After the French Revolution completely changed the French society, people wanted a strong leader that will lead their country. Of all the powerful people that had the potential. Napoleon is chosen for being a strong military leader with strategy that enabled France to become a prosperous empire that dominated its surrounding countries. Among the rulers that once ruled France, Napoleon is a hero for making the country peaceful and successful. He surrendered his personal life to accomplish goals that will improve his country.
However, the most accurate assessment of Bonaparte’s intentions as leader most probably lies somewhere in between these two views. He was undoubtedly ruthlessly ambitious, but nevertheless, as an autocratic leader, made his own ambitions and desires synonymous with those of France and its people. Tulard (C) is no doubt the most forceful in claiming that the personal benefits which arose from making France a more stable, and thus more prosperous country, had always been Napoleon’s primary motivation from the very outset.

One of the most popular factors attributed to the success of the First Crusade was the deep religious conviction of the first crusaders. They believed that their cause was just, and that God was behind it. This staunch conviction bolstered their efforts to the extent in which they engaged and defeated formidable opponents such as the Egyptians, defying all logical calculation and reasoning.

Another reason why the First Crusade was successful was because of its efficient leadership.
They all played a big role in how Lloyd George became the Prime Minister without a party and the conservatives where the party in coalition with him. The first reason why Lloyd George and the conservatives won the elections is because of Lloyd George himself. One of the main reasons for this was because he was a great public speaker and socially impressed people. This was important because he had to get the public onside to get the vote. He did this by telling the people that land fit for heroes would come out of the war.
Louis also governed in a matter that did not require input from others; he governed is a way that he wanted to, limiting the power of the nobility and aristocracy. His efforts were not in vain, in fact people felt honored in Louis merely glanced at by him, or if they could merely walk beside him. Louis was able to achieve “One king” by exercising much control over his people which made him the center of everything in Europe. Louis XIV craved “One law”, which he was able to achieve by limiting the power of the nobility and other statesmen and the unification of the military. At the time of the La Fronde, a series of uprisings against royal policies and heavy taxation, Louis was just a young ruler.
Henrys ability to attract and maintain the loyalty of talented men and his willingness to reward them with recognition and power were key elements in the security of the dynasty. Henry was also successful in defeating his rivals. Two of his main rivals were Simnel and Warbeck, both pretenders.

However, once they got to Ireland he thought it would be more effective to pass him off as the earl of Warwick.
Ho Chi Minh, the vital leader in Vietnam's fight for independence had an enormous impact on the struggle against, and victory over the French. His early influences and surroundings whilst growing up had a significant impact in shaping Ho's views on French colonisation, leading him to establish the Indo-Chinese Communist Party, (the ICP).

This reveals the nature of Tiberius’ succession as one of necessity. Tiberius had huge feats to live up to from Augustus’ rule; however he endeavored to continually improve the Roman Empire.

In order to keep the Huguenots peaceful, Henry knew he would have to settle them in a way that tackled their demands. Finally, one thing that Henry was always desperate for was the loyalty of all his people, united as one. The phrase, ‘One king, one faith, one law’ was particularly popular in France at the time, and a saying that Henry wished to use in his own methods of ruling. To conclude, Henry IV issued the Edict of Nantes in 1598 so as to help the ordinary people living in France at the time whose lives had been completely twisted upside down as a result of the religious wars. He also wanted to keep peace with the
Augustus had an exceptional public image; the citizens of Rome had great respect and admiration for him and held him in the highest of esteems. The aims and methods which he employed to gain this public image reveal that he was tactful, however occasionally underhand. His public image was developed through a long, slow process which consisted of some sidestepping and backtracking but above all, constant vigilance . As the restorer of the republic Augustus had a huge task ahead of him, but he took on the responsibility and set out to make others believe that he was the right man for the job. Through restoring the republic and bringing peace to the empire, reorganisation of the army, his building reforms and successful use of propaganda, his
