There, his soldiers proclaimed Constantine emperor, but much rivalry for the vacated office ensued. In Italy, Maxentius, supported by the Romans and by his father Maximian, vied with Severus and Galerius. Constantine, accepting the lesser title of Caesar from Galerius, remained aloof while Maxentius and Maximian defeated Severus and Galerius. Constantine made an alliance with Maximian, marrying his daughter Fausta and recognizing Maxentius after a fashion. When Maximian, in dispute with his son, fled to Constantine, Constantine received and sheltered him until Maximian, in an attempt to regain the throne, undertook a revolt against Constantine's rule in Gaul.
(Roman-Empire.net). Around 146 B.C. Carthage attracted neighboring nations, like the Roman Empire, and was destroyed in 146 B.C. at the end of the Punic Wars (Google.com Timeline).

In 1924, his attempts to gain power were even more serious. At this time Fascist party gained 66% of parliament votes. Matteoti who was anti-fascist politician was kidnapped and stabbed but the King still didn’t do anything and he kept Mussolini on his position which was another mistake which helped Mussolini in achieving his goal. Finally, in 1925 special court and secret police were established, all opposition parties and trade unions were banned. In December these acts were embodied in law and thus Mussolini fulfilled his goal and became ruler ( to be more precise dictator) of Italy.
Rome sent Vespasian to suppress the revolt. Vespasi’s son, Titus was renowned for his military prowess and he took control of the besieging troops after his father became emperor. Jerusalem finally fell in 70AD and the revolt ended after the fall of the Massada fortress in 72AD. In 1822, Giuseppe Valadier dismantled and reconstructed the arch as directed by pope Pius VII (the seventh). Titus became the emperor of the Roman Empire in 79 AD.

The fascists grew dramatically in the early twenties and brawled their ideological rivals and brethren. The government feared Mussolini’s rivals and underestimated the future dictator. Eventually, Mussolini legally assumed power through a coup that led to his dictatorship and fascist victory in Italy. Mussolini rejected socialism when he realized its shortcomings. Socialism rejected nationalism, but the masses embraced it.
injury ought to be of such a kind that one does not fear revenge” One cannot talk about Machiavelli without giving mention to one of his most celebrated works – ‘The Prince’. The book is essentially a letter to the King Lorenzo de Medici to promote a ‘champion’ or in other words a prince to unite Italy against its invaders and intruders. However, his advice to king showing signs of treachery, deceit and tyranny has given rise to the word ‘machiavellian’. Niccolo clearly explains that one cannot do good unless one is secure and gaining security requires extreme measures. His bluntness and straightforwardness in the expression of his thoughts in maintaining that it is okay for the king to use “wrong” methods as long as the goal is achieved has made his work highly controversial and also sort of laid a foundation for modern political science.
He acts as Caesar’s friend and along with Caesar, has a powerful position in Rome. Since they both have a lot of power, Brutus has no reason to be jealous of Caesar. When Brutus finally decides what to do, he bases it on what he thinks is best for Rome, but is also tricked into thinking that the conspirators are doing it for the same reason. He says, “What need we any spur but our own cause / To prick us to redress? What other bond / Than the secret Romans that have spoke the word, / And will not palter?
