Some were military in nature and engage themselves in politics while someare just ordinary ones who gathered the voices of their people, unified each of it and stand firmagainst all odds while resolving general conflicts. They usually have exceptional visions and widedreams for their people. Having that ability to enthuse and to inspire many, they shaped each nation
