For those who have a fascination for history, nothing can be more invigorating than a trip to Rome – the seat of historical highs and lows. Rome is the hub of everything antiquity – ancient culture, prehistoric civilization, primeval traditions, antediluvian art and so on. Just a walk down the lanes of Rome would give travellers a feel of primordial culture getting past them. However, much of that wouldn’t have been possible had it not been for the ancient Roman leaders who ruled the Roman Empire. While talking of roman leaders, the first name that strikes the mind is that of Augustus, the first emperor of Rome. Although christened Octavian, he was named Augustus by his senate to honor his greatest achievements. It was under his premiership that Rome prospered and propelled – he created a new constitution for Rome, build roman infrastructure and conquered new territories. Constantine the Great was the first Christian emperor of the Roman Empire. His main achievement was the unification of the divided territory. Justinian was the last emperor. During his rule, he revived the greatness of the Roman Empire and also conducted restoration activities for which he gained the title ‘Last Roman’.
