Therefore, it can be stated that Tiberius, despite given power with reluctance, continued to build Rome to new a level of greatness. When Augustus died in 14AD ‘two pieces of news became known simultaneously: Augustus was dead, and Tiberius was in control’- Tacitus. Tacitus was highly critical of Tiberius, perhaps because his senatorial reforms left Tacitus with little power. Tiberius embraced his new power, as Tacitus refers, ‘waywardly’ but found refuge in the army, where he was most comfortable. Scullard claims that Tiberius ‘acted firmly within the sphere of his proconsular imperium’.
By the time of Julius Caesar's dictatorship and subsequent assassination at the hands of the Senate, the Roman Republic was in a virtual free-fall of corruption and struggle for power. The Roman people were tired of the turmoil brought on by decades of war and needed a leader that could and would restore peace, order, and prosperity. Nonetheless, thirteen years of civil war followed Caesar's assassination and during this time Octavian, the grand-nephew and heir of Caesar, came into his sizable inheritance. He entered into a military-dictatorship (the Second Triumvirate) of Rome with supporters of his late great-uncle, was given a senate seat, and was elected consul and granted imperium, all before the age of twenty. Before he was 32 years
The Roman Republic was facing internal problems that would cause it to ultimately collapse into the Roman Empire. Including social unrest between the classes and military entering into politics, among other reasons, the Roman Republic crumbled under itself and gave way to the beginning of new government. A second triumvirate ended with civil war and the Republic was over; however, Octavian created the Roman Empire in its place. Because of the stabilizing government, strong legal system and increasing trade, the Pax Romana was able to remain tied together for about 210 years. The Roman Republic was struggling to remain in power but the social unrest was a not a helping factor in helping the Republic to last for a while longer.
Jade Purdin HIST2013-A Dr. Humphrey October 8 The Accomplishments of Augustus Caesar Augustus was an emperor of a once great empire that revolutionized the government, the army, secured borders, rebuilt the city from sewers to aqueducts, to also establishing firefighters and policemen. He was a revolutionary that changed this world. We today use his methods to control our own civilization from security to defensive structures. Augustus could have very well changed how humanity survives now but how much do you think we are able to change now? Augustus was smart about having a government to utilize in the laws for Rome.
Samuel Adams was, in my opinion, a “real American hero” during the pre-Revolutionary period in American history. He was influential in securing independence from Britain, and supported civil and economic rights for the American people. In addition, his role in the establishment of the Sons of Liberty, the committees of correspondence, and the 1st Continental Congress was instrumental in America’s shift towards independence. He brewed up support for the American Revolution in his various essays and speeches to his people. More than a decade before the Declaration of Independence, Adams wrote that individuals were "inalienably entitled to those essential rights in common with all men," which was a key theme in the Declaration of Independence.
He reformed the Roman system of taxation, developed networks of roads with an official courier system During his rule, Christianity was birthed, and would later on spread. Augustus wrote a record of all his accomplishments in a book known as Res Gestae Divi Augusti, which still is around today. Upon his death in 14 AD, Augustus was declared a god by the Senate and was to be worshipped by Romans. The sixth month of the calendar was renamed after him. Though his death was unfortunate, his reign laid the foundations of a regime that lasted almost fifteen hundred
At the Continental congress he forcefully voiced his political opinions in a room full of moderates (Thomas Kindig, 1995). Adams never lost sight of his cause, always advocating for America to be free of its British shackles. Samuel Adams activism helped America become a sovereign nation. Samuel Adams was brilliant in his efforts to create propaganda. He was an instigator and agitator, always adding fuel to the fire.
There was a withdrawal of financial, cultural, and legal uniformity. The citizens of Rome were governed by law codes before the presence of the barbarians. The soldiers didn’t know who to follow-Roman troops were made and unmade emperors so often that (to exaggerate only slightly) a man might be a general one day, emperor the next, and dead on the third. (Bennett 8) As far as the people on the outskirts of Rome, living under Roman law, were probably not too happy with the decline. I believe people like some type of structure or a feeling of security.
They would lead until Caesar had enough military experience out of France to come in and defeat both their armies to become dictator. This would eventually lead to his death along with civil wars after bringing the Roman Empire down. It seemed to be a step backward for civilization due to the fact when the Roman Empire was at its peak there was free elections, new finding in science, art, literature and other fields of education. Along, with a stable government where people could pick their senators. However during the middle ages this all seemed to come crashing down, due to civil wars and peoples push for power over the entire Empire.
In conclusion, Napoleon Bonaparte is considered a hero that save many lives through many decisions that he made. These decisions include the religious tolerance and allowing the enemy of the French Revolution to regain their power over with the government. In addition to the religious tolerance, Napoleon expanded his country to gain more land and power. On the other hand, he paired his siblings to allow surrounding countries to have an alliance with France. All in all, Napoleon is a hero that preserved many ideas of the French Revolution and his
