Octavian placed Lepidus in Pontius Maximus, which provided him with little power in politics; however Marc Antony would be more of an obstacle, as he had now equal rule of Egypt with his wife Cleopatra. This was a threat to Augustus’ plan, with Antony refuting the arranged marriage to Octavian’s sister Octavia and placing his power in the hands of his children in Egypt. In desperation, Octavian published Antony’s will as propaganda, which caused in uproar in Rome, as they feared their undivided power would be shared with the Egyptian monarchs. As a result, Antony was stripped of his powers in Rome and the battle of Actium proceeded in 31BC, which was a full scale attack on Antony and Cleopatra. Octavian gained victory and claimed the supreme rule of the Roman world.
As her reign continued, this gradually evolved into a more and more masculine depiction eaccording to the French scholar Tefrin. This may have been to prepare the way for the continuance of matriarchal rule, with her daughter Neferure as her successor. This idea is further illustrated in her portraits as her statutes use to show her as an elegant female figure with the pharaoh headdress but later on, she is depicted a male, warrior pharaoh. This was to make her look more powerful. Hatshepsut was always seen weak; but did have some military expedition.
If one character could stand out in Egyptian history, none other would be so worthy as Cleopatra would, the Queen of Nile, as well as Elizabeth Petrovna the third empress of Russia if taking a look at the Russian history. At first glance, the similarities between these two women may not be evident, but surely the differences are quite obvious. The first easily noticeable difference between these two women is their origin and time of their rule. Cleopatra (Greek for ''famous in her father'') , more precisely Cleopatra VII Thea Philopator, was the last ruler of the Ptolematic dynasty, a family of Greek origin that ruled Egypt after Alexander the Great’s death during the Hellenistic period. She was born in 70/69 BC in Alexandria.
In the classical period, Imperial Rome and Han China were both empires, that through many changes, both lasted roughly around 400 years all together before their periods of war and decline had occurred. Both Han China and Imperial Rome shared their ideas of emperors and sole rulers, they also understood the importance of education and technology, yet they differed in their tolerance of religious practices and leadership transitions. The Roman Empire began around 81 B.C.E, as the world’s first true republic. It consisted of a senate, a dictator, and assemblies to represent the plebeian population. However, after the assassination of the first dictator, Julius Caesar, it seemed the republic would not last.
The ban on the cult of Amun was lifted and traditional privileges were restored to its priesthood. The capital was moved back to Thebes and the city of Akhetaten abandoned. This is also when he changed his name to Tutankhamun was slight of build, and was roughly 5 ft 11 in tall, and probably the product of incest which may have cause so many health problems for the king. There are many theory’s on how the King died that contributed to his early death. For years, scientists
They began bickering until they finally asked Zeus to settle the matter. Zeus, not wanting to get involved, sent the goddesses and their problem to a prince named Paris, the son of King Priam of Troy. Some say he chose Paris because he was the most honest person on earth, but others say it was because he was not smart enough to know not get involved with fighting between goddesses. Each goddess tried to bribe Paris in her own way. Athena, goddess of wisdom, war, the arts, industry, justice and skill, promised to help him lead Troy to victory against the Greeks.
In a Proof of Marriage, the writer Isaeus is trying to convince the jury the wife and mother had a legitimate marriage so the woman can inherit her father Ciron's estate. Like the previous speech, the woman is considered respectable, so her name is not mentioned throughout. A Husband's Defence was written by Lysias. He is trying to convey how he believed his wife was “the chastest woman in all the city” and puts the majority of the blame onto her lover, Eratosthenes. This is because he is trying to justify why Euphiletus murdered Eratosthenes.

At the same time this is going on Odysseus’ son (Telemachus) and wife (Penelope) encounter suitors who try to invade their home, and Telemachus tries to find his father. In the end of this epic Odysseus finds Telemachus and Penelope, but does not end up killing the suitors in the end of the epic, because Zeus interferes with Odysseus when he throws down a lightning bolt. In Aristophanes’ Lysistrata the main objective of the women of Greece is to end the Peloponnesian war. The women are naturally weaker than the men of Greece, so their only way to obtain their objective is to outsmart them. There are two things the women of Greece do to obtain their objective.
One of the many differences between the novel and the film was the queen. Frank Miller did not contribute more to her minor character than a mere quote in the beginning of the book. When Leonidas I gathered his 300 men to go fight the Persians, she told him: “Come back with your shield or on it” (Miller 1998). But to beef up the plot and change the outlook on the Greeks, Snyder gave her a more vital role in the film. She played an important part in trying to save Sparta and was as much a hero as her husband, Leonidas I.
