The Universal Ruler, Genghis Khan, stood on the battlefield with the rising sun illuminating the millions of imbrued bodies of the dead. Khan, his features defined with pride and triumph, snatches yet another victory from the hands of his foes. Genghis Khan’s unyielding determination was of a man who would never stop until the world was under one rule, his rule. Despite his time being so short, his legacy would outlive him even after the Mongol Empire fell. Genghis Khan, their most famous leader, led them not just to victory, but also assisted in the development of our world.
The Mongols were united by Genghis Khan. With him as their leader they went on to build a massive empire by conquering kingdoms far and wide. He was a fierce ruler but treated his people fairly, for the most part. They built the largest contiguous empire because of their level of skill as warriors, the trade routes they created and strong leadership and laws. The Mongols were a fierce tribe lead by Genghis Khan, a great warrior and leader.
Genghis Khan Renown for being a ruthless, feared military leader Genghis Khan is more recognized for his military victories than his intelligence. Genghis Khan was capable of being vicious enough to be victorious in battle, yet, clever enough to rule over a diverse empire larger than Rome. Genghis Khan was both a feared military conqueror and an intelligent administrator. However, his intelligence was the most vital attribute in shaping the modern world through law, religious tolerance, and military. Genghis Khan’s intelligence allowed for him to create The Great Law of Genghis Khan.
Is Beowulf a Hero? The poem Beowulf, tells of great the great undertakings of Beowulf, a man who has defeated many ruthless monsters and seeks fame and glory. If we take Beowulf and compare him to the Anglo-Saxon ideal hero, Beowulf fills all the necessary requirements but, when compared to modern day standards, Beowulf doesn’t quite make the cut. In the modern day, selflessness is the ideal. It is evident from the beginning of the poem that Beowulf is meant to be the hero.
In Ancient India, the people named their flag after Asoka. He did great things for the Mauryan Empire that gave a good ending, but were the means of the ending just? Asoka ruled Ancient India and changed the history of it doing good and bad things for himself but for his empire. Was it being Ruthless or Enlightened? His responsibility for many deaths, his wanting of unfair wars, the unjust laws all clearly imply that Asoka is a Ruthless Conqueror.
To them, power is everything and for one person to attain so much power, one must become a hero and perform heroic deeds. An Anglo-Saxon hero is perfectly portrayed by Beowulf who contains values of Anglo-Saxons like bravery, loyalty, honor and the willingness to risk his life for the greater good of his people. The latter is primarily why he gains the trust of his people which is why he claims the title of King and therefore gets hold of power. While Beowulf is the symbol and representation of heroes in Anglo Saxons, we have multiple personalities who we consider as heroes. People who work, people who dream, people who act.
Peter the Great was someone that I believed deserved his title of Great as leader and a King. I do not think that he was a great man. He was a good ruler because of his changes to the country and the modernization of it. He was not a great man because of his hatred for and neglect first wife and his oldest son. If I judge him on his actions as a king I would say that he does deserve the title of great but if I look at his personal life I would say that he is the complete opposite of great.
Even when Beowulf passed away in his last battle, it was told that fate determined to be that way, it was his time to go. The narrator describes a good king by saying, "He ruled lands on all sides: wherever the sea would take them his soldiers sailed, returned with tribute and obedience. There was a brave king!" (8-12). What the narrator is saying is that a good king has thanes that would respect him and obey him, and Baewulf showed this characteistics of a good king.These qualities allow him to become an honored king, yet they also lead to his death.
At first, he second guessed the bloody murder of his king. However, his wife, Lady Macbeth, talked him into this by calling him a coward and asking if he was a man. To prove to her that he was a strong individual, he followed through with the act of killing King Duncan. This confirms that the pressure of others persuaded Macbeth’s actions. Macbeth wanted the blame to be placed on someone other than himself so the people showed loyalty to him as the new king.
