Done and done!


Thank you so much Barbatus! I did try to resize the avatar before adding it, but it had to be from a website address and I had no idea as to how to resize it without downloading it.

I'm sure Draco is happy now that my avatar is not dominating the page instead of his :lol:

Here´s my top three:

1. Augustus

2. Marcus Aurelius

3. Galba


Augustus has always been my favourite as he is one of the statemen and politicians in world history. Aurelius´ sense of duty and his Meditations are dear also. But Galba? "omnium consensu capax imperii nisi imperasset"

Nobody´s ever thought that I could govern an empire... :D

I´m so proud of myself, my emperor´s test results shows that I am enters the most detached and the ones that they had changed the course of the history for its actions and influence.
Two of them had initiated a new age and two are enters "the Antoninus" in the apogee of the Roman Empire.
Well, it was too Tiberius, but no all are perfect.......kkkkkkkkk

1. MARCUS AURELIUS (THE HIGH POINT, GENIUS)
2. TIBERIUS (CRUEL, DEPRAVED, BUT VERY GOOD GENERAL THE BEST OF YOUR AGE)
3. TRAIANUS (THE HIGH POINT, MILITARIST, IT CONQUERED DACIA, ASSYRIA, CTESIFON, MESOPOTAMIA, ETC)
4. CONSTANTINUS (FOUNDER OF THE AGE CREST)
5. AUGUSTUS (FOUNDER OF THE AGE OF THE EMPERORS)

please, they pardon me if I seemed proud excessively,

Salvete Invicte et Superbe,

though I enjoy reading your posts I would like to ask you to stop posting in captial letters only.

Also, you have the ability to edit your own posts, so if you've made a typo, you can go back and edit it. There's no need to make another post.

Valete!

Salvete!
Everyone's got nice and clean emperors :)
Here're my results:

#1: Titus (he's clean and good at least)
#2: Nero (terrible. He's got a bad name)
#3: Caligula (as bad as Nero. Muahaha.)

Maybe that's me, I'm that mad sort of guy. ^.^
By the way, I'm new around here, and I won't mind being addressed either by my cognomen Massiensis or cognomen 2 (no such actual thing - I made this up myself) Pavelios. I hope to learn more about Classical culture from all of you!

Valete,

Salve Marvine,

Yes, Honorius was bad, probably one of the worst emperors. He didn't have a clue, so it seems.

Welcome to SVR by the way :).

Salvete Marvine et Draco,

As I understood it, Honorious wasn't that bad. He was in an almost impossible situation - by his day, the western Empire was almost inevitably going to fall, it was just a matter of when. And through Constantius he did manage to re-assert control over the Burgundians and Visigoths, so it's not like he just lay down and took the punishment that was being meted out...

Then again, my knowledge of that period isn't brilliant, so feel free to correct me. :)

Salve Curio,

It could be that my vision is clouded by Gibbons's strong dislike of him, and perhaps you are right that the fall had become inevitable, but still, during his long reign one would think he'd at least come up with a plan rather than taking ad hoc measures.

Vale bene,

I do not feel that the exam is accurate, how can you actually answer those questions and retain an accurate answer? It asks, "Are you anything but a Christian." Well, my answer is no, but I assume that it will take my answer to mean that I am a Christian. Am I wrong? I am against Christianity, but I am against other religions as well.

As you can see from my avatar, I'm a Marcus Aurelius fan, and a stoic at heart, but he wasn't even listed in my top 25. Quor?

Well, it's just a game of course. 25 questions won't tell you much about 24 people, I suppose.
