All empires in history had a high in their history but they all eventually came to their demise. The Ottoman Empire and the Ming Dynasty both had ways they gained, consolidated and maintained their power while they were at their highest point. They had significant leaders that lead to these successful points. The Ottoman Empire covered parts of Asia, Europe and Africa controlled by their leader named Suleiman.
Between 200 and 1200 the Mauryan and Byzantine empires both had political leaders and noble classes that expanded empires and spread their religions. The Mauryans developed an elaborate bureaucracy that collected taxes from farming and had networks of people to spy on its own people and enforce obedience. Unlike the Mauryans, the Byzantines created a system of feudalism and used Eastern Orthodoxy to legitimize the rulership of an emperor. A large imperial army consisting of war elephants and cavalry secured power for the Mauryans, while military effectiveness led to the rise of the Carolingian empire and Vikings helped with spread of trade.

Ever since the beginning of time, nations have risen to become glorious empires and then are reduced back to their humble state. These countries have had the pride of dominating and influencing many varied civilizations yet their pride soon was reduced to woe as they lost hold on their supremacy. Yet between these prominent nations ' peak of power and their tragic downfalls, therein lies several reasons for their inevitable collapse. And considering that history tends to repeat itself in many forms, these distressing reasons for ruin can be found throughout two of the greatest empires in history, Persia and Rome. Although there are certainly major differences between the Roman and the Persian empires, their declines are both results of weak and corrupt rulers, issues dealing with the economy, loss of scientific advancements, and military complications.
Introduction The harem is perhaps one of the most well known trappings of imperial power in the Near East, with its Western connotation arising largely from the Ottoman Empire. The concept of the harem deals with gender segregation and royal power, drawing from an archaeological and textual record that often leaves the investigating party wanting for more evidence. Several structures within Mesopotamian palaces of the first millennium BCE have long been identified as harems, specifically—and by name—the southeastern sector of the palace at Persepolis. This notion has been challenged by some scholars as flawed or entirely inaccurate for a myriad of reasons.
Human history came about differently all over the world for the last 13,000 years because of simply of the environment in which each continent is located. Many people believe it is because of biological differences among the people around the world, but now we know that isn’t correct. The environment of each continent means different forms of language, diseases, political, religions, ect.

Throughout history, humans have invaded and conquered the lands of other human beings, with only the interest of themselves in mind. Invasions ranging from the time of the Persian Empire to the settling of the New World exemplify the maltreatment of other humans for personal gain as a recurring process. At the beginning of our cycle of destruction are the Persian Empire’s invasions. In order to acquire the largest empire and increase their number of trade routes, the Persians continuously took on conquests to take land from other empires using brute force, like they did with the Egyptians in 525 BC for their prime real estate.
