His attempt to revive the Roman Empire was a successful one, both in terms of power and longevity. Justinian’s legacy would be that of the most successful Emperor of the Byzantine Empire. The empire expanded under Justinian because of his ability to pick exceptional advisors. The men that he gave power to owed this to him, and were very loyal. Despite many periods of financial and military crisis where the empire faced threats from all sides, it always managed to come through, often due to the Emperor’s advisors.
A brilliant economic system was brought forth that is still used today in all parts of the world. Colbert was the inventor of this system, called Mercantilism, and he created it to bring wealth to the French and his king. The goal that Colbert aimed to do was to acquire gold for France.

Caesar’s reputation as a General, who is considered to be more prominent than Pompey the great, was not comprehended until the Gallic Wars. Instead he was known to be one of the ablest orators and “most adroit politicians of the day”[F.B Marsh] and his military skills were most likely not rated very highly.

Britain was entering the industrial revolution at the time, industry rose up and trade would boom due to expansion of the industries at home and abroad, the advancements of technology meant that Britain was going through a natural change that arguably Pitt was able to captain through leading to better fortunes. The natural opposition from the Whig party against the king led by Charles Fox meant that Pitt naturally had the Kings support against any opposition which could be thrown at him, the king would back him up. The American Revolution and his lack of connection to it meant that he was seen as a new politician not one of the previously failed governments who’s lack of control and rule in a situation. And lastly the regency crisis of 1788 meant that Pitt could use this to gain favour with the king and gather support from his own party and draw it away from the opposition.

This was one of his greatest feats because they became a force to be reckoned with. The increased military provided more than security for the nation but allowed them to expand. Other reforms included the increase of trade through changing the no foreign trade policy to becoming world sea trade center and his reforms that set in motion the application of western mercantilism to stimulate agriculture, industry and commerce which helped to make him a remembered as a great leader. His active foreign policy was meant to increase contact between foreign countries all while battling in a war that would not conclude for twenty-one years. I think that although Peter the Great had some controversial reforms, in the areas of religion, fashion, and social laws I believe that his most successful attempts to westernize Russia were the reorganization of the government, the establishment of the army and navy, increasing of trade, and active foreign policy; making him the greatest tsar’s in Russian

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.
