    Default Ave Caesar!

    Hey fellow monasterians. I've been looking through my roman history and found a tiny difficulty. It is hard to find a place where all the Roman emperors are mentioned chronologically.

    So this shall be the place.

    I do not know many of them myself so I'll let you, most learned scholars to post them.

    I propose starting with Gaius Julius Caesar, but I do not know the exact dates of his birth, death and ascension to power, which is something I would like to have for every emperor.

    Also, when it comes to that, please state if you are referring to the Eastern or Western part of the empire.

    Good posting!

    For information on the chronology of the Roman Emperors, I would recommend Chronicle of the Roman Emperors:The Reign-by-reign Record of the Rulers of Imperial Rome by Chris Scarre. Click here for the amazon.co.uk listing of it.

    The book deals with all the Roman emperors from Augustus to Romulus Augustulus, and gives enough detail on each one to give you a basic knowledge about each of their lives without flooding you with information.

    There is also Chronicle of the Roman Republic: The Rulers of Ancient Rome from Romulus to Augustus by Philip Matyszak, which talks about the most important people in the Roman Republic (and also deals with the early kings). See here for more.
    "Look Iíve got my old pledge card a bit battered and crumpled we said weíd provide more turches churches teachers and we have I can remember when people used to say the Japanese are better than us the Germans are better than us the French are better than us well itís great to be able to say weíre better than them I think Mr Kennedy well we all congratulate on his baby and the Tories are you remembering what Iím remembering boom and bust negative equity remember Mr Howard I mean are you thinking what Iím thinking Iím remembering itís all a bit wonky isnít it?"

    Smile Re: Ave Caesar!

    Many of the "emperors" mentioned above were only usurpers and never were recognized by the Senate or the people , only by their legion , so you have to list them separately

    Also,

    Iulius Caesar was never Emperor-the first was Octavian.

    The whole story is very interesting however; I'd be more than willing to direct you to some resources if you wish to study the fall of the Republic and the start of the Empire.
