My parents or the adults of the house hold are also in charge of me, and I'm in charge of my pets and younger step siblings.
England or Great britan
In the 18th century There were 13 colonies near and on the east coast of america. In those colonies were british citizens who disapproved of their king. So they decided to rebel against him and start a new country. The colonists started rebel movements and eventually went to war against great Britan. The rebels won the war which means that they gained power. Since we were able to achieve freedom from the British, they lost power over us (their previous citizens). That is an Example of a shifting in power from the government to the people (or from the higher power which ever way you want to look at it.)
During the Reign of Cleopatra(the last pharaoh) the Romans and the Egyptians were temporary allies with Caesar and Antony. When Antony died the Romans Started to attack the egyptians and They succeeded. They made Egypt part of the Roman empire which gave them more power and gave the Romans control over the Egyptian people.
The french revolution (in my opinion is the perfect example for this project) was when the people of france rebelled against their Monarchy and noble men. They would catch these people and take them to the town square for public execution. They would stick them in a guillotine and… well you get the idea. That gave the people of france more power than the Government, or should I say monarchy controlling them for hundreds of years.
Also countries are able to schedule plane rides and transportation for olympic competitors to arrive at the games and their hotels.
