This sent Hamlet into a deep depression that winds up causing much more than his Uncle Claudius bargained for. Beowulf proves to everyone that he will not only make a name for himself, but also grow into a wise, strong, courageous leader that will do anything to gain fame.
Becoming a governor in his region of Rome wasn’t good enough, he wanted to be crowned king and serve as a dictator for life, something that Rome didn’t have for five hundred years. His need for absolute power, to become greedy and to bring Rome under Monarchy corrupted him and altered his thinking. Instead of thinking about the Roman people, he was thinking about himself, and that made him a bad leader. Another reason that he wasn’t a good leader was that he was weak. Although he appeared to be strong to the commoners, he was seen as weak to his own Senate members, especially Cassius.

Charles was an advocate of the Divine Right of Kings and as his subjects; we feared that he was attempting to gain absolute power. He totally ignored the Magna Carta and showed no respect on ruling lawfully. Charles invaded the House of Common and tried to murder the leader of H.O.C.

Ambition’s Impact “Absolute power corrupts absolutely”(John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton) . However, for some men, the idea of having power at all or entitlement to something is enough to turn them from being great men to power crazed cowards. In Shakespeare’s Macbeth, a man’s ambition leads him to abandon all morals in a vain bid for the throne of Scotland. Through Lady Macbeth, Malcolm, and Macbeth, Shakespeare exemplifies that unchecked ambition can lead to madness, controlled motivation can lead to success, and being power hungry leads to unnecessary violence towards others. One cannot blame the actions of the main character, Macbeth, solely on Macbeth.
Macbeth’s uncontrollable craving for power caused him to make many reckless decisions. In the beginning of the play, Macbeth was told that he would become king. In order for this to happen, Duncan, the king at the time, had to die. Macbeth knew he had to kill Duncan but was unsure of it at first. His wife, Lady Macbeth, helped him follow through with it.
