Connections Between U.S. Presidents and Roman Emperors
Throughout history, countless leaders, had their periods of leadership among the masses; a story of how they claimed their superior position. Are there
connections though between leaders and their lives, positions, and their form of a kingdom? My goal is to find these connections between the United
States' current and former presidents, Barrack Obama and George W. Bush and two Roman emperors,Augustus and his great–grandson, Nero.
After a 20–year period of transition from the republic and the assassination of Julius Caesar, Augustus returned to Rome forming an alliance with Mark
Antony and Marcus Lepidus known as the Second Triumvirate which led to the establishment of the Roman Empire. The first 206 years of the Roman
Empire were known ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
It was suspected by some historians that Nero caused the fire of 64. Nero attempted to rebuild Rome and organize the construction of the buildings that
were burned or destroyed. The attempt to rebuild Rome cost immense funds that the Rome State Treasury didn't have, causing the Roman currency to
decrease in value.
Nero was surrounded by death and as emperor was known for his many of his atrocities and executions, including the execution of his mother. Even as
a child, Nero was surrounded by death in his family. Nero's father, Lucious Ahenobarbus, died when Nero was 2 years old. Several other family
members deaths followed including: his uncle, aunt and cousin; his half–brother, and his mother. After becoming emperor, he had ordered the
execution of his mother for having indecent relations.
Later in his reign, Nero became one of the first prosecutors of Christians. After the fire of 64, Nero tortured and executed countless Christians. Was
known by some historians as the antichrist that the bible predicted.
Our government now has great contrast to the Roman Empire but like the up Empire, we look to one man for leadership and approval. In a
democracy, that one man is known as the president. The masses vote on a president to represent them for four years. As president, they have several

Emperor Wudi: Fifth Emperor Of The Han Dynasty
Emperor Wudi, also known as Liu CheеЉ‰еѕ№, was the fifth emperor of the Han Dynasty and one of the most famous Han rulers. He had two
goals: have a centralized administration and expand his empire. He was a very great military leader but also promoted peace, like the Roman Empire,
that later brought great prosperity to China itself.
Wudi came to throne at age 15 and reigned from 141 BC to 87 BC. He was the second longest ruling emperor, first being Emperor Kangxi of the
later Qing Dynasty. He had two wives, Empress Chen Jiao and Empress Wei Zifu. Chen Jiao was Wudi's closest cousin and childhood playmate. Wei
Zifu was the second longest reigning empress in Chinese history. Wudi also had an older sister, Princess Pingyang.
During his reign, he was able to establish the Silk Road. But this started with the Chinese ambassador Zhang Qian, who travelled the vast lands of Asia
for thirteen years to establish relations with the Western regions. By then the harassment by the Xiongnu had subsided so Wudi was able to open up
the Silk Road, linking the east and west. They had camel caravans to trade with neighbors. In the west, the Romans had high demand for Chinese silk,
so by having a strong trade connection between the Chinese and Romans, both empires flourished. Horses were also introduced when the Chinese
traded with the west. ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...

Roman Emperor Trajan Research Paper
Trajan is considered by many historians as one of the greatest Roman emperors. He conquered Parthia and Dacia, expanding Rome's borders. He was
also the first non–Roman emperor in Rome's history. Trajan was born in Italica, Baetica (modern–day Spain) on September 15th, 53 CE, and he died on
either August 8th or August 9th, 117 CE in Selinus, Cilicia (modern–day Turkey). Trajan started his career as a legionary staff tribune in Syria, where
his father was governor. After that, he became a praetor, which qualified him for command of a legion in Spain in 89 CE. One day, he was ordered to
march his troops to Rome to help a revolt against emperor Domitian, but the revolt was suppressed by the time he arrived. In 91 CE, Domitian allowed

One example of public buildings built by Trajan was Trajan's Forum. Trajan's Forum was designed by the architect Apollodorus of Damascus. Trajan's
Forum contains a four–story, open air shopping mall, the Basilica Ulpia, where laws and government matters were handled, and Trajan's Column.
Trajan's Forum was a huge architectural achievement because slaves and workers cut two hemicycles into the Capitoline and Quirinal hills. In the
holes, warehouses and shops were built, and many streets were formed (Hammond). Another example of Trajan building public buildings is Trajan's
Column. Trajan's Column is an 126 feet tall Column that depicts the invasion and conquering of Dacia. There are thousands of figures telling the story
of the Dacian War. The figures are fighting, sailing, building, and negotiating in all of the intricate scenes (Curry). In 117, when Trajan died, his ashes
were transported to Rome and he was buried under the column (Hammond). Another example of Trajan building public buildings is Trajan's Market.
Trajan's Market is a four–story, open air shopping mall built between 107 and 110 CE. It contained the main building, a covered market, small shop

