The romance of Octavian, emperor of Rome, abridged from a manuscript in the Bodleian library. This book beautifully narrates the life of Rome's first emperor, Gaius Octavius--later to be called Caesar Augustus.
It was written exceptionally well. While reading it, you can see how the author creatively showed some of Augustus' emotional side, usually absent in our textbooks, without sacrificing the impartiality in discussing this /5. Augustus (also known as Octavian) was the first emperor of ancient Rome.
Augustus came to power after the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 BCE. In 27 BCE Augustus “restored” the republic of Rome, though he himself retained all real power as the princeps, or “first citizen,” of Rome.
Augustus held that title until his death in 14 CE.
