The Roman Emperors
Everyone's heard of the Roman Empire. Everyone knows of the massive impact they've had on Europe and the rest of the world, from their Latin language to chariot races and gladiators to the Forum Romanum and Colosseum. But how many times have we thought about the actual people of the Empire? The Praetorians... the senators... and of course, the emperors themselves. As the one of the two "history people" in my school's Certamen (a Latin Jeopardy competition) team, I've had to learn about them in a depth I've never before imagined I ever would, and I've grown very fond of all of them. They're not just facts in a text book... they were men, real working, breathing, ingenious, cunning, brave men, each with their own different story. There's Octavian, more commonly known as Augustus, the first emperor once he defeated Marc Antony and Cleopatra at Actium in 31 BC, who was also a nephew of Julius Caesar (who was not an emperor, by the way). There's Nero, who supposedly fiddled while Rome burned (he should have actually played the lyre), and Trajan (under whom the empire reached her greatest extent in AD 117). There's Commodus (who fancied himself the Roman Heracles), Caligula (who named his horse consul), Didius Julianus (who bought the throne with bribes of 25,000 sesterces per Praetorian Guard), Elagabalus (who thought himself the priest of a Sun God), and Vitellius (a glutton). But through all their differences and past all their conspiracies, they're brought together by one common title: Emperors of the Roman Empire.

The Layout and Name
This layout features, from right to left, Augustus, Vespasian, Tiberius, and Hadrian. The name, Domini et Dei, means Lords/Masters and Gods, the plural of Dominus et Deus (ie, Lord/Master and God), a title the emperor Domitian adopted. The phrase at the bottom of the page, Vae! Puto Deus Fio! (Alas, I am becoming a God, I think) was uttered by the emperor Vespasian as he died.

The Emperors
The emperors went by many titles, especially those with high military achievements. I've listed the name they are most commonly known by and in parentheses, their name at birth if available. The dates provided are not their lifespan, but their reign (which, on almost all of the emperors) is up to their death. All dates are AD unless otherwise noted.
