Queen Victoria - 783 words
Queen Victoria was one of the greatest women ever to sit on the throne of England. Her long reign lasted from 1837 to 1901. Her efforts during these years changed England very much. Ironically, Queen Victoria was never meant to reign England. Her seat on the throne came about in an unusual way. After the death of Queen Victoria's uncle, King George IV, the throne was meant to be passed on to one of George III's grandchildren. However, no one in the royal family had given birth to any legitimate children except for the Duke of Kent, Victoria's father. So at the age of 18, Victoria, daughter of Duke Edward of Kent, became Queen Victoria of England. This was due to a distant relation to the Que ...

Ghandi A Great Leader - 1,549 words
Few men have ever had as much of an effect on our world as Mohandas Gandhi, though he used the message of peace and love, rather than war and destruction. One time a prominent lawyer in South Africa, Gandhi gave up practicing law and returned to India in order to help ease the suffering of the repressed people of his homeland.

As a consequence, opium addiction and illegal smuggling soared corrupting the government and China spiraled into what some call the worst drug case in human history.

Nevertheless, greed of big profits had grown as the trade had grown. "As the higher auth ...

Opium War - 1,588 words
The Opium War only lasted from 1839-1842 and 1856-1860, but it was far more devastating to China's view as the center of the world. China had always treated the outside as inferior and felt that when faced with conflict they could overcome them. Until the nineteenth century, China had been able to withstand the Western Powers not because they were stronger, but because of a lack of conflict. What the Qing dynasty, the emperor family at reign during this time period, could not know was this confrontation would mean an end to China's isolation. Also that it would indirectly contribute to the weakening of Imperial rule, which would be overthrown in the early twentieth century by communism. When ...
