The Roman army was defeated in humiliating ways by Spartacus, his leader was inspirational and his way to get out of the most impossible situations had the Roman army dumb founded. Crassus crucified the 6000 gladiators and the slaves. The rebels eventuated to around
Historical Accuracy of “Gladiator” The movie “Gladiator” attempts to portray the life of a warrior who is made to fight for the entertainment of the citizens of Rome. This film came out in the year 2000 and was directed by Ridley Scott. This was a feature film that won five Academy Awards including Best Picture of 2000. Although this movie is only loosely based on actual historical events, it does give a decent portrayal of the idea of gladiators in early Roman times. On the other side of things this movie does embellish on history and does have its obvious inaccuracies.
They sensed military flaws and began to found small kingdoms, like Gaul, Spain. This was the commencement of the Germanic kingdoms; many of which were inside Rome's borders. The empire was becoming less and less structured and, eventually, the Germans began to proclaim themselves more and more. Political: One of the biggest complications of the ancient Roman Empire was selecting a new emperor. Unlike Greece, where shifting may not have been easy but was at least constant, the Romans never planned an operational method to decide how new emperors would be designated.
Most people believe that Biggie had a lot to do with it but the murder still remains unsolved until this day. March 9th 1997 Notorious B.I.G was shot and killed when he decided to leave his own East Coast to go to the West Coast in California where Tupac ran things. Biggies murder also remains unsolved but most believe it was retaliation and Tupac’s gang members where just waiting for the right time to get back at Biggie. Soon after the death of Tupac Shakur the record label company he was signed to folded as Tupac’s mother Afeni Shakur sued them for cheating Tupac out of millions of dollars. Bad Boy Records still lives on today as one of the most popular record labels around, although the violence and rivalry still goes on today people look back on what happened between Tupac and Biggie and try to keep the hip hop scene clean but there will always be that hatred toward the other for killing there icon.
Was it the Lack of Military Protection, Foreign Invasions from every corner of the Empire, or just the fact that Emperors changed like someone changes Clothes? Beginning in 400 CE, protection needed was abandoned. Before this time, Soldiers, more commonly known as “Footsoldiers” wore Helmets and Breastplates as armor and a line of defense, against their Enemies various weapons. Once Ground Drills stopped, armors customary worn grew heavy, since the Soldiers rarely to never put it on. First, the request to lose Breastplates was put in, and then Helmets joined
Another example would be when Augustus’s grandson was assassinated while Tiberius was in power. Even though Tiberius knew about the staff-officer killing Agrippa Postumus (Augustus’s grandson), Tiberius didn’t say anything to the senate. Instead, he pretended that the orders came from Augustus, who was alleged to have instructed the colonel in charge to kill Agrippa Postumus as soon as Augustus himself was dead. Even though both of the stories have a different view point, the overall point of the two stories is similar. In both stories, the government does something that is unjust to the people.
Alexander’s Empire was even more evanescent, however, because his military victories were never followed by effective planning for the inevitable transition from battlefield to administering law and order. Often, as was the case for the U.S., a state rises to primacy through events that were not fully planned by its leaders. Throughout the 19th century, Americans assumed that the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans provided an impassible barrier to any enemy attacks, permitting a foreign policy of “no entangling alliances.” Our war with Spain concerned threats on the North American continent rather than the European balance of power. American entry in the First World War, while hotly opposed by some, was seen by Woodrow Wilson as a way to “Make the World Safe for Democracy” – i.e., to preserve political principles favorable to our trade and economic interests – not to embark on a permanent role in European power politics. When Hitler’s rise to power and military conquests of Czechoslovakia and France renewed the threat of German hegemony in Europe, strong feelings – symbolized by the “America First” movement
Even though the movie is based on the story of Beowulf, The Thirteenth Warrior still leaves a few events out and adds some occurrences. The most important is the lack of mythological/religious creatures attacking. In the cinematic adventure, multiple “not-so-evolved” people were attacking the Danes. Grendel, instead of being the demon in the poem, was the chief of the tribe in the movie. It also out-casted the entire dragon slaying sequence.
Though, the story’s ending is ironic due to the sniper recognizing that the enemy killed was his brother. The greater irony is that all the sniper’s enemies of the Free State happen to be his brothers, for they were all once together as one army. In a deeper perspective, all men are brothers being that they are descendants of Adam and Eve. O’Flaherty uses symbolism in regards to the sniper and his brother to any war where one person killed another. It illustrates how despicable the human race can be when one member of it takes the life of
Both uncles fail to slaughter their brother the first time. However, they do succeed in killing the king on their second attempt. Scar and Claudius are also very sneaky and conniving to all. They both put on a phony and welcoming face to acquire what they desire. In the end, both Scar and Claudius end up dying the same way as they killed their brother.
