Famous People From Roman Empire
Turn the pages of history and you would be enthralled by the fascinating facts of ancient Roman personalities. They were strong and powerful and exerted a profound influence over the Roman civilization and that of the world. Did you know that Julius Caesar, the dictator of Rome who marked the end of Roman Republic was not an emperor? In fact, he was a ‘dictator perpetuus’ or ‘dictator in perpetuity’. Fondly remembered as the lover of Cleopatra, Julius Caesar was a multi-skilled man – he was a general, a statesman, a lawgiver, a jurist, an orator, a poet, a historian, a philologer, a mathematician and an architect. Augustus Caesar was the first emperor of Roman Empire. Now that is a known fact but not many know that Augustus reigned during the life of Jesus Christ. Such was his reverence amongst the roman public that posthumously he was numbered amongst the roman Gods. Did you know that before turning into a mad tyrant, Nero was a modest and philosophic youth? His cruelty and brutality reached the peak when he ordered the city of Rome to be fired. While Rome was engulfed in mad fury of fire, Nero did little to salvage his people or the city and instead blamed the Christians for the tyranny.
