He always had a special charm, which resulted in him climbing the “military ladder” so quickly, so to speak. He was also a very manipulative person, but not in the horrendous way.

Out of all the positive traits that made Napoleon successful, I truly believe that it was his overall intelligence that provided him such great accomplishments.

Here it can be argued that he is a feminist because he has made a woman the main character instead of the stereotypically strong and brave male as the main character. The marriage scene is a very important scene in the play. This is where we see the Duchess being very controlling and powerful and Antonio as a weaker and shy character. Donne could be seen as a feminist here because he is making the woman take control instead of having the male dominate everything, as in that time period they usually did. Women were seen as a lower rank than men and so that’s why the Duchess being the strong and powerful main character is significant.
Finally Genghis Khans Ruthlessness made him unquestioned and unopposed as a leader and followed by his men. These aspects of Genghis Khans leadership skills made the Mongol Empire the success that it was. Primarily the way Genghis Khan organized and equipped his army gave the Mongols the ability to overpower the resisting forces and empires. It was the decisions of Genghis Khan that made the Mongols the unstoppable force in history that had military power that wasn’t rivalled until the twentieth century. The armies of Genghis Khan were trained to be incredibly skilled, even for their time period; they had mastered the use of their most important weapons; their horses and their bows.

Bianca struggles to fight for the love and respect she thinks she deserves from her partner, Cassio. A clear sign of Cassio’s authority is Bianca’s obedience towards him. After a quick phase of Bianca’s jealousy of another possible mistress, Cassio demands her to get over it and leave him be; she then says, “Tis very good. I must be circumstanced.” The way she almost immediately obeys his commands evidently gives him the power in their relationship. Throughout the play, Cassio who merely views her as an instrument for his bodily pleasures is constantly playing Bianca.
This would relate to Queen Elizabeth I in Shakespearean times. Queen Elizabeth was well known for also being ruthless and head-strong. She was also one of the most desired queens, however she would deny with the principle of “being married
Women spend tremendous amounts of money on obtaining the ideal look designated by the media.

Of the grandeur of Lancelot, Derek Brewer says, "In the portrayal of Lancelot we generally recognize a vein of extravagance. He is the most obsessive of lovers, as he is the most beloved of ladies, and the greatest of fighters" (8). To achieve this feat, Malory has molded Lancelot to fit the idea of the perfect knight and the perfect lover. The perfect knight is defined by the Chivalric Code set out in Le Morte D'Arthur as "only to fight in just causes, at all times to be merciful, and at all times to put the service of ladies foremost" (Malory 69). In this code, Lancelot is to be found exemplary.
