In the history of ancient Rome, appeared many famous figures. Many of them have been remembered as cruel tyrants, eg. Caligula, Nero or Caracalla. Others, on the other hand, became famous as great reformers: Augustus, Claudius, Marcus Aurelius, Diocletian, and Constantine the Great. Also, do not forget about the Roman commanders, who often rescued the Roman state from extermination.
The great creators of Roman culture who also significantly influenced the further development of the world were also remembered. I will present people who have become famous for their great deeds.
Quintus Labienus was a Roman commander at the end of the Roman Republic. He was the son of Titus Labienus - the eminent commander of Caesar during the Gallic Wars and later Pompey's supporter in the civil war.
Augustus was the first emperor of Rome in history. At a young age, he was recognized as the main heir to the murdered Caesar, which brought him to the political scene and the final process of the Republic's downfall. Despite his poor health, he proved the ambition and determination that led him to take power.