The Conversion Of Roman Emperor

Research Paper
The conversion of Roman Emperor, Constantine, marked the start of a reform that would change Rome forever. A once pagan society, Rome was one
of the last to grasp the Christianity concept. The start of "Christianizing" Rome began with two of Jesus' disciples, Peter and James, as well as the
apostle Paul in the Roman province of Antioch during the first century ("New Women of Color Study Bible" 1742). From this,Christianity spread all
over the province, by the time it got to Rome it was not widely practiced. It wasn't until the reign of Constantine that Christianity took its place as the
empires forefront religion. Since Rome was known for its worship and idolizing of gods, how and for what reasons did Constantine transform his
subjects' beliefs? According to authors, Ramsay MacMullen, John Curran, and A.H.M. Jones, a number of tactics were used to sway the masses' minds.
Use of coercion, money, and campaigns aided Constantine's questionable Christian "cleanse".
During the reign of Constantine, cash was quite a factor in conversion of the people. As described by Ramsay MacMullen, "There [was] also an
element familiar only from the time of Constantine's reign forward: imperial cash gifts, some of them quite gigantic" (MacMullen 88). These
particular "cash gifts" were used mainly for church growth. In order to create a steady base of "believers" Constantine permitted the enticement of

THE CHARTER OATH
As the Meiji Era commenced, the new Meiji reformers had to change many characteristics of the Japanese society, in order to win the respect of the
Western power (Europe and the United States). In 1868, when the Meiji emperor was restored as head of Japan, the country was militarily weak, had
little technological advancement, and was predominantly agricultural. Instead, of a unified nation, Japan was controlled by hundreds of
semi–independent feudal lords (shoguns and daimyos too, held power and authority over the warlords). When the Western powers arrived at Japan,
they forced Japan to sign treaties that limited the nation's control over its own foreign trade. However, Japan was not able to fight back, because the

The inequality and the restriction of freedom, between the class division systems made majority of the population discontented. Fearing uprises and
revolts from the people, the leaders of the new Meiji government tried to unite all people to strengthen the country. To achieve this aim, the traditional
class system became abolished. All men became eligible to rise to government positions, as long as they possess the necessary talent. The
government's first dramatic step was to abolish all the daimyo domains, thus dismantling a political order in place for 260 years. Article 2 of the

Emperor Of China Self Portrait Of Kanghsi

expanded China during the late 17th century. Translated into English by Jonathan D. Spence, Emperor of China provides a glimpse into the life of
China's longest reigning emperor during the beginning China's last ruling dynasty. Kangxi records his thoughts to provide guidance to future
generations of Qing emperors. The Emperor's writings served as evidence of his life acting in accordance with both Chinese principles and Manchu
principles. Emperor of China displays Emperor Kangxi's philosophies on ruling through humility and the struggles of duality he faced in maintaining
the military tradition of his Manchu ancestors while at the same time conforming to the Confucian principles of his Chinese court. Emperor Kangxi

successes. They must also learn from his mistakes. The Qing emperor also seems to hold historical accuracy on a high pedestal writing, "History

Response To Emperor Worship
Emperor Worship Response
Emperor worship began as early as the time of Egyptian Pharaohs like that of King Horus, "the divine ruler over the whole Egypt" (Dollinger, 2017,
p. 1). Tracing emperor worship from the Pharaohs and the Ptolemies, Sparta, and Alexander the Great provided evidence of the enormous influence it
had on the Roman emperors. "When Rome conquered the East, the same divine honors were transferred to the Roman proconsuls" (Burton, 1912, p.
80). Acceptance of the imperial cult by Roman rulers in Asia Minor and Greece was far–reaching and attributed to Alexander the Great's legacy.
However, he was not regarded as a god. It was Antiochus IV who accepted the honor of being recognized as a divine king. Afterward, a long line...

1). Emperor worship was entirely unacceptable to the Jews. It was during the time of King Herod the Great that emperor worship began in
Palestine. Herod the Great thought he should be worshiped as others esteemed as deities. He devised a plan to find baby Jesus and have Him killed
so that he would continue to be recognized as the King of the Jews. However, it was not God's plan, and Herod died without knowing the whereabouts
of baby Jesus. The imperial cult reached its peak of popularity in the 2nd century and in the 4th century began to lose its religious relevance. The
decline of imperial cult worship was attributed to the rise of Christianity. As Christianity became the formal worship, emperor worship died. Certain
customs that came about during the emperor worship era, such as kneeling before the Emperor or his statue, was still practiced. In the provinces,
priests of emperor worship still functioned but their function became more political than religious. Hostility remained between the Jews and Christians
toward the Roman emperors. The Roman emperor, Caligula, demanded his statue be set up in synagogues and in the temple of Jerusalem. The Jews
were in an uproar and made many attempts to defy the order, but before Caligula could totally enforce his order, he died. After his death, there were no

protective of his sons and made sure they got everything they wanted. He would often kill someone that threatened the chance of a power overthrow.
He once killed three cooks and several servant boys for suspicion of homosexual activity with his son Yin–jeng. At the end of K'ang–hsi's life, he
became very senile and distant from reality and the Chinese people. Even though Spence goes into great detail about Emperor K'ang–hsi's life than any
history book could have. He does this by emphasizing his writings and not other sources. The downfall to this is he does not go into great detail about
many of the facts or important historical events. By this time China had foreign intervention and influence; Spence did not address any of the foreign

