There is number of history pages been filled with the title of success for different human races rules and their development covering the pages of the history. In early ages, we see the civilization of Egypt and Greece also Cyprus rule around the Babylon and Persian territory. Later in the middle time, we see Muslim caliphs are prominent on the pages for their rule, and they broke the superpower of that time like Byzantines and Persia, and they controlled over the major area of this historical ruler. In modern age there was Ottoman Empire, Safavid Empire and Mughal empire those were controlling the biggest territories of their time for which later on they been broke into parts and became a part of British colonies (in South Asia). Ottoman Empire was crunched during World War-I History. (n.d.).
While if we look to their power of time territoriality plays a strong role in their rule sustaining for which they use to enhance their power in early ages it was to rule as many areas as you can, and the control will make you superpower while in middle ages it was same. In the modern age, there was bit change in the influence of technology and economic growth which is going on till yet, but now economic factor matters more. As the gunpowder invention was given the invitation to Ottoman Empire to rule over the biggest territory.
To be a sustainable ruler as expansion use to increase there was the most important thing which we see with power is mechanism and communication. The territories were wide, and they use to control rebelling, the crises over and invasion issues because of that they use to invest more on Army. Also, economic growth was also required, and they use to utilize their natural resources and trade because it was the mode of developing their self. In mainly we see there is a proper department of spy and detectives directly approaching the ruler (Kunt et al., 2014).Perhaps we can say for sustaining power they use to increase army and economic growth.
