In another case, Cassius described that when Caesar was ill, he cared for him and fluffed his pillows. But Caesar never thanked him at all.
The failure of foreign policy in the years 1514-1525 can be attributed to many things. The combination of Henry's isolation from European affairs and the fact that his attempts to raise tax were ultimately unpopular failures, meant that he had no way to impose himself upon Europe. Even when he did manage to scrape together the finances needed for a strong foreign policy his reliance on his allies led to disaster. As soon as Henry took the throne in 1509, it was obvious that he was a king that wanted to fight a war. However, wars generally led to very expensive costs to the country.
This shows that he is highly unpopular with lawyers as he believes if they do not do their job properly they should be fined however lawyers are the only category which state that he is un-liked compared to the ‘whole people’. Sources 1 and 2 both agree that he had a lot of power over the nobility and they were not fond of that. Source 1 state’s ‘his hostility towards...nobles’ this shows that Wolsey was aggressive towards the nobles which created ‘great irritation’. Wolsey saw himself above the nobility so he did not give them any respect and believed they could not do their job properly. Source 2 agrees that he had a lot of power of the nobility as he ‘shakes them by the ear’ this quote show that Skelton was taking the mick out of the nobility for not standing up to Wolsey which shows the amount of power he had over them but also that the nobles did actually fear Wolsey.
The government could not control all these invasions, so this was another component that helped the fall of the Roman Empire. Document 5 shows bias because it blames the fall of the civilization on internal decay. This is significant because if a very well organized government that had been able to keep order throughout such a large empire could no longer do it, then this meant nobody else could. All of these political
Creon is compared to “a politician without the capacity to be a statesman, because he cannot resist the temptations of power” (Winnington-Ingram). Creon struggles with greed for money and lust for power. He is an unjust lawmaker as well as a strict and ruthless law enforcer. This causes the people of Thebes to live in fear of Creon. Creon asks Antigone if she attempted to bury her brother Polynices.
This led to a very corrupt government with many different views. Also, the unstable leadership caused the fall of the Roman Empire. Without a strict and passionate ruler, Rome had no chance. They needed someone who stuck by them and agreed with the rest of the government. Unfortunately, that was not the case.

The government in the city state of Sparta was controlled by an oligarchy and was held by a group of five men called ephors. Citizens didn't have the priority to say much in the decisions that were made by the government but at that time this was a better government. For a more disciplined military approach they had to give up comfort and culture, and this eventually turned them into deadly war machines. Due to this other nations and city states were frightened of them they would not attack them even though the Spartan army consisted of eight thousand men. However the Spartan men would start their training at the age of seven and they were thought to be tough and self sufficient.
Nicholas II was the last tsar of the Romanov dynasty, and his own arrogance and incompetence was a key factor in what led him to that title. His decision to maintain an autocratic government, fight in the Russo-Japanese war, and, ultimately, drag Russia into World War I, proved he was not fit to rule, and his actions led to the destruction of his dynasty. In these ways, Nicholas II, while faced with many problems, may have survived had he not ruled the way he did. Nicholas II was an implacable autocrat, and his fear of change alienated the Russian people from their leader. When Nicholas was young, he witnessed his grandfather, Alexander II, being assassinated by terrorists.
Caesar was not a strong enough leader for Rome, a booming city that was quickly accumulating knowledge and wealth. He needed to be stopped before he turned Rome into a monarchy, or even a dictatorship. Brutus did not kill Caesar out of jealousy or hatred. In fact, he considered Caesar to be a good friend of his, while Caesar returned these feelings. Despite this, Brutus was more loyal to his country, the land he calls home, and the people with whom he shares it with.