Achievements Of The Qianlong Emperor
The Qianlong Emperor is one of the most notable emperors in Chinese history due to the complexity of his reign. Qianlong was the fourth emperor
of the Qing Dynasty from 1735 to 1796. This is one of the longest in Chinese History. The first 40 years were some of his greatest achievements,
however the last 20 years were met with fraud, corruption, and a declining popularity. In this essay, I will argue that despite having a major blemish to
his reign, the Qianlong Emperor was a successful emperor. I am defining and measuring successfulness based on 1) the ability to grow the empire 2)
whether or not they have good intentions for empire and 3) control and security over the empire. The Qianlong Emperor's greatest successes shine
through his militaristic campaigns, foreign relations, and his protection and his advocating for art. However, it is also stained by corruption and bad
management.
Qianlong's strong dynasty is formed by his many military achievements and is an example of his successfulness by the massive growth that he
accomplished. In the 18th century under Qianlong, there was an expansion of arable lands, a population boom, and a good administration. The Qing
Empire was on the rise. Military campaigns from 1755–1760 against the Turks and the Mongols helped eliminate the danger of invasion. It also led to
the creation of New Province (Xinjiang) in northwest China. This helped enlarge the empire by 600,000 square miles. He also had campaigns in the

Emperor Penguin Cycle
Emperor Penguin
Introduction:
The Emperor Penguin, also scientifically known as Aptenodytes forsteri, is the tallest and heaviest of all penguin species. The Emperor Penguin is
native to Antarctica and is near threatened with a stable population. If living in the wild, it generally has a lifespan of around 20 years, but an
individual can reach 50 years of age. The Emperor penguin reproduces sexually, meaning two parents are required during the reproduction process.
Emperor penguins reach sexual maturity at the age of 3.
Reproductive parts:
Unlike humans and many other animals, female Emperor Penguins do not have a vagina and the males do not have a penis. The main male
reproductive parts are the testis, ureter, vas deferens and cloaca. The testis grow in size during mating season to produce more sperm. The sperm then
travels through the ureter and a tube called the vas deferens. This then leads to the cloaca where the sperm is stored. The cloaca is also an opening of
the digestive, reproductive and urinary tract. The main female reproductive parts include the ovaries, where the eggs are produced, the oviduct which
is where the egg travels through, a uterus, ureter and a cloaca which leads to the ovaries.

The Secret History Was Written By Procopius, And Emperor...
Theodora was the Empress of the Byzantine Empire from 527, when she was crowned, until her death in 548. Procopius was the appointed historian to
record what was happening in the Empire, but mostly to focus on Theodora and Justinian. The Secret History was written by Procopius, but not
published in the West until about a millennium after it was written. As it was 'a venomous pamphlet of dubious merit', The Secret History is hardly a
reliable historical source. It criticises Justinian and Theodora for all of their actions as Emperor and Empress, as well as create a story, possibly based
on nothing, about the origins of Theodora. While Procopius is considered a significant historian for the sixth century, it is notable that his treatment of
Theodora is biased in an unfavourable way. Procopius adopts a perceptibly hostile attitude toward Theodora. Much of this bias against Theodora can
be explained by Procopius' view of women in power and gender roles.
As a woman in Roman society, Theodora would have been married and her life controlled by her husband. As a woman in the imperial court,
Theodora's power and influence over the general public would have been restricted. Even with the limited public influence, there were ways for women
to demonstrate authority. One of the most common and traditional ways that women demonstrated power in the sixth century was imperial patronage.

Life Of The Blessed Emperor Constantine Analysis
It is evident that Constantine played a pivotal role in strengthening the relationship between Rome and Christianity as he helped facilitate the spread of
Christianity on a grander scale compared to other emperors who followed. Eusebius makes this clear in his excerpt The Life of the Blessed Emperor
Constantine by portraying Constantine as a devout Christian who believed that God can help him restore Rome to its original glory. During this time,
Rome exited the "'crisis of the third century'" characterized by numerous foreign incursions and domestic strife which left the Roman empire in

170). According to the Bagster translation by Ernest Cushing Richardson about Eusebius' The Life of the Blessed Emperor Constantine, Eusebius
depicted Constantine's realization that"...of the many emperors who had preceded him, those who had rested their hopes in a multitude of gods,... met
with an unhappy end" (18; bk 1, ch. XXVII). Eusebius made it clear that Constantine realized that the pagan emperors met their demise, thus he
changed his approach and believed that Christianity and God would help save the empire from ruin. Emperor Diocletian denounced Christianity and
urged people to accept his divine authority which was given to him by the Roman gods (Smarr January 25, 2017). This combined with the creation of
buildings denouncing Christianity led to numerous revolts against Diocletian's rule (Smarr January 25, 2017). This paved a path for Christianity's
takeover of the Roman empire. Thus, for a short period of time it seemed as if the relationship between Christianity and Rome was deteriorating, but
with Constantine initiating the acceptance of Christianity and Theodosius making it the religion of the empire in 380, it became the most important
religion in the Roman empire (McKay et al.

