9 An angry emperor turns an island into a peninsula
At the height of the war between the rich Rome and Persia, Alexander the Great decided to worship in a temple on the island of Tire. The island's leaders declined because they wanted to remain neutral in the war against Persia and the emperor's permission to worship there would send a message to the Persians that Tire represented the Romans. They told the emperor to pray instead in a temple in Old Tire that was on the mainland.
Alexander, annoyed by this demonstration of disrespect, saw this as a declaration of war, occupied Old Tire and built a bridge to the island for 6 months using tree trunks and stones from the ruins of Old Tire. When he reached Tire, he crucified almost everyone in the city and sold the rest to slavery.
Reifen is still a peninsula today and technically it is part of the mainland.

During the reign of the Mongol Empire, Genghis Khan sent a large commercial caravan to Khwarezmia, an empire in the Middle East, in the hope of forming an alliance. However, the local governor did not greet these travelers, arrested them, and sentenced them to death.

Instead of hearing what they had to say, the Shah beheaded one of the ambassadors and sent the others back with shaved heads, which was a great insult to the Khan. Genghis Khan began planning his revenge. He entered the empire by force and the Shah had to flee to an island on the Caspian coast to die.

Maybe he should have directed his paranoia into building a better army.
