Winning every battle Alexander proved to be an intelligent and daring military leader and extended his empire from Greece to India.

Formation of the Roman Republic: 509 B.C.- 27 B.C.
The formation of the Roman Republic was important to the development of Western Civilization because it gave us the basis for our constitution and our politics and law. By doing this the Romans came to view law as an expression of the people and not a creation of gods or kings. During this time the Roman Republic also distinguished itself from the Greeks by practicality and common sense rather than the rational thinking of the Greeks. This helped the Roman Republic to maintain a tight grip on the reigns of power unlike the Greeks who suffered from tyrants.

Rome had acquired an empire but did not have government to support it; with not much left to conquer Rome suffered from numerous internal conflicts caused by the pursuit of luxury and money over civil duties and loyalty. Another one of these internal conflicts was economical strife caused by agricultural crisis that came from the devastation of numerous wars, increased slave labor, and less resources for their large number of war veterans. All of these conflicts led to the Gracchan Revolution that tried to lead to political reform however it instead had a violent end and led to an era of power struggles and civil wars. The amassing internal conflicts reached its peak with the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 B.C. Though Rome suffered...
