In my own opinion Alexander does deserve his reputation because he did this mostly by himself. He conquered the entire known world, with the army that he established because he had the resources and the ideals, to be a successful leader. He managed himself in a well manner with all of his soldiers and even though all feared him, all also loved him. It is beyond me to say that Alexander does not deserve what he accomplished. Saying that he does not deserve this is as if almost to say he did not exist.
He was an all-around successful man in his culture. Okonkwo was strong, masculine and also very violent. However, Nwoye did not take on any of the characteristics of his father. When the Western missionaries came to the villages, some people accepted them and welcomed them while others disagreed with them. To some the missionaries had no impact on.
Theseus, unlike the many other mythological heroes, was not a god. He had no supernatural power or strength, but what he did have was courage and compassion for his fellow man, for he was a mortal man himself. His father, Aegeus, was the king of Athens. Though he did not grow up with his father, he longed to know him from the stories his mother Aethra told him. After Theseus was old enough and proved himself strong enough by lifting a huge boulder to uncover gifts his father left for him, he went on a journey to find and meet his father.
People who expressed negative thoughts about Peter's decisions were often executed before they had a chance to gain followers and rebel against the Tsar. The Streltsy, bushy musketeers and pike men, Russia's first professional soldiers, were often found at the receiving end of harsh sentences. Peter the Great was bad in that he was very cruel to the people of Russia. He heavily taxed everyone, so the serfs had to pay taxes for themselves and their owners. In
How extraordinary were Cicero’s achievements in the years 76BC to 63 BC? Marcus Tillius Cicero. We know more about this man than any other in ancient history. Partially on account of his natural abilities and partly on account of the times in which he lived, has left a name associated with some of the most important events in the history of the world. With his brilliant oratory skills, it is no coincidence that Cicero climbed to the top of the Cursus Honorum in the years of 76-63BC despite his lack of noble support and “new man” status.
Odysseus may look like a hero although he is not very herolike. In “The Odyssey” Odysseus is perceived to be a hero.He was quite the opposite of what a hero is. He was very arrogant and too proud of himself, he was also really curious and had to find out things that did not matter. When he landed on the island of Polyphemus the cyclops, he very easily could have gotten supplies and escaped with his full crew uninjured. Instead curiousity got to him and he had to
Neither was he descended from the aristocracy. He did not seek fame and fortune. His role as freedom fighter for his people was thrust upon him by circumstances beyond his control. Nonetheless, Wallace rose to the occasion and exhibited qualities which anyone aspiring to a position of leadership would be wise to emulate. Wallace proved himself before he became leader.
Pompous: The prince was a pompous fool. He was arrogant and snobbish, even though he had accomplished nothing in his life. He was a prince by birthright, not because he earned it. Precursor: George Washington’s term was a precursor for the other president’s. He set the two term presidential policy for the rest of the presidents.
James I has always been viewed as an extravagant king, who didn't care about finances and who was more addicted to his pleasure. He had a few defects which possibly was harmful for the conservation of estate and government: His ignorance and failure to appreciate poverty and lack of strength, although he had the royal prerogative he did not use it as much as he needed to. He overrated himself and despited the other princes. Also, he was too idle and too little concerned with business. If he wanted something he would do anything that is in his power to get it, regardless of costs.
He underestimated the slave army because of what they were. He did not order guards to protect camp because he simply thought slaves could do nothing endangering to the Roman Army. They were both indeed great leaders. Not all of their choices were wise, but the choices they made that were great, were the ones that we know them for. 2.
