THE COMPARISON 2 The Comparison of Ancient Female Rulers After The Civil Rights Act of 1964 there have been many female rulers. Today it is not uncommon to see a female in a leading position. Before 1964 it was frowned upon to see a female be a leader. Even though it was not liked there were many female rulers who became leaders. In this paper I am going to compare and contrast between two ancient female rulers then compares them with a modern leader. Tang Empress Wu Zetian (also known as Empress Wu and Wu Zhao) ruled China around 690-705 AD. Wu was born in 624 and her parents were rich and came from a noble family. When she was a child she was taught to read and write Chinese classics and to play music. Empress Wu Zetian of the Tang Dynasty was the only known female monarch of China. She ruled the empire for over half a century. Empress Wu still remains the most influential, remarkable, and mysterious woman in the Chinese history (McMahon 2013). In the book Cleopatra: A Biography written by Duane W. Roller it was stated that Cleopatra was an accomplished diplomat, naval commander, administrator, linguist, and author, who skillfully managed her kingdom in the face of a deteriorating political situation and increasing Roman involvement. Cleopatra was the only women in classical antiquity to be able to rule independently. She desperately tried to keep alive a dying kingdom in the face of the overwhelming Roman pressure. Cleopatra was born in 69 B.C. and she was the last of the Ptolemaic dynasty, which ruled Egypt

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
