Julian the Apostate
Julian the Apostate

Emperor Julian the Apostate (reigned 361-363 CE) went down in history as a sensible and righteous Roman ruler. He became famous, among others, for his actions to eliminate bureaucracy and improve the rule of law.

Proof of this is, among other things, his decision in 362 CE. Namely, the last ruler professing the old Roman religion fined himself 10 pounds of gold for exceeding his powers as a judge.
