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.
Pomponia Graecina lived in the 1st century CE. She was the wife of the Roman commander and conqueror of Britain Aulus Plautius. She was accused in 57 CE of professing "foreign superstition", which is often associated with Christianity.
The Roman emperor Tacitus ruled in 275-276 CE. Tacitus was to cooperate with the senate and initiated many reforms. In addition, he honored the tragically deceased Aurelian with numerous statues, and punished his murderers.
Roman emperor Aemilianus ruled for several months in 253 CE. Raised to purple by his faithful legions, he overthrew the legal ruler Trebonian Gallus and assumed the throne of Rome for 88 days. The changeling was overthrown by the heir - Valerian.
