Should Alexander The Great Be Considered “The Great”? Ubaid Thoophany 5/11/15 Alexander the great should be considered the great because of all the great things he did. He made his kingdom overpowered, and built a name for himself and his people, which is a very brave and hard thing to do. First off, he ruled his kingdom Macedonia, well and helped it by making the right choices for his empire. Also, he fought in many wars with such bravery to prove himself worthy and determined to be known as “The Great”.
As a great leader himself, came a great country. France became a super world power during these times and during the reign of Louis XIV. After the Thirty Years War, France had already been benefited and militaristically. When Louis XIV became the ruler of France, he continued these benefits and expanded upon them. He faced war when he knew he had too and gained power from each war he did face.
Henry VII Essay 18/5/2012 I think that Henry VII made a great leader, looking at all the key achievements of his here it makes me think that there can’t have been many kings as powerful, clever, and strong as hi. He was great militarily and financially but it is obvious that overall what he found easiest was being a great politician. His achievements of making alliances through marriage show that he must have been an extremely persuasive man to have so many relatives married to princes, princesses, queens and kings in other countries are proof of him being almightily powerful, possibly to the extent that he would never have been able to have his empire struck down. He was invincible in every way and form. Militarily he must have been strong because he kept on repelling off rebelling hordes and to take the English throne in the first place he must have had great tactics, as at the battle of Bosworth he was outnumbered and outgunned in the first hour of the battle yet
France was brought to glory by its wars and art galleries and the Palace of Versailles, but at the same time all of these things took its toll on the highly taxed poor as they tried to support the bankrupt country. His government was nothing more than a cast of actors in the play of Louis' beliefs. The fact of the matter is this; although the result in the long term may have been a betterment of France, the only reason anything was done, was to stroke and coddle Louis XIV's massive ego. One of Louis' greatest endeavours was the constant
He led his troops arduous war that resulted in the establishment of the United States as a free nation. His capabilities as a strong leader enabled him to gain the support and trust not only of his troops, but also of the nation (Mott, 1). He was indispensible in the actions that established
Owen Connelly’s book “Blundering to Glory” is about a brilliant man without limits, having a gift from God never seen before, the greatest commander of all time…Napoleon Bonaparte. “Blundering to Glory” goes into great details covering Napoleon’s childhood to his quick rise to fame. Napoleon Bonaparte had a great impact on most of Europe. He was a “scrambler” with no sense of when to stop. The author also puts a lot of emphasis on Napoleon’s mistakes or “blunders.” He had many victories because he never stopped attacking his enemies by using the ignorance of his enemy’s commanders.
The goods are overpriced, which forces the two cent earning workers to buy from them or waste precious fuel by driving to town and returns their paycheck to the landowner. Not only are the big landowners just greedy about driving wages down or getting it back, when they have an excess amount of product they burn it.  They do not feed the starving, or help the sick, or aid the dying. They are too greedy, the landowners need to keep the circle of wealth around them. With the excess food their workers are not hungry, and will demand higher wages.
Theodore Roosevelt’s time of being president seemed so powerful to me. He knew what he was doing as president and was a strong leader. He solved many problems and won many wars. How can we say no to “Teddy”? He was a succeeding and wonderful president and that’s what I liked about him.
All in all, Maria Theresa strongly limited the nobility’s influence, both over the peasants and over the government. During Louis XIV’s reign of France, the nobility of the state was even more so affected than that of Russia’s. Louis complicated and flooded their lives with great parties, gossip and other preoccupations, with which to keep them busy. He was said to be the first ruler with complete domestication of the noble class, which means that he controlled the nobility like one would control a pet. Louis’ state of France complete with possibly the most ornate palace ever built, Versailles, truly showed that an absolutist state ruler was able to rule anything and everything, even the most elitist
Many look to George Washington for the great things he accomplished in his lifetime. Winning the War for American Independence, being the first president, and shaping the way the Constitution was written and how the federal government was formed are all attributable to him. However, from his youth, he was a man who focused on the little details in his life predicted his behavior in large situations as they were presented to him. The mentality and experience he had from such a young age made him into the great leader he was. People who were under him as president must have enjoyed having a loyal educated president who knew what he was doing.
