Xzeres had Leonidads dead body decapicated and humiliated. So enough with this Persia bullshit.
They enslaved and tortured people them too.
They had no honor.
Atleast in greek they invented democracy, just like the roman senate was corrupt, atleast it strived for something greater then a king and oligarchy.
Actually people in persia were not as oppressed as previously thought. The “democracy” the Greeks fought for was actually more oppressive considering it was only the land-owning male elite that voted for anything. True persia had a king, but their sovereignty was no different than what Alexander was aiming to do with his own supposed empire.
shame about the rest of the music
4:15 the music and the scene is so perfectly played…It’s amazing ♥

You’re more bothered by the fact he has an Irish accent than the fact he’s speaking ENGLISH?

Caesar refused to lay down his power even though he knew that in Rome it was permitted to hold a dictatorship for only six months.
Thanks for accepting my apology.
I don’t really know; I have always admired Caesar’s military accomplishments, and honestly now that I’m thinking about it. The things Caesar did for the people. For instance he conquered an empire the size of old Persia, but gave them a republic. I suppose it’s because he set in motion the ability for later emperors to be harsh dictators i.e. Nero. But that doesn’t make Caesar a tyrant. So my apologies Why do you suppose Alexander was a tyrant?
No worries. No hard feelings? Anyway, I was referring to Alexander being a tyrant. I don’t really see how Caesar was a tyrant. Why do you think he is?
I’m sorry for my harsh words, and cocky attitude, I really am. But you said it yourself that he was a tyrant! In your first comment, “But he never wanted to be a tyrant.”
Is that so? My apologies then I’ll just bow down to your excellency, because I guess my statement is invalid. Thanks a lot social networking habits! Piss off you filthy putz!
Btw don’t use hashtags. You lose all credibility.
Firstly Caesar was never a tyrant. He was beloved by his people. When he was assassinated there was rioting in the streets for days. The burning buildings of Rome lit the night as if it were day. Would the people of a tyrant riot for the heads of those who killed him. And as for Caesar fighting on a horse behind his legion, have you not heard of the Siege of Alesia when he literally fought and was injured in the front lines when he was facing an army of 300,000 against his legion of 50,000.
#SaidNoOneEver No leader ever wants to be a tyrant. Caesar was the first Roman dictator to elect himself for lifetime in “office”, and thus his assassination, he started the transition of Rome from a republic to an empire. That automatically rules him out for the “Best Leader Award”
Alexander, freed unified Greece from oppression of the Persian Empire.
Alexander fought by his army, Julius Caesar sat on his horse behind he legions. What is your argument?
I’m going to assume he said something along the lines of “Shame Alexander was gay.” Should have mentioned that they had no God or bible to distinguish what homosexuality is. It wasn’t a sin, and wasn’t abnormal in the Greek culture. So I agree with you completely.
4:00 I love the music. One of the best songs of Vangelis