First Emperor Of China Essay
Although he did wonderful things while he was alive, the first emperor of China was not a wonderful person. This is because of his greed, the large
amount of people he executed, and his failed attempts to live forever. But who was the first emperor of China? What kind of things did he
accomplish? And why do so many insist that he was a bad person?
The answer lies in the Period of Warring States. Before China was unified, it was a land composed of seven independent states, they were kind of like

These type of penguins don't have any symbiotic relationships with any organisms since they are the largest of all penguins and live in the coldest
climate on earth. When resources become limited, organisms must compete for those organisms. Intra–specific competition occurs between emperor
penguin species, when they compete for nesting areas. This event gets intense because members of the same species share the same resources.
Emperor Penguins are basically endangered species because the majority of colonies will have lost half of their populations by the end of the
century. Every few minutes, emperor penguins leap out of the water when they are seeking for food. They are preyed on by seals and other animals,
where they become vulnerable when entering and exiting water at the beginning and end of breeding seasons. The Emperor penguins mainly feed on
fish, squid and krill. They search for their meals in the open sea or in the gaps in the sea ice. Like other penguins, they are expert swimmers, usually

Even if it seems like something small, the population drop of krill created a much bigger effect. The dropping of the krill population led to a food
shortage for the penguins, leading to a population drop of their own. Another problem, the ice melting due to climate change. Climate change, a
leading effect, caused by the "greenhouse effect" which refers to warming that happens when heat gets trapped by the atmosphere that radiates

predators such as animals like skuas, kelp gulls, and giant petrels. These predators come after the chicks especially as they cannot defend themselves.
This lack of ice leading to less protection making the innocent penguins more vulnerable to predators. Another cause, the excessive fishing and the
careless efforts to enforce safety while doing so. Fishing efforts over the past couple of years significantly increased. The penguin's prey such as

This is because the female Emperor desires a partner who is able to survive throughout the unfavourable environment during the long fasting
period whilst incubating the egg produced by the female. Once the female lays her egg, both parents alternate between incubating and protecting
the eggs as well as caring for the chicks once they're hatched while the female hunts for food. So, while the female returns to sea in order to forage
food, the male is left to fend for him and his egg and consequently chicks, this can last for approximately 2 months and the male penguins can
potentially lose up to 45% (potentially 20 kilograms) of their overall body fat over the breeding season. Therefore, it is incredibly important for a
female to find a fat partner, as the larger the partner, the longer he will be able to fast while she forages for food, and protect their eggs and
consequently their chicks. To emphasize and flaunt their size, the male Emperor penguins produce a call of sorts in order to attract a suitable female,
whilst performing and waving their flippers/wings around in order to draw attention to themselves. Dependant on the density of the male's layer of fat

warlords in China and Japan were great examples. In the film warlords were almost a constant mention, but it was never fully disclosed who warlords
were or what their purpose was during the dramatic changes in China. The Warlord Period, which was happening during Pu Yi's time as a figurehead,
not as an emperor, was a time of despair. Until the middle of the 1920s the warlords were a problem to the country of China. They became a danger
because "they now were the possessors of modern weapons, which united them with their suppliers, the Western powers, and gave them command
and money and resources." (Morton, 181) Warlords were a symbol of the confusion and misguidance China was under as reform in government and
the influence of other countries was taking hold. The Last Emperor merely mentions warlords in the film and leaves the viewer questioning why
these people are such a burden to China and what exactly they were doing to cause problems. Even so, they were discussed at proper times in the

Wu expanded China's territory through perpetual war endeavors. The cost of war was high, so in order to finance the many different wars she
established taxes. The taxes she placed were, "taxes including a household levy, a graduated tax based on property assessment, and a land levy
collected on acreage basis." In doing this she spent far less money on military expenditures, therefore saving money for other uses to better China.
Her military brutality came in handy when they had attacks from the Turks. In 689 the Turks invaded Chinese land. In retaliation to this Empress
Wu gathered up 450,000 soldiers to get rid of the Turks, but they failed to fight them off. After the defeat finding more recruits was difficult so in

My Life As Emperor By Su Tong
My Life as Emperor by Su Tong tells the story of a young emperor's rise to and fall from power. The main idea of this novel seems to be that the
fictional Xie Empire, like most real historical empires, was doomed to fall apart within a matter of a few centuries due to internal and external
complications. The grim prophecy that "calamity will soon befall the Xie Empire" repeats throughout the novel until the empire is indeed destroyed,
giving credence to this. At the start of the novel, fourteen–year–old Duanbai, the fifth son of the newly deceased emperor, falsely ascends to the throne
through the machinations of the late emperor's mother, Madame Huangfu. Throughout his reign, Duanbai is incapable of properly dealing with various
problems, ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
When he sees a circus performance at the Twelve–Eight celebration in Pinzhou, he tells his slave Swallow, "Walking a tightrope is more impressive
than being Emperor of Xie... I don't want to be Emperor. I want to be a tightrope walker" (Su 61). In his childish self–centeredness, he only thinks of
what he wants and does not concern himself with any matters of state. This allows his grandmother, Madame Huangfu, and his mother, Madame Meng,
to easily turn him into a puppet ruler, which would have happened in East Asian history when a child succeeded to the throne. Duanbai is aware that
the two women are making all of the decisions that should have been his, but he does not mind. When describing an audience with his chief ministers
and officials, the narrative says,
My grandmother Madame Huangfu, and the Empress Dowager, Madame Meng, sat on either side of the throne. My opinions always derived from
them, either by a veiled look or a whispered comment. That is how I preferred it. Even though I was of sufficient age and knowledge to excuse the
two women from administering state affairs from behind the scenes, I chose not to so that I could avoid having to watch my every word and overtax
my brain (Su 11–12).
Here, Duanbai believes he has power. He believes he could easily dismiss the two women and rule by himself if he would so desire, that he is merely
choosing not to exercise his power. Duanbai is happy to not have actual power

