The story of how Augustus rose from an obscure teenager to become Rome?s first and greatest emperor.Caesar Augustus schemed and fought his way to absolute power. He became Rome?s first emperor and ruled for forty-four years before dying peacefully in his bed. The system he created would endure for centuries.Yet, despite his exceptional success, he is a difficult man to pin down, and far less well-known than his great-uncle, Julius Caesar. His story is not always edifying: he murdered his opponents, exiled his daughter when she failed to conform and freely made and broke alliances as he climbed ever higher. However, the peace and stability he fostered were real, and under his rule the empire prospered. Adrian Goldsworthy examines the ancient sources to understand the man and his times.
