One theory is that King Tut was murdered. If he was murdered, the motive was most likely centered on greed or the changing environment Akhenaten (King Tut’s father) had created before his death. But who would kill the King? Some believe that a few of his servant may have just ending his life at the early age of 19. Just being Akhenaten’s son had to have been difficult for a young boy.
This means that the gods had key roles in the fates of mankind, an idea which is hinted heavily upon during the course of the play. The title character of Aeschylus’ production, Agamemnon, faces various challenges which ultimately end rather poorly with Clytaemnestra organising his assassination. It could be argued that this was destined to happen from the very beginning of the sequence of events due to the family curse that circles his house. Atreus’s house was known for the curse that seemed to pass down through the generations of his sons which involved terrible things, ie murder happening between the children and the fathers. Atreus himself was involved in the tragedy in which he murdered his brother’s children and served them up as a dish to eat.
Because of the uprising led by Brutus’ father, Cassius and Brutus conspire to do the same thing. However, back then was a lot different from the current day that Brutus lives in. When his father killed the man, the nation rejoiced but that was before they grew attached to the guy who was trying to be crowned king. In the present day it is different because a lot of
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.
John heard of this and in his fury had Geoffrey imprisoned in chains, clad in a cope made of lead and starved. Geoffrey died an agonising death.’ I don’t think this source is a trustworthy source because he can’t tell us the name or the whereabouts of the sheriff. Roger tells us that John let a robber that murdered a priest go because it was an enemy of his but government records show that John ordered anyone killing a priest
His father had killed him and served his flesh to the gods, hoping to fool the gods. The gods punished Tantalus and restored Pelops to life. Demeter, who had eaten part of shoulder blade, replaced it with ivory shaped like his shoulder blade. When Pelops reached manhood, he heard that King Oenomaüs (Oenomaus) of Pisa, the son of Ares and Asterope, challenged his suitors to a chariot race, offering his daughter Hippodaemia's hand in marriage as the prize. However, any suitors who lose the race against the king also forfeit his life.
A king implies that sovereignty no longer lies with the people, but with the king. Sometimes it lies with the king's family, too, but that depends on whether you've got a hereditary monarchy or not. Betrayal: • Julius Caesar knew a guy called Brutus because he had an affair with Brutus' mother and Brutus would sometimes go to Julius' house. A rumor then began that Brutus wanted to kill a politician called Pompey, Julius helped Brutus out saying it was all a lie. Then in 44BC (the year Julius was killed), Brutus was part of a plot to murder Julius.
“Manson and the Family were hoping to place blame away from their mission of salvation-through-murder” and the following night the Family members killed prominent businessman Leno LaBianca and his wife Rosemary in the same fashion in their home (Charles Manson 2). Manson later informed authorities that he had staged these gruesome murders to launch an apocalypse called, “helter skelter”. The crimes the family committed were designed to implicate black militants, thereby provoking a white reaction. These events would then lead to a “race war” and the war would end with the Manson Family as rulers of the earth. This radical notion that Manson and his family concluded was something that was beyond the Hippie’s doctrine of “freedom”.
This means Macbeth had no other reason for killing Duncan other than wanting to. At this point in the play, Macbeth’s desire for power begins to affect the way he acts and the choices he makes. Next in line for the throne after Duncan’s death would’ve been one of his sons, Malcolm, but he fled with his brother Donalbain after their father’s death. However, the witches prophesized that Banquo would produce a line of kings, so Macbeth hired a group of murderers to kill Banquo and his son, Fleance. Macbeth would not let anyone get
Bobby Zhu Ms. Cruze English 2 January 4, 2012 Macbeth Although Macbeth was loyal to his wife, King and country, he became immoral after his wife force him to kill his own king, which made him feel guilty and influenced him to kill his best friend Banquo and Macduff’s family to cover his guilt from killing the king. Macbeth was immoral when he killed the king when he was at rest “I have done the deed. Didst thou not near a noise?”(65).This quote shows Macbeth has killed the king and asked his wife if she heard the violent noises. Macbeth did not only just kill the king but killed the king while he was asleep. This shows Macbeth is starting to act immoral.
