  • Capetian Kings
    980 words
    The suggestion that the Capetian kings of the tenth and eleventh century were weak and merely Primus inter pares, appears a valid one. There has been a trend ever since the age of Charlemagne for the position of the kings of the Frankish State to be fragile. There are some historians however; who would refute this description of the Capetian kings of this period, most notably the historian Fawtier, who suggested that the king was truly a powerful medieval leader in the mould of the modern notion...
  • Tut's Tomb King
    498 words
    It's easy to understand why the Valley of the Kings was not discovered until the 1800's. It is located over a mountain ridge and in a secluded valley, miles from civilization. The Valley of the Kings contains approximately sixty-two excavated tombs, not all of which are royal. Some belonged to the privileged members of nobility and were not decorated. The earliest tombs of such kings as Thutmose I contained stairways, corridors, and right-angle bends; whereas, the latter tombs of such kings as R...
  • Palette Of Narmer And Apollo Of Veii
    815 words
    The two works of art that have been chosen to compare and contrast are The Palette Of Narmer and Apollo of Veii. The Palette Of Narmer dates back to the Hierakonpolis Dynasty 1 in 3100 BCE.

This artwork depicts the dawn of a new age of man and his use of writing and pictographs in art. The statue of Apollo, from Veii comes from the Etrusca...

    A World Without Engineers Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away, on the planet Zovirax, there was an evil king, King Syphilis, who was mighty pleased with himself, for he had just banished all the engineers on the planet to work in the Pixie Stick Powder mines on the moons of Gluteus. 'You see,' he told his sycophantic servants and lackeys, 'I have solved two problems with one simple executive order. I have rid the planet of those annoying, nerdy, know-it-all, engineers.

  • Depiction Of Egyptian Rulers
    691 words
    The relationship between Egyptian rulers and their gods were ever present in many examples of Egyptian art throughout the many changes in leadership.

The Palette of Narmer, Seated Statue of Khafre, and Akhenaten and Nefertiti and their Children are three prime examples of the differences in depiction from one period to another. The Palette of Narmer, done around 3000 B.C. in the Pr...
  • King And His Allies
    1,525 words
    April 12, 2005 According to Lewis, Martin Luther King, JR's goals and tactics can be divided into two periods, before Selma and after. The first period is distinguished by a decade of pioneering protest tactics in use to accomplish conventional citizenship rights for Afro-Americans. The second, less than three tumultuous years, was a time of nontraditional tactics in search of progressively more fundamental goals for the larger society. The first was moderately triumphant, but its accomplishment...

    The first political congress met about 3000 B.C. It had two groups of people. One was the group of elders and wise men and the other was a group of warrior male citizens. There was, obviously, still the king of the city that had the final and absolute say in what was going to happen. In this record, the groups were trying to decide between peace with persecution or war and independence. The elders first said that they should try to maintain peace, but the king vetoed that decision and decided, a...

  • Idylls Of The King
    502 words
    The two texts, related to the Arthurian mythology, appear as not having much in common, if were to compare their informational properties. "Idylls of the King" is clearly a poetic piece, while "The Death of King Arthur " is a fine example of medieval prose. Nevertheless, one of the things that they have in common, is an unusual amount of tropology, found in almost every sentence. Back in Medieval times, the English language used to be more rich, from the linguistic point of view. This is one of ...

    Commanders Versus Warriors The art work left by the ancient Egyptians during the Predynastic and Old Kingdom periods were very similar. The Predynastic period preceded the Old kingdom roughly in the years of twenty five hundred B.C.
