Alright since ya asked my lovely lamia .. But where is Julius Caesar he was best Emperor ( only because I got to play in my ninth grade drama class presentation of Julius Caesar )


Julius Caesar was never emperor. He was just a consul that consolidated quite a bit of power and became dictator. When he was assassinated, his adopted heir went on to establish Rome as an Empire. Under Julius and before, though, it was a Republic.


I was actually the understudy, then the main got a lung infection and I became the star. I was quite well recieved my charming snake girl.

As for you schmooples ya just arguing semantics now. So technically he never called himself Emperor but the birth of the Empire is directly tied to his rule as dictator. I mean total power is enough in my books to be whatever ya want to be ya know.

Besides he had a awesome chicken salad named after him.

Actually, no, there is a major difference. The position of dictator was an official position in Roman government that the senate could permit the consuls to select. Basically, this just allowed a consul to avoid legal consequences to their official actions and allowed them to bypass the term limit, which is how Julius was able to have so many consecutive terms as consul.

There was no position of emperor in the Roman republic.

I don't think that Nero was all that bad... A little crazy perhaps but not all bad...

Do you have any idea how many dictators there were before Julius Caesar? It has nothing to do with the later empire - only Julius Caesar's death can be viewed as a link. And dead men can't be emperor after the fact.

Rome had to create an entirely new constitution when it became an empire, just as it did when it went from being a monarchy to a republic. To say you had an emperor in the republic is as silly as saying you had a consul or dictator in the kingdom.
