What was the nature and extent of the Umayyad Empire? How do you answer this question? What's an empire's nature? HELP PLEASE!
Now it's been a while.. But I'm guessing the nature of an empire is similar to the nature of an animal or human. Like human nature, is our human tendencies. So in a similar fashion, the nature of an empire would be the tendencies of an empire: were they more trade based? More war-oriented? Was the emperor benevolent? Did it have good relations with others? When it conquered did it leave the original ruler in place and not force a culture change? Or was it completely the opposite? What was the culture like?
I answered your questions with more questions... But hopefully it'll help you
The questions certainly helped. I figured that's what they were asking, I just wasn't completely sure. And the extent, would be basically where it extended to?
Definitely. If you want to be more in depth, you can also include the cultural extent! But I'm sure that's a little too much
Thanks so much for the help!
I'm just giving back ;)
