However in an empire as vast as the Ancient Roman was, both ideology and necessity contributed to some of the wars that were fought in particular in the more remote or wild areas in the Western part of the Empire. It should also be noted that many of the wars that took place in Ancient Rome were in fact civil wars in which various Roman leaders fought for control of the empire. Civil wars became more common as the Empire aged and this required the Empire to expand further so as to cover the increasing costs of these wars. To assist in this the Empire sought to expand further to the East but in doing so more war was fought. Given the size of the Roman Empire it was imperative that wherever possible peace should be maintained.
They fought in some of the bloodiest wars, just to gain power. Some scholars attribute this expansion to the greed and aggressiveness of people who were fond of war. It’s also said that fear drove Romans to expand the territories under their control in order to provide a buffer against attack. With allowing all these new citizens Rome had a bigger army, which was an advantage as they were conquering other territories. Rome also had the most advanced technology in the military department.
There also wasn’t enough money to make good decisions so the Empire went into debt. Also the taxes could have been too high causing a rebellion in the Provinces meaning fires in places such as; grain houses, meaning more money needed to be spent on the burnt down buildings and grain. Another factor that caused the end of the Roman Empire was problems controlling the armies. The army was an important part of the Roman Empire as they helped stop the Barbarians coming in and if they did come in and attack, they would be killing people and burning down buildings. This is how the army problem ties in with the money problem because if you didn’t have enough money to pay the army they probably would strike, if that is what you want to call it.
Under Wolsey’s influence the Star Chamber dealt with 120 cases per year compared to 12 under Henry VII. However the nobles did not appreciate this as they were often targeted by Wolsey for abusing their privileges and were often held responsible for them, “he favoured the people exceedingly…especially the poor” this created resentment among the nobles but popularity among the common man. Another change that he brought about was the shift from the usage of Common Law to the use of Civil Law, which places emphasis on a written law rather than customs. His major success with domestic, and especially financially was the shift away from the fifteenths and tenths system into a subsidy system that was described as “several centuries ahead of its time” as it accurately reflected the wealth of the taxpayers across England. Between 1513 and 1526 it raised £170,000 where as the old system only raised £90,000.
Hyperinflation happened because Germany owed so much money due to reparations of the war, it simply thought that it would just be able to print more money, but when a government prints money that it does not have the value of money decreases and prices go up. In Germany this was a huge problem as inflation was rising at astonishing rates and the effects were disastrous. Many people that had worked hard are there lives were forced to become beggars as the pensions and savings lost all value. The people that had jobs were still in disastrous positions, as their wages could not keep up with the increasing rate of inflation. People were not blaming the Kaisers war government but instead they were blaming the Weimar government, as they were the ones that had agreed to pay the war reparations in the treaty of Versailles.
To some extent, I agree with this statement as John had many faults such as, he was a bad fighter and the people of medieval England liked their kings to be great warriors. He lost all of the land in France and some sources written by barons say that it was because he was idle and was not bothering to fight. He was also over taxing the barons which obviously was not sensible as the barons in medieval times had a lot of power. If they inherited land, king John would get a large share of it, or if they didn’t want to fight in a battle, they would have to pay a large amount of money to the king. However I also disagree with this statement for as many reasons as I agree with it, one being that Johns brother was Richard the Lion Heart.
Napoleon went on by being a successful leader because; he crowned himself emperor which was a big accomplishment for him. He brought together all the legal reforms of the revolution and mixed them with other existing French laws, he then ordered officials to reorganize laws into the Civil code (Napoleonic Code) which was a new set of laws in the nation. Although people were unhappy with the current laws he created, it gave people more freedom for religion speech and thought. In 1796 napoleon won victories in multiple places including; Italy, Lodi, Castiglione, and Arcole which represented himself as a leader. Napoleon was also a strong leader because he thought of his people; he made a new program of public works that employed many.
He developed military tactics that were used many years after his reign, and helped to shape war today. People still remember Alexander the Great and the astounding impact he had on war and the way it was fought. He also successfully constructed many new landmarks in his time. He built new cities and ports that increased international trade, any of which are still around today. This influenced people’s lives through the generations because the trade brought many new customs and traditions to countries that were previously unaware of them, and the cities he created are still remembered and inhabited today.
· Romulus Augustus (c. 476)OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE A By 476 AD Germanic invasions have totally destroyed the old Roman Empire in t. The Germanic tribes had been a constant source of pressure on the empire for centuries. Many tribes had moved peacefully into the empire and had become citizens of Rome. Britain was overrun by the Angles, Saxons and Jutes. Gaul was overrun by the Franks and Burgundians. Spain was overrun by the Vandals.
Because many want to work, have family, but no degree; a lot of businesses open their doors when they can monetarily! “By setting an artificial minimum on wages, lawmakers unintentionally raise the unemployment of the most disadvantaged and make it nearly impossible for teenagers and other unskilled citizens to enter the labor pool,” says Stephen Chapman spouting openly concerning the argumentative pay raise(3 Meisner, et al). When the hourly wages go up the small business doors tend to close. Raising the minimum wage does nothing for them other than causing the cost of living to go up, and causes them to pay a little more in income tax. Just those two ideas alone put them having less money in the aftermath of the raise, than they did before this cold remnant of fairness hits too