Connections Between U.S. Presidents And Roman Emperors

  • 1. Connections Between U.S. Presidents and Roman Emperors Throughout history, countless leaders, had their periods of leadership among the masses; a story of how they claimed their superior position. Are there connections though between leaders and their lives, positions, and their form of a kingdom? My goal is to find these connections between the United States' current and former presidents, Barrack Obama and George W. Bush and two Roman emperors,Augustus and his great–grandson, Nero. After a 20–year period of transition from the republic and the assassination of Julius Caesar, Augustus returned to Rome forming an alliance with Mark Antony and Marcus Lepidus known as the Second Triumvirate which led to the establishment of the Roman Empire. The first 206 years of the Roman Empire were known ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... It was suspected by some historians that Nero caused the fire of 64. Nero attempted to rebuild Rome and organize the construction of the buildings that were burned or destroyed. The attempt to rebuild Rome cost immense funds that the Rome State Treasury didn't have, causing the Roman currency to decrease in value. Nero was surrounded by death and as emperor was known for his many of his atrocities and executions, including the execution of his mother. Even as a child, Nero was surrounded by death in his family. Nero's father, Lucious Ahenobarbus, died when Nero was 2 years old. Several other family members deaths followed including: his uncle, aunt and cousin; his half–brother, and his mother. After becoming emperor, he had ordered the execution of his mother for having indecent relations. Later in his reign, Nero became one of the first prosecutors of Christians. After the fire of 64, Nero tortured and executed countless Christians. Was known by some historians as the antichrist that the bible predicted. Our government now has great contrast to the Roman Empire but like the up Empire, we look to one man for leadership and approval. In a democracy, that one man is known as the president. The masses vote on a president to represent them for four years.

  • 2. Emperor Wudi: Fifth Emperor Of The Han Dynasty Emperor Wudi, also known as Liu CheеЉ‰еѕ№, was the fifth emperor of the Han Dynasty and one of the most famous Han rulers. He had two goals: have a centralized administration and expand his empire. He was a very great military leader but also promoted peace, like the Roman Empire, that later brought great prosperity to China itself. Wudi came to throne at age 15 and reigned from 141 BC to 87 BC. He was the second longest ruling emperor, first being Emperor Kangxi of the later Qing Dynasty. He had two wives, Empress Chen Jiao and Empress Wei Zifu. Chen Jiao was Wudi's closest cousin and childhood playmate. Wei Zifu was the second longest reigning empress in Chinese history. Wudi also had an older sister, Princess Pingyang. During his reign, he was able to establish the Silk Road. But this started with the Chinese ambassador Zhang Qian, who travelled the vast lands of Asia for thirteen years to establish relations with the Western regions. By then the harassment by the Xiongnu had subsided so Wudi was able to open up the Silk Road, linking the east and west. They had camel caravans to trade with neighbors. In the west, the Romans had high demand for Chinese silk, so by having a strong trade connection between the Chinese and Romans, both empires flourished. Horses were also introduced when the Chinese traded with the west. ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Others included melting of metals for minting coins and craft works, and alcohol.

  • 5. Emperor Penguinss Research Paper Emperor Penguins are my favorite animals to this day. This is because in 2nd grade my teacher made us write essays on animals from Antarctica such as Polar Bears and Sea Lions. When my teacher assigned me the Emperor Penguin I didn't think much of it at the time, but when I began my research about the animal, it slowly caught my interest. The Emperor's lifespan is about 18–20 years and during those years they learn to hunt, avoid the animals that prey on them, and reproduce. The Emperor Penguins prey on many aquatic animals, some more than others such as Silverfish. Silverfish is the main food source that the penguins eat (according to google) but it's not the only source. They can also eat krill and squid. The Emperor Penguins are only 3.6 ...

  • 6. Roman Emperor Trajan Research Paper Trajan is considered by many historians as one of the greatest Roman emperors. He conquered Parthia and Dacia, expanding Rome's borders. He was also the first non–Roman emperor in Rome's history. Trajan was born in Italica, Baetica (modern–day Spain) on September 15th, 53 CE, and he died on either August 8th or August 9th, 117 CE in Selinus, Cilicia (modern–day Turkey). Trajan started his career as a legionary staff tribune in Syria, where his father was governor. After that, he became a praetor, which qualified him for command of a legion in Spain in 89 CE. One day, he was ordered to march his troops to Rome to help a revolt against emperor Domitian, but the revolt was suppressed by the time he arrived. In 91 CE, Domitian allowed him... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... One example of public buildings built by Trajan was Trajan's Forum. Trajan's Forum was designed by the architect Apollodorus of Damascus. Trajan's Forum contains a four–story, open air shopping mall, the Basilica Ulpia, where laws and government matters were handled, and Trajan's Column. Trajan's Forum was a huge architectural achievement because slaves and workers cut two hemicycles into the Capitoline and Quirinal hills. In the holes, warehouses and shops were built, and many streets were formed (Hammond). Another example of Trajan building public buildings is Trajan's Column. Trajan's Column is an 126 feet tall Column that depicts the invasion and conquering of Dacia. There are thousands of figures telling the story of the Dacian War. The figures are fighting, sailing, building, and negotiating in all of the intricate scenes (Curry). In 117, when Trajan died, his ashes were transported to Rome and he was buried under the column (Hammond). Another example of Trajan building public buildings is Trajan's Market. Trajan's Market is a four–story, open air shopping mall built between 107 and 110 CE. It contained the main building, a covered market, small shop fronts, and a residential apartment building.

