In 49 B.C. Ptolemy XII drove his sister and wife from the throne. Thirsty to win it back, Cleopatra used her charm to get the help of Julius Caesar who was in Egypt at the time. With his help, they removed her brother from the throne and had him killed. Cleopatra was then restored to her Egyptian throne as a joint ruler with her youngest brother Ptolemy XIII.
Her mortal sons joined the expedition of the Argonauts and the Kalydonian Boar Hunt, albeit at a very young age, while her daughters, Helene and Klytaimnestra, were wives of Trojan War heroes. In an ancient Greek vase painting, the generational gap between the sons and daughters of Leda is clearly represented—for where Helene is depicted as hatching from the egg and her fully grown brothers, standing witness. Later the Dioskouroi led an army to Athens when Theseus kidnapped their ten year old sister. Leda was usually described as a daughter of Thestios, King of Pleuron. Althaia, her sister, was the mother of the Kalydonian hero Meleagros.
Antigone; Polynices sister tries to bury him and Creon has her captured for a punishment. In ‘Antigone’ Creon is the tragic hero because he displays the elements of a Greek tragedy peripeteia, anagnorisis and hubris. Hubris is the excessive pride of arrogance; it is the quality in a character that most often brings about their downfall in tragedy. Creon portrays hubris toward several characters in the play like; Antigone and Teiresias. 'I do believe the creatures both are mad, one lately crazed, the other from her birth' (Sophocles 141) In this quote Creon is calling both Antigone and Iseme crazy for feeling sorrow for their brothers death.This displays hubris because he is being ignorant as he is filled with excessive pride.
Thinking Caligula would be able to produce an heir since he was so young, Nero had given up. All of a sudden, Caligula and his whole family were killed. Claudius, the uncle of Caligula, took over the throne and remarried to Nero’s mother. This gave Nero the ability to become leader in the later years. (Fig.1) Antium which is translated into Anzio is where Nero the emperor of Rome was born Nero started ruling Rome at the age of 17 (fig.2).
The story begins 40 years after 323 BC, around 283 BC, with Ptolemy I Soter, who narrates throughout the film. We see Alexander's daily life and the strained relationship between his parents. Alexander grows up with his mother Olympias and his tutor Aristotle, where he finds interest in love, honour, music, exploration, poetry and military combat.

During her settlement as the father of Kao Tsung’s Concubine to Kao Tsung’s Empress, Wu campaigned in the elimination her opposition and promotion her supporters. At the end, the Elder Statesmen of the Court were decimated. Despite the sinister overtones, there is ingenuity shown even from her career’s beginning. Charisma and persuasion shown, was reflected in Wu’s rule of the people of China as her later policies aimed to gain their support as she knew theirs would trump the ones in the royal court. This mindset outlines her as being very capable in the royal court’s politics.
The following year he was nominated to be the new Flamen Dialis, high priest of Jupiter, as Merula, the previous incumbent, had died in Marius's purges. Since the holder of that position not only had to be a patrician but also be married to a patrician, he broke off his engagement to Cossutia, a girl of wealthy equestrian family he had been betrothed to since boyhood, and married Cinna's daughter Cornelia.
In doing so, it becomes clear that Tsurayuki views women as inherently inferior to men in literature and thus in society. In Heian period Japan, language was very delineated; men spoke and wrote in a certain script, and women spoke and wrote in another. Specifically, men studied Chinese and “official documents were always written in Chinese” (Chizuko 298). Due to the fact the women were not taught Chinese nor were they allowed to learn it, amongst the court a writing style called kana developed. Kana was separately feminine and yet inferior to Chinese.
Different Views on Gender Issues Liberal feminists argue that our society holds the false belief that women are, by nature, less intellectually and physically capable than men, it tends to discriminate against women. In order to challenge the inequality, liberal feminists work hard to emphasize the equality of men and women and trying to achieve equal opportunities.

Structural functionalists fail to catch the trend that more and more women are entering the previous male-dominated industries and structuralists should not view females as puppets who do not their own wills.
Beginning with Bassianus, the audience witnesses his decline as the throne is taken from him and given to his brother Saturninus due to primogeniture. In many ways the play is (although not solely), a plea for elective rather than aristocratic succession in Government. Bassianus’ failure to ascend the throne is the first act depicting the decline of Rome (as he is better suited to rule than Saturninus in every way but through heritage), also set in motion the beginning of the implosion of the Andronici. The action taken by Titus cost Bassianus his future wife, Lavinia, as the new Emperor vows to take her as his wife. Martius argues: “Thou art a Roman be not barbarous,” In protest at Saturninus’ decision to make Lavinia his wife and also of Titus’ murder of his own son, Mutius, for
