The articles "the" and "that" I came across the phrase "But they all shared that ability to achieve power and .... to keep it". Why the article "that" and not "the" here? thank you in advance...

"That" is indicative. Figuratively, you are pointing at it. "Look at that!" "The" fits just as well, but the sentence is not 'directed'.
