Worst Roman Emperors

The Top TenXW

1Caligula

The guy slept with his sisters! And I see no reason for Augustus to be on this list!

He killed his wife cut off people's hands and even took often saw his enemies an object

For toture he cut people spines and spinal cords from the chest to croch

2Nero

The Beast in Revelation was Caligula, and the number was originally 616

3Commodus
4Elagabalus

Should be in the top 5. Ya, of course a gender confused teenager would make a great emperor.

Executed many innocents, enforced a religion unfamiliar to all of Rome, prostituted himself. Augustus doesn't belong here at all, but Elagabulus does.

5Tiberius

Reigned during the time Pontius Pilate did. - sharp10

6Caracalla

Easily the worst Roman emperor of them all, judging both by damage done to Roman Empire during his reign and - even more importantly - by the lasting damage to it. A complete psychopath, he not only spread murder and corruption through Rome - like so many of his "worst colleagues" - but, in contrast to his contenders - also left a trail of destruction on his journeys throughout the entire empire. But his worst - and lasting - deed was his complete reliance on only the army. His unsustainable overpay of the soldiers and the extreme elevation of the army's power on the back of everybody else in the empire lay one of the seeds to Rome's destruction. The next hundred years of Roman history would see an army running rampage, which in turn would play an important part in Rome's end.

I can't believe that I had to add him. He wasn't as evil as Caligula or Nero, but he killed more than them. - pryan96

7Domitian
8Augustus

Why is he on this list, he brought a new golden age and peace

9Crassus
10Julius Caesar

Julius Caesar was a great leader and was not an emperor - 2storm