  • 7. The Conversion Of Roman Emperor Nathan Little HY 103 11/7/2014 Research Paper The conversion of Roman Emperor, Constantine, marked the start of a reform that would change Rome forever. A once pagan society, Rome was one of the last to grasp the Christianity concept. The start of "Christianizing" Rome began with two of Jesus' disciples, Peter and James, as well as the apostle Paul in the Roman province of Antioch during the first century ("New Women of Color Study Bible" 1742). From this,Christianity spread all over the province, by the time it got to Rome it was not widely practiced. It wasn't until the reign of Constantine that Christianity took its place as the empires forefront religion. Since Rome was known for its worship and idolizing of gods, how and for what reasons did Constantine transform his subjects' beliefs? According to authors, Ramsay MacMullen, John Curran, and A.H.M. Jones, a number of tactics were used to sway the masses' minds. Use of coercion, money, and campaigns aided Constantine's questionable Christian "cleanse". During the reign of Constantine, cash was quite a factor in conversion of the people. As described by Ramsay MacMullen, "There [was] also an element familiar only from the time of Constantine's reign forward: imperial cash gifts, some of them quite gigantic" (MacMullen 88). These particular "cash gifts" were used mainly for church growth. In order to create a steady base of "believers" Constantine permitted the enticement of followers by way of church officials.

  • 8. Meiji Emperors Research Paper THE CHARTER OATH As the Meiji Era commenced, the new Meiji reformers had to change many characteristics of the Japanese society, in order to win the respect of the Western power (Europe and the United States). In 1868, when the Meiji emperor was restored as head of Japan, the country was militarily weak, had little technological advancement, and was predominantly agricultural. Instead, of a unified nation, Japan was controlled by hundreds of semi–independent feudal lords (shoguns and daimyos too, held power and authority over the warlords). When the Western powers arrived at Japan, they forced Japan to sign treaties that limited the nation's control over its own foreign trade. However, Japan was not able to fight back, because the Westerners ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... The inequality and the restriction of freedom, between the class division systems made majority of the population discontented. Fearing uprises and revolts from the people, the leaders of the new Meiji government tried to unite all people to strengthen the country. To achieve this aim, the traditional class system became abolished. All men became eligible to rise to government positions, as long as they possess the necessary talent. The government's first dramatic step was to abolish all the daimyo domains, thus dismantling a political order in place for 260 years. Article 2 of the Charter Oath, was a call for national unity. 'By 1876, less than a decade after the restoration takeover, the economic privileges of the samurai were wiped out entirely.' This meant that the samurai class lost its ruling and privileged power, and there was a breakdown of the previously strict and divided social classes.

Response To Emperor Worship Emperor Worship Response Emperor worship began as early as the time of Egyptian Pharaohs like that of King Horus, "the divine ruler over the whole Egypt" (Dollinger, 2017, p. 1). Tracing emperor worship from the Pharaohs and the Ptolemies, Sparta, and Alexander the Great provided evidence of the enormous influence it had on the Roman emperors. "When Rome conquered the East, the same divine honors were transferred to the Roman proconsuls" (Burton, 1912, p. 80). Acceptance of the imperial cult by Roman rulers in Asia Minor and Greece was far–reaching and attributed to Alexander the Great's legacy. However, he was not regarded as a god.

Emperor worship was entirely unacceptable to the Jews. It was during the time of King Herod the Great that emperor worship began in Palestine. Herod the Great thought he should be worshiped as others esteemed as deities. He devised a plan to find baby Jesus and have Him killed so that he would continue to be recognized as the King of the Jews. However, it was not God's plan, and Herod died without knowing the whereabouts of baby Jesus. The imperial cult reached its peak of popularity in the 2nd century and in the 4th century began to lose its religious relevance. The decline of imperial cult worship was attributed to the rise of Christianity. As Christianity became the formal worship, emperor worship died. Certain customs that came about during the emperor worship era, such as kneeling before the Emperor or his statue, was still practiced. In the provinces, priests of emperor worship still functioned but their function became more political than religious. Hostility remained between the Jews and Christians toward the Roman emperors. The Roman emperor, Caligula, demanded his statue be set up in synagogues and in the temple of Jerusalem. The Jews were in an uproar and made many attempts to defy the order, but before Caligula could totally enforce his order, he died.

He would often kill someone that threatened the chance of a power overthrow. He once killed three cooks and several servant boys for suspicion of homosexual activity with his son Yin–jeng. At the end of K'ang–hsi's life, he became very senile and distant from reality and the Chinese people. Even though Spence goes into great detail about Emperor K'ang–hsi's life than any history book could have. He does this by emphasizing his writings and not other sources. The downfall to this is he does not go into great detail about many of the facts or important historical events.

