How did the respect of the Roman Emperors fall after Octavian? The respect of the Roman Emperors fell after Octavian because the bloodline was lost and the emperors did some shady things to lose the respect of their people. “Respect is earned. Honesty is appreciated. Trust is gained. Loyalty is returned.” - Unknown. The Roman Empire came around during the reign of Octavian. Octavian was the first Emperor of Rome. Emperors were born into royalty by the bloodline. It was, what is now known as the Golden Age, a time where a city of bricks turned into a city of marble. Morals were reformed, laws were established, and imports and exports were encouraged. During this time, Rome was underpopulated and needed a baby boom. They had a strong economical currency system. It was also the era, in which concrete was created by the Romans. Octavian ruled this city of marble for several years and after his time as emperor ran up, the city of marble started to crumble for many reasons, one being: the emperors after
In Julius Caesar written by, William Shakespeare, we can see the different ways that Brutus is the tragic hero. A tragic hero is someone, who is usually noble, that makes an error in their judgement which ultimately comes back to haunt them. We can see that this is the case from Brutus because he makes a bad judgment decision. Brutus was a noble man that was well-respected and spoke very well. His great friend Julius Caesar was getting too tyrannical and he had to do something about it. At least this is what was said to him by Cassius. He betrayed his friend, Caesar, which showed his flaw as it backfired and came back to have bad conflicts. He was dead by the end of the play which shows his external conflict but he was hurt from the loss of
Caesar Augustus was and still is titled as "the greatest emperor of Rome to ever live." He lived from 63 BC to 14 AD. In 27 BC, the Senate gave him the name Augustus, which means divine, and that's where his title originated from.

Augustus was also the first to create a standing army and he brought peace and prosperity amongst Rome during the chaos, after Julius's death.
Adams book is a superb view into the life of Caligula and shows a little bit better look at the Roman Emperor that Winterling’s. The only reason I have for saying so is because of the different variables they focused on. Winterling’s psychological approach makes complete sense, however it is harder to prove something in the mind of an individual as opposed to observing their
Nero created a huge impact on Rome showing some of his achievements over his lifetime causing him to be fit for king. First, he reduced taxes, regularly distributed grain to the unfortunate people, and staged huge sights to see to entertain the Romans. This shows Nero helped people benefit giving
Although there are five emperors, I compare Augustus Ceasar to Marcus Arelius. They both had lots of achievements for their empire, which made them unforgettable. Marcus Arelius was a very successful man leading the Roman Army to a victory against the Parthian Empire in the eastern part of Central Europe. While fighting and defeating many other rulers he accomplished in the Marcomannic Wars. As same with Augustus Ceaser, he also had many wars that he was successful in. Bravery and courage are one of the similar characteristics being equal between them, as they both fought for themselves and the people of Rome. The leader in the modern time that I think is a good leader is the US president Barack Obama. He is the first African American president
Augustus was the founder of the Roman Empire, and a very successful emperor. Augustus was successful in creating a disguised military monarch because he was able to provide for people with his vast wealth, he managed to take Rome by conquest of land, and he declined any title that may have given him more power than other roman rulers.
We Three Kings of the Roman Empire Years after the murder of Julius Caesar, Rome began a new era of government power. The exact year of the empire’s start is debated, but many believe emperors began ruling in 31 B.C., following the victory at Actium (History.com Staff). The Julio-Claudian Dynasty ruled
The most interesting thing I found in my research about Rome was that Gordian III took the throne at age 13, becoming the youngest emperor of Ancient Rome. I also found that many of the Roman emperors were psychotic. Mad emperor Caligula ordered his legions to collect shells on the beach in order to prove that he had "conquered the sea". Nero killed his mother and his wife and attempted to instate his favorite horse, Incitatus, as a priest and consul, and ordered a marble stable built for him with chairs and couches on which the horse never sat. Emperor Commodus once ordered all the cripples, hunchbacks, and generally undesirables in the city to be rounded up, thrown into the arena, and forced to hack one another to death with meat cleavers. I feel like the emperors were over-glorified. They were allowed to do whatever they wanted, and killed whoever got on their way. Roman emperors had no limits. I feel like both the emperors and the patricians were greedy, eating the finest foods and wearing the finest clothes while the majority of the Romans were very poor. They did not take much consideration for the poor.
During the Imperial period, Roman Emperors were chosen by hereditary, where as today rulers are elected into office. For every good emperor you are sure to have a bad one over time. Even if one was not going to be a good
