08 Otho

June 25th, 2016

08_Otho.jpgOtho! He was a man with a dream, a simple dream... a dream to become the most powerful man in the world! Did he succeed? Or did a combination of sailors, traffic jams, moody guards and incompetent generals let him down? find out in this week's episode of Roman Emperors: Totals Rankium! 

07 Galba

June 17th, 2016

07_Galba.jpgStrict. If you were to choose one adjective from the multitude of adjectives available, strict would be the one that you would use (knowing full well that Gala would appreciate the subjunctive form). So what if he is the first of four emperors in 69CE? So what that he doesn't last long? Who cares if he is clearly a public school headmaster from 1950's England in disguise? All that needs to be answered is, does he have a certain Je Na Caesar? (and why, oh why, did he not just pay the bloody Praetorian Guard a damn bonus?) 

06 Nero

June 10th, 2016

06_Nero.jpgThe last of the Julii-Claudians; Nero is one of the most famous of all the emperors... But does he deserve to be so? He may have a coffee shop named after him, but does he have that certain something? Find out how well he knew his mother, how much he loved to sing, how many plots he had to kill people and how not to commit suicide.