Qianlong was the fourth emperor of the Qing Dynasty from 1735 to 1796. This is one of the longest in Chinese History. The first 40 years were some of his greatest achievements, however the last 20 years were met with fraud, corruption, and a declining popularity. In this essay, I will argue that despite having a major blemish to his reign, the Qianlong Emperor was a successful emperor. I am defining and measuring successfulness based on 1) the ability to grow the empire 2) whether or not they have good intentions for empire and 3) control and security over the empire. The Qianlong Emperor's greatest successes shine through his militaristic campaigns, foreign relations, and his protection and his advocating for art. However, it is also stained by corruption and bad management. Qianlong's strong dynasty is formed by his many military achievements and is an example of his successfulness by the massive growth that he accomplished. In the 18th century under Qianlong, there was an expansion of arable lands, a population boom, and a good administration. The Qing Empire was on the rise. Military campaigns from 1755–1760 against the Turks and the Mongols helped eliminate the danger of invasion. It also led to the creation of New Province (Xinjiang) in northwest China.

  • 14. Emperor Penguin Cycle Emperor Penguin Introduction: The Emperor Penguin, also scientifically known as Aptenodytes forsteri, is the tallest and heaviest of all penguin species. The Emperor Penguin is native to Antarctica and is near threatened with a stable population. If living in the wild, it generally has a lifespan of around 20 years, but an individual can reach 50 years of age. The Emperor penguin reproduces sexually, meaning two parents are required during the reproduction process. Emperor penguins reach sexual maturity at the age of 3. Reproductive parts: Unlike humans and many other animals, female Emperor Penguins do not have a vagina and the males do not have a penis. The main male reproductive parts are the testis, ureter, vas deferens and cloaca. The testis grow in size during mating season to produce more sperm. The sperm then travels through the ureter and a tube called the vas deferens. This then leads to the cloaca where the sperm is stored. The cloaca is also an opening of the digestive, reproductive and urinary tract. The main female reproductive parts include the ovaries, where the eggs are produced, the oviduct which is where the egg travels through, a uterus, ureter and a cloaca which leads to the ovaries.

  • 15. The Secret History Was Written By Procopius, And Emperor... Theodora was the Empress of the Byzantine Empire from 527, when she was crowned, until her death in 548. Procopius was the appointed historian to record what was happening in the Empire, but mostly to focus on Theodora and Justinian. The Secret History was written by Procopius, but not published in the West until about a millennium after it was written. As it was 'a venomous pamphlet of dubious merit', The Secret History is hardly a reliable historical source. It criticises Justinian and Theodora for all of their actions as Emperor and Empress, as well as create a story, possibly based on nothing, about the origins of Theodora. While Procopius is considered a significant historian for the sixth century, it is notable that his treatment of Theodora is biased in an unfavourable way. Procopius adopts a perceptibly hostile attitude toward Theodora. Much of this bias against Theodora can be explained by Procopius' view of women in power and gender roles. As a woman in Roman society, Theodora would have been married and her life controlled by her husband. As a woman in the imperial court, Theodora's power and influence over the general public would have been restricted. Even with the limited public influence, there were ways for women to demonstrate authority. One of the most common and traditional ways that women demonstrated power in the sixth century was imperial patronage.

During this time, Rome exited the "'crisis of the third century'" characterized by numerous foreign incursions and domestic strife which left the Roman empire in shambles (McKay et al. 167).

According to the Bagster translation by Ernest Cushing Richardson about Eusebius' The Life of the Blessed Emperor Constantine, Eusebius depicted Constantine's realization that"...of the many emperors who had preceded him, those who had rested their hopes in a multitude of gods,... met with an unhappy end" (18; bk 1, ch. XXVII). Eusebius made it clear that Constantine realized that the pagan emperors met their demise, thus he changed his approach and believed that Christianity and God would help save the empire from ruin. Emperor Diocletian denounced Christianity and urged people to accept his divine authority which was given to him by the Roman gods (Smarr January 25, 2017). This combined with the creation of buildings denouncing Christianity led to numerous revolts against Diocletian's rule (Smarr January 25, 2017). This paved a path for Christianity's takeover of the Roman empire. Thus, for a short period of time it seemed as if the relationship between Christianity and Rome was deteriorating, but with Constantine initiating the acceptance of Christianity and Theodosius making it the religion of the empire in 380, it became the most important religion in the Roman empire (McKay et al. ...

When resources become limited, organisms must compete for those organisms. Intra–specific competition occurs between emperor penguin species, when they compete for nesting areas. This event gets intense because members of the same species share the same resources. Emperor Penguins are basically endangered species because the majority of colonies will have lost half of their populations by the end of the century. Every few minutes, emperor penguins leap out of the water when they are seeking for food. They are preyed on by seals and other animals, where they become vulnerable when entering and exiting water at the beginning and end of breeding seasons. The Emperor penguins mainly feed on fish, squid and krill. They search for their meals in the open sea or in the gaps in the sea ice.

He was a strong and effective leader through his discipline, self–assurance and nationalism, whose sole passion is to make their country the best it could be. Kaiser Wilhelm II was born on January 27, 1859 to Prince Frederick of Prussia and princess Victoria of the United Kingdom. Prince Fredrick then fell ill and died after just 99 days of his reign and Wilhelm II took the throne at just the age of 29.

