The Top Ten

1 Augustus

The only one who was fair to his people.

Father of the Fatherland

If you want a rainbow, you have to deal with the rain. - Gaius Octavius

2 Trajan

one of the best spanish leaders in history

I love trajan because is spanish

Rome at its greatest extent.

the best spanish emperor of rome, hadrian is the second

3 Marcus Aurelius

Marcus in a nutshell: KILL ALL THE CHRISTIANS! He's also my favorite

Ah, but the last of the Five Great Emperors.

There is no evidence Marcus Aurelius ever persecuted Christians. Eusebius is a liar and Psuedo-Historian. He admitted it.

4 Hadrian

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.

5 Constantine

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

Best

6 Diocletian

Best emperor

7 Claudius
8 Aurelian

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

Chad

9 Vespasian

Top 5, but often doesn’t get recognition as such. Brought stability after the year of 4 emperors and built the Coliseum.

10 Julius Nepos

He is also very forgettable.

One of the last

The Contenders

11 Titus
12 Antoninus Pius
13 Nerva

Wow! I'm not the only person who knows who this guy is!

I learned about nerva

14 Domitian

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.

15 Tiberius

He's underrated.

16 Commodus

Commodus, probably one of the worst emperors. He didn’t care about being the Emperor. This started the fall of the Empire.

17 Septimius Severus

He was simply the greatest roman emperor. under his reign the roman empire reached its greatest extent.

18 Romulus Augustulus
19 Julian
20 Majorian
21 Justinian I
22 Julius Caesar Gaius Julius Caesar, known by his cognomen Julius Caesar, was a Roman politician and military general who played a critical role in the events that led to the demise of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Roman Empire.

Best emperor of all time

23 Gallienus
24 Severus Alexander
25 Nero Nero was the last Roman emperor of the Julio-Claudian dynasty. He was adopted by his great-uncle Claudius and became Claudius' heir and successor. Like Claudius, Nero became emperor with the consent of the Praetorian Guard.

He was the worst emporer in history! He is also one of the most evil people in history. Why is he on here?

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
