Ancient Roman Navy!
Military mastery of the oceans could be a critical aspect in the success of any land operation, and the Romans were well aware that a formidable naval force could deliver troops and supplies to where they were most needed in the shortest amount of time. Naval boats might also feed besieged ports under enemy attack and, in turn, blockade ports under enemy control. A strong fleet was also required to fight with pirates, who caused havoc on commercial sea-traders and, on occasion, blockaded ports. However, maritime combat had its own set of challenges, with bad weather being the greatest threat to victory, which is why naval battles were primarily restricted to the months of April and November.
Cyrus The Great
Cyrus the Great established the first Persian Empire. Take a deeper look at one of the most significant characters in Near Eastern history. Cyrus the Great (600-530 BC) founded the Achaemenid Empire, often known as the first Persian Empire. At the time of his death, he had constructed the world's greatest empire, reaching from the Mediterranean Sea to the Indus River. Cyrus the Great is also known for his contributions to religion, human rights, philosophy, and literature, as well as for establishing a stable governmental structure to govern his enormous kingdom.
Tyrants of Ancient Greece!
Tyrannies occurred everywhere in Greece, from city-states to the islands of Sicily and Samos. Most historians place the Great Age of Greek Tyranny between 750 and 500 BCE, concluding with Hippias' deposition; however, other writers extend the period into the 4th century BCE, covering Cassander's dictatorial rule in Macedonia as well as the tyrannies of Dionysius I and II in Syracuse.
Xerxes the First's Life and Rule: 9 Facts!

Ruler Xerxes is possibly the most prominent Achaemenid Persian king, best notable for his inability to conquer Greece. Xerxes I was known for severe penalties, womanizing, and depleting the Persian empire's resources. He created massive palaces and other buildings at Persepolis, leaving his imprint on both European and Asian history. Here are nine facts regarding King Xerxes' life and reign.
Ancient Israelite Steps
The Levant region of the Mediterranean Sea, which approximately corresponds to the modern-day State of Israel, was under the rule of the Kingdom of Israel. Historically, the area was referred to as Judea, Palestine, Yehud Medinata, Canaan, Phoenicia, and, until the Romans destroyed it in 136 CE, Syria-Palestina. The area was purportedly founded by Isaac and Jacob, two descendants of the Hebrew patriarch Jacob, also known as Israel, and named after him in the Bible. Joshua, a Hebrew general, is said to have later conquered the area approximately 1250 BCE, following the Exodus from Egypt under Moses.
