Imperial Rome saw the rise of good and bad emperors. How much do you really know about their lives?
To this day, we feel the influence of imperial Rome. After all, imperial Rome was one of the first successful “melting pots” of cultures. The Romans took what worked and discarded what didn’t work, showing that it was possible to have a stable, centralized government over an extremely large area.
But there’s also another side to imperial Rome. Intrigue, treachery, love of power, narcissism, and lunacy—these are all interrelated in the fascinating history of imperial Rome. If you like Game of Thrones, you’ll most certainly like this audiobook; the only thing is, it has no dragons.
But you don’t need fictional beings to appreciate what very real humans did thousands of years ago. And Roman emperors, in spite of being worshiped like gods, were just that: real human beings with their own good and bad sides. By delving deeper into the lives of Roman emperors, we can understand the Roman history and ourselves better.
There is much to discover within this audiobook. Some of what you learn includes the following:
- The downfall of the Roman Republic and the emergence of the illustrious Roman Empire;
