To answer this question, one must look closely at the people that made up the mighty power that was Athens. How does the individual relate to the citizen in the context of democracy? Democracy was the political system of Athens where everyone was equal under the law (excluding slaves). According to the law, every adult free male had the right to vote and to hold office. Aristotle records the origins of this equality.
The founding fathers and the ancient Athenians also seem to share some of the same successes and failures when it comes to establishing democracy. In ancient Athens only free males of Athens were considered citizens. This excluded all women, slaves, and even men who had a foreign-born parent, which limited participation in the assembly.

In addition to this, the city state of Athens also did not always have efficient war plans, or tactics. The Spartans however, made full use of their some odd 8000 soldiers by devising clever war tactics. For example, the Spartans were the first to perfect the military technique known as the ‘Phalanx’. This technique utilized every soldier by arranging them so they form a horizontal line. In the line, the soldiers stood next to each other, using their shields to block the person to the left.
He also removed disreputable members, and in 18 BC, more than 300 senators were removed. Yet there was an unbalance in power, for Augustus carefully kept in his own control the ultimate sanction of the army by remaining responsible for those provinces needing a military presence, including Syria, Spain and Gaul. Augustus was a manipulative man, and his reforms were often aimed at accumulating more personal power, as Wallace-Hadrill argues, his power base was resignation, and he increased his hold over Rome by deviously manipulating the senate and the people. However, he was successful in establishing new order and contentment amongst members of the government, and according to Scullard, the Senate as a whole was restored to a position of
They say that the Spartans had the best army in Greece; their bravery was legendary but actually just how good was the Spartan army? For the young Spartan boy it was a requirement to join the army and fight to defend their city. As a young boy the Spartans were trained up to become part of the great army.

Greek people were very polytheistic and believed in a plethora of gods who were believed to live on Mount Olympus. Unlike a lot of other newly originating civilizations, Greece had a very well developed political system. Since ancient Greece consisted of several hundreds of independent city-states (poleis) which happened to be a situation unlike most other civilizations were made up of, each polis was governed by its own individual governor. They may have all been run differently, but all of the poleis shared a common religion, language, and culture.
Also, the Spartans were rich because owning property and passing money down their families made for future generations to have money  the government of the Spartans was of an oligarchical rule. This meant that only few ruled; which meant either the rich or kings ruled. All free men could vote in their assembly on many issues. This resembled a demokratia. The poor could vote for the ephors, which theoretically, would run Sparta.
This is an example of how Louis so strictly controlled his nobles, many called Versailles a “gilded cage,” because of how the nobles were so enclosed in such a beautiful place. Many of the taxes from the commoners went directly to the construction and well-keeping of versailles, this obviously upset the citizens in the town. Despite Louis’ strange requests and poor control of the economy, he was an excellent war strategist.

By the end, the numbers in his army sky-rocketed from 180,000 troops, to 450,000, proving that Louis XIV was a very successful war leader.
