How did Kingship evolve?

This is a theory existing among scholars those who study human history. I do not pledge accuracy. This may not be the final truth. Some others may have another theory. Still this story narrates the most probable theory on the evolvement of Kingship.

How did Kingship evolve?This is a theory existing among scholars those who study human history. I do not pledge accuracy. Thismay not be the final truth. Some others may have another theory. Still this story narrates the mostprobable theory on the evolvement of Kingship.In the Old Testament part of the Bible there is a Babylonian King called Nimrod. The
name ‘Nimrod’ has
been proverbial from the earliest times as a mighty hunter. He was the first who claimed to be a "mightyone in the earth." Babel was the beginning of his kingdom, which he gradually enlarged. Nimrod issupposed to have begun the tower of Babel.It is fine to believe that Nimrod himself was a hunter. He might have been a mighty man withextraordinary physical strength. Physical strength was the most valuable asset in the ancient times, asintellect and talent are today.Man in his early ages lived a nomadic life. The life style of man evolved through various stages sincethen. The nomadic life was uncertain and uncomfortable. It was a restless life. So man decided to stay inone place for longer time. He chose fertile lands and moderate climate and permitted other people tolive aside. He tolerated his co inhabitants for he realized the strength of unity of men.The enemy of men was not other men, for all men were struggling to survive. The enemies of men werewild animals. So in the wisdom of the ancients they built their huts closely together at one place andmaintained their arable farm at a length. They stayed together and worked together.They kept watch in the night to warn them of the attack of wild animals. At every siren from the nightwatch, all men in the village woke and attacked the enemy chasing them out of their village. Thecommon enemy bound them together in all efforts. All men had to come together against the commonenemy. All men in the village were considered as warriors. It was the beginning of 
today’s compulsory
military service.As this situation continued, the more mighty men stood in the forefront became a special warrior groupand later they we lead by the still more mighty man. This man was the most ferocious warrior among allmen in the group. He was unequalled in strength, courage and war tactics among all men in the village.So he became the leader all of warriors, all men in the village and hence the leader of the village itself.Gradually and naturally he demanded and received respect and obedience. He was granted with specialprivileges by the villagers. As long as his might remained the best he was unchallenged. Might was thegreatest asset of the time.The privileges grew. His authority grew. His commitments grew.A wise hunter leader of the village, tired of chasing animals every night, formulated a better war tactic -offence is better than defense.Attacking and chasing away wild animals when they come to attack the village is only defense. Offence isgoing into the forest and attacking wild animals in expectation of an attack in the night. It renderedmore and lasting peace to the village and rest to the leader. So he went into the nearby forest to aconsiderable length and attacked and chased away wild animals. Continuous offensive attack by the
