destroyed. His political authority grew stronger as the years went on therefore, he “attained supreme power by universal consent.” He did this by gaining the peoples respect.
