Top 10 Greatest Roman Emperors
The Top Ten
The only one who was fair to his people. - Caleb9000
Father of the Fatherland
If you want a rainbow, you have to deal with the rain. - Gaius Octavius
I love trajan because is spanish
Rome at its greatest extent.
Marcus in a nutshell: KILL ALL THE CHRISTIANS! He's also my favorite
There is no evidence Marcus Aurelius ever persecuted Christians. Eusebius is a liar and Psuedo-Historian. He admitted it.
Ah, but the last of the Five Great Emperors. - DieGedankenSindFrei
Hadrian could hold his own in England, an actual wall exists to persuade the invading Celts and Picts in the north to hightail not in the southern direction. This might still be holding at bay the intruders although if even just in imagination as it is possible to exist. - iliescu
The first Christian Monarch in the history of the world.
Which is good, but Philip the Arab might possibly have been the first Christian monarch ever. - BrideiMacBella
Augustus was the best, but voted for Aurelian anyways because he was the best peak value emperor ever. Reunited the entire empire, dealt with the consequences of the necessary evacuation of Dacia splendidly, and was a top ten emperor despite reigning for just 5 years.
Gave Rome an extra century to live
The restorer of the world
Top 5, but often doesn’t get recognition as such. Brought stability after the year of 4 emperors and built the Coliseum.
He is also very forgettable.
One of the last
Wow! I'm not the only person who knows who this guy is! - BrideiMacBella
I learned about nerva
The most underrated of all emperors. He did a lot of good things for poor people and people in the provinces.
The most underrated. His senate destroyed his legacy.
Commodus, probably one of the worst emperors. He didn’t care about being the Emperor. This started the fall of the Empire.
He's underrated. - BruceStark
He was simply the greatest roman emperor. under his reign the roman empire reached its greatest extent.
He was the worst emporer in history! He is also one of the most evil people in history. Why is he on here? - Alpha101
Exactly! He was cruel and violent. For example, he had his first wife beheaded and gave her head to his second wife so she could gloat over it. Then he kicked his second wife to death while pregnant and is said to have fiddled and sang while Rome burned to the ground. I agree, he shouldn't be on this list.
That is scary