This is explained when "The Emperor, who himself sees to everything, has so much to do in reading all these documents that if he wishes to examine each in detail–––which with him is a principle–––he cannot allow himself an instant 's rest."(Leudet). This is a very important aspect of his personality to analyze as a leader because through his actions and values, he clearly puts his country first before himself. His persistence to be In control of everything is something to be admired because he was even able to push Otto von Bismarck out who can be a very persuasive and aggressive man who has been involved with the monarchy for a long time. This creates an image of the monarchy as a leader as caring and considerate in the most graceful way which leads to respect. This attitude as a monarch, towards his image is something many leaders do not do. Some monarchs have an entitled attitude and value their pompous image above all. While Wilhelm is approaching his image in a noble and modest fashion where he is here to take care of the people and country even if it keeps him up all night. He believes in doing things and solving issue in the moments and not wasting time (Leudet). This principle is very admirable and inspiring because it shows that as a good leader, he is there to guide the people with his full effort.

HiroHito, who was the highest spiritual authority and commander–in–chief of the armed forces, fired the prime minister in 1929. The two prime ministers to follow were both assassinated. One was shot and mortally wounded, and the one to follow was murdered by naval officers who had quarrels with a treaty limiting the number of Japanese warships. After that, all prime ministers were pulled from the military rather than form political parties, which disbanded altogether in 1940. Around the same time, Japan and China's conflict were growing.

The dropping of the krill population led to a food shortage for the penguins, leading to a population drop of their own. Another problem, the ice melting due to climate change. Climate change, a leading effect, caused by the "greenhouse effect" which refers to warming that happens when heat gets trapped by the atmosphere that radiates from Earth towards space. Some gases block heat and it's ability to escape causing the planet to overall "heat up". According to ucar.edu "too little ice and the colony gets more exposed and vulnerable to predation," (Leifert). This leads to the penguins having less space to stay concealed from predators such as animals like skuas, kelp gulls, and giant petrels. These predators come after the chicks especially as they cannot defend themselves. This lack of ice leading to less protection making the innocent penguins more vulnerable to predators. Another cause, the excessive fishing and the careless efforts to enforce safety while doing so. Fishing efforts over the past couple of years significantly increased. The penguin's prey such as anchovy and sardine stocks get caught decreasing the penguin's food supply. According to Science Daily, "As fishing efforts around the globe have multiplied several fold over the last few decades, penguins are now competing with people for enough food," (Science Daily).

Emperor penguins tend to hunt for quick, midwater squid as well as fish and therefore they need to be capable of diving to relatively deeper and remain submerged for longer period of time, in relation to other penguin species. Emperor penguins can dive to depths of approximately 550–565 metres towards the sea floor which is known as the "twilight zone" where less light is able to penetrate the surface of the water.

This is because the female Emperor desires a partner who is able to survive throughout the unfavourable environment during the long fasting period whilst incubating the egg produced by the female. Once the female lays her egg, both parents alternate between incubating and protecting the eggs as well as caring for the chicks once they're hatched while the female hunts for food. So, while the female returns to sea in order to forage food, the male is left to fend for him and his egg and consequently chicks, this can last for approximately 2 months and the male penguins can potentially lose up to 45% (potentially 20 kilograms) of their overall body fat over the breeding season. Therefore, it is incredibly important for a female to find a fat partner, as the larger the partner, the longer he will be able to fast while she forages for food, and protect their eggs and consequently their chicks. To emphasize and flaunt their size, the male Emperor penguins produce a call of sorts in order to attract a suitable female, whilst performing and waving their flippers/wings around in order to draw attention to themselves.

This emphasizes the type of leader he was and how much heart he had when it comes down to dealing with his own people.

He believed that good government depended on letting the people live at rest and that stirring up trouble is no different from preventing trouble from occurring. Because of his intelligence, reverence to Confucianism and rational way of thinking, he was able to reign as Emperor of a stabilized and prosperous Manchu Dynasty for 61 years.

This caused the empress to grow an addiction and made Pu Yi look like a fool at a party. In general Chinese society opium made workers, traders, merchants useless. With this China grew weaker as a country, making China an easy target for other countries to come in and gain power. The warlords in China and Japan were great examples. In the film warlords were almost a constant mention, but it was never fully disclosed who warlords were or what their purpose was during the dramatic changes in China. The Warlord Period, which was happening during Pu Yi's time as a figurehead, not as an emperor, was a time of despair. Until the middle of the 1920s the warlords were a problem to the country of China. They became a danger because "they now were the possessors of modern weapons, which united them with their suppliers, the Western powers, and gave them command and money and resources." (Morton, 181) Warlords were a symbol of the confusion and misguidance China was under as reform in government and the influence of other countries was taking hold.

The taxes she placed were, "taxes including a household levy, a graduated tax based on property assessment, and a land levy collected on acreage basis." In doing this she spent far less money on military expenditures, therefore saving money for other uses to better China. Her military brutality came in handy when they had attacks from the Turks. In 689 the Turks invaded Chinese land. In retaliation to this Empress Wu gathered up 450,000 soldiers to get rid of the Turks, but they failed to fight them off.
