Octavian is a 14th-century Middle English verse translation and abridgement of a midth century Old French romance of the same name. This Middle English version exists in three manuscript copies and in two separate compositions, one of which may have been written by the 14th-century poet Thomas Chestre who also composed Libeaus Desconus and Sir Launfal.

This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the original. Due to its age, it may contain imperfections such as marks.

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.
