If all the most infamous and greatest conquerors from history were brought back to life, what would they think of their countries during modern times?
Let me take a humorous glimpse into their minds. They are all dead, so they wouldn't complain about what I am about to say acting as if I were them. So I wouldn't mind. Here they come:
- Genghis Khan: "Wow, my once mighty Mongol Empire has now become a land of smartphones and social media! I conquered with my horseback archers, but now it seems like people conquer with memes and hashtags. Times have certainly changed!"
- Julius Caesar: "Et tu, modern Rome? I thought my mighty Roman Empire would stand the test of time, but now it's all about fast cars and fast food. I guess 'Veni, Vidi, Venti' would be the new motto now!"
- Napoleon Bonaparte: "Mon Dieu! My Grande Armée has been replaced by drones and robots. France's borders have changed, but the croissants are still delicious. I wonder if I can still fit into my old uniform!"
- Alexander the Great: "Hephaestion, look at the size of these cities! My empire has expanded beyond my wildest dreams. But what's with all the traffic jams and skyscrapers? I preferred conquering with my trusty sword, not with urban planning!"
- Attila the Hun: "Hunbelievable! My once fierce Hunnic Empire is now a bustling globalized world. I used to plunder and raid, but now people do it online with cyber attacks. I miss the simplicity of the good old pillaging days!"
- Joan of Arc: "Sacré bleu! France has come a long way since my time. Women can now wear pants and even lead countries! My divine mission to save France seems to have inspired a lot of progress. Vive la femme!"
- Qin Shi Huang: "My Terracotta Army is still standing strong, but my mighty Qin Dynasty has evolved into a modern powerhouse. The Great Wall has grown even longer, and now there are high-speed trains running through it. I wonder if my quest for immortality is finally within reach!"
Hope you enjoyed my article! I really enjoyed imagining myself as the infamous conquerors from history.
