Saying that he does not deserve this is as if almost to say he did not exist. Hitler deserves his reputation without a doubt, even though Hitler’s reputation is a horrible one, why can’t Alexander receive his, much more it is not a negative one, one that killed a mass of people. Now maybe Alexander did kill many people in his time of reign, but most of those kills were because of war. Hitler’s reason was for an evil hatred of the Jewish community. I think that the idea that he does not deserve his reputation is solely for argument, because some people love the feeling of making other people angry.
Napoleon Bonaparte is easily the most eager, intelligent, charismatic, successful, and hardest working leader of all time. Napoleon was the most detail oriented and dominant person I knew. Due to these traits he became a phenomenally successful leader. Napoleon was also very charismatic. He always had a special charm, which resulted in him climbing the “military ladder” so quickly, so to speak.
Absolute Monarchy Absolute Monarchy is a system of government in which the ruling monarch has unlimited power. Louis was a great absolute monarch, and there are many reasons to prove it. For one, his childhood really helped him. The Fronde was a series of terrifying riots. This scared Louis XIV a lot, but it also benefited him.
Macbeth simply just let his ambition blind him. Ozymandias has the same mindset with that feeling of insuperability. “Look on my works ye, might and despair” (Ozymandias 11). This quote demonstrated the foolish arrogance of Ozymandias, and also holds some irony because everything around the statue or the so called “works” is in ruins. He wants everyone to know what he has done to show what a powerful man
Both of them have no good reason for sentencing people to death but more just want it to happen because they have the power to do it as Giles Corey points out in “The Crucible”. “Say nothin' more, John. He's only playin' you! He means to hang us all! (Miller 91) It is clear that Danforth has an absolutely senseless reason for killing people because he chooses to believe that witchcraft is real like Hitler chooses to believe that Germans are a superior race and Jews cause all of the worlds problems.
Julius Caesar was one of the most influential and memorable leaders in all of recorded history; he may have been the greatest man of all time. Caesars self-promotion style enabled him to have a swift rise to power; Caesar didn’t always follow the rules, and there's no denying that he left a trail of enemies in his past, but his rise to power was spectacular at that. Unlike many Roman Leaders, Caesar proved to his people that he was the best that could have been; fighting in the front lines with his army showed that he was confident as well as a great tactician. His urge for such a quick rise to power brings forth the question of whether his intentions were all for the good of Rome. It was no coincidence that Caesar ended up with the power and position, with him planning and constructing his future using his nature of a tactician for creating a tactical pathway.
And by which he stimulated the development of gold and silver coinage on the Lydian’s model. Conversely, Cyrus the great had reasonable values in high morals and ethical background he allowed in his empire that led him to score a high rank among the greatest of all time leaders.

I happened to pick the meanest of jerks. He was controlling and cruel. Probably due to low self esteem, fed off of others' pain; he liked to be in charge. Thought by everyone else as the perfect guy, behind closed doors was a different story. Harsh words came out of his mouth, banned from any guy friends
Like those leaders he was an authoritarian leader and a dictator whose skill was matched by his ambition, one of those who did not know when the possible ended and the impossible began. He was a ruthless person and would tolerate no argument, which produced a cadre of Marshals capable of carrying out orders well but having never learnt to think and act for them. This was to prove disastrous as at Waterloo and in the later stages of the Napoleonic wars. Wellington said that a wave of Napoleon hat was worth 40,000 men on the battlefield but he was just one man who could not be everywhere at once, as the Empire was faced with war on several fronts, Napoleon could not be everywhere. Napoleon was a tremendous innovator and administrator.
Al Gore’s effort to save the climate was a failure, yet his pride refused to give in. Al Gore disrespected many other political figures and caused disgust throughout America.

The feeling of superiority in an overbearing manner infected many famous figures throughout history.
