Tuthmosis III was born in Egypt in 1516 B.C.E. He was the son of Tuthmosis II and was married to Hatshepsut who was his sister and daughter of Tuthmosis I. Hatshepsut considered Tuthmosis III to be a bastard son and believed him to be unworthy of being Pharaoh because he had no royal blood in him, since she considered his father to have poor leadership skills. Since Tuthmosis II and Hatshepsut hadn’t had any sons, Tuthmosis III would be the heir to the throne, so in 1504 B.C.E. when Tuthmosis II dies, the young Tuthmosis III is crowned. At this time Tuthmosis III was only around twelve years old, and Hatshepsut believed it would be better if she retained the power of the Pharaoh.
When her husband died his son Thutmose III became next to the throne but because he was a baby Hatshepsut became co-ruler of Egypt. Hatshepsut soon became a strong woman making changes within her dynasty. She did not believe in wars even though she was believed to have started her own military campaign towards the end of her reign. She was known for her foreign policy in trade and she was the one to bring gold, ebony, animal skins, baboons, processed myrrh and living myrrh trees brought back to Egypt, which these trees were planted in the gardens of Dayr al-Bahrī. This same garden is believed to be where her remains were buried in an undisclosed area.

That’s when her brother finally mastered his plan and had Cleopatra taken of the throne. As Cleopatra was ready to strike at her brother she heard a word going around that the Roman Emperor was in the Palace of Egypt. Which made her think that she can’t barge in with an army or else she might send the wrong message to Caesar.
Agrippina’s attempted removal of Emperor Gaius which (Ledbetter) considers a failed experiment was to ensure Nero’s ascension as Emperor and to gain influence for herself. This plan led to exile for Agrippina yet her willingness and ambition to interfere with the Judio-Claudian line and gain influence was shown. After the death of Messalina Claudius chose Agrippina as his wife, for the first time Agrippina had political influence in Rome and began her plan to manipulate the line of succession, according to Tacitus she devoted herself to scheming for her son. Agrippina’s influence emerged mainly from her relationships with Seneca and Burrus who enabled her to ascend her power. Agrippina’s influence is clearly shown through her decision to recall the exiled
Account for the origin and failure of Boudicca’s revolt. Boudicca was the Queen of the British Iceni tribe. She led a revolt against the forces of the Roman Empire in 60AD, which was ultimately unsuccessful. The cause of the revolt was the death of Boudicca’s husband, King Prasutagus, and the subsequent brutal treatment of Boudicca and her daughters by the Romans. The fact the Romans treated the Britons harshly and took advantage of them financially meant that there were enough people amongst other tribes to join Boudicca’s revolt.
Ancient Rome: People and Events Romulus and Remus: ¬ According to the roman mythology, the founders of Rome were Romulus and Remus. The twin-brothers were the sons of the god Mars and the priestess Rhea Silvia. The tale begins with the introduction of Numitor (their grandfather and king of the ancient Italian city of Alba Longa), and his brother Amulius. Numitor's daughter, Rhea Silvia, was made a Vestal Virgin by Amulius which meant that she was made a priestess of the goddess Vesta and therefore forbidden to marry. However, the god Mars came down to her temple where she conceived her twin sons; Romulus and Remus.
One in a few Spartan kings received this harsh training. Attending the agoge was where all Spartans had to go in order to be suitable for their citizenship. He was not the heir to his father’s throne when his father Anaxandridas passed away, the throne came upon Cleomenes his half-brother. He also had another half-brother who was Dorieus (Leonidas 1, par.4) Cleomenes and Dorieus where Anaxandridas children from his second wife. Leonidas relationship with his brother was unknown, but he married Gorgo which was Cleomenes daughter before he came to the throne in 490 B.C.
Apparently, she left Israel on the death of her husband, King Ahab, and returned when Akhenaten rejected her for failing to provide him with a male heir. Proponents of this view further suggest that Jehu (who caused the death of Jezebel) was in fact the general Horemheb. He became Pharaoh after the death of Ay, and destroyed the monuments and inscriptions of the Atenist regime. However, the orthodox chronology would place 500 years between Nefertiti and Jezebel, and Jezebel was an avid defender of the Phonecian Goddess Astarte. This does not tie in too well with Atensim as Astarte was a war and fertility goddess while her consort Baal was a rain and storm god.
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.
