I would like to be Marcus Aurelius. I want to be Marcus Aurelius because he helped people with there life problems. He lowered taxes, sold his fine exspinsive jewles, and schools and more.
I could see how you would want to be him, but I still like Augustus Caesar better. They both did great things by helping the people of Rome.
Sean I also like Augustus Caesar but Marcus Aurelius was also super talented at being Emperor. I like both.
I agree that being Augustus would be great because he started the Pax Ramona, however he was the first emperor of a long Roman Republic. A whole bunch of people probably would not have liked that idea it it may not have ended well in that sense. I also think that because no one had done it before, a lot could go wrong for there were no mistakes made that you could learn from before hand.
I would want to be Augustus Caesar too.He becomes the first emperor and could of made the roles for beginning an emperor.
I agree with you Triston about how you would want to be emperor Marcus Aurelius. He did help Rome's economy by giving more to the poor. Although, I also think that the wealthy would complain about the way he organized the city, so they may decide to kill him. Though, I understand why you would want to be Marcus Aurelius if you were to be an emperor of Rome, and so would I.
I completely agree with you Triston. If I was an emperor I would not be selfish or greedy like some of the others I would actually help me community and everyone in it.
I would want to be Augustus Caesar because he reigned for a long time. He was a good emperor by creating the fire brigade.
I agree but I think you could use some more things than the fire brecade
I do agree with you Sean they both did do great things but for my understanding making fire bridge did help him but things could of went wrong. He did do things like Marcus witch is help his community to get better and stronger also health-er.So me and you get each other like what you said.
I would want to be Nerva, because he was the first of the five good emperors of Rome. He gained popularity by reducing punishments and i would like to be someone who did that and went in history loved by most if not all.
That is a good choice Nathan. I would agree with you, because he seems to be well respected.
I agree with Nathan because Nerva was a really good Emperor and was very popular.
Augustus also began Pax Romana.
If I could be ANY emperor, I would be Augustus. I would because he is the adoptive son of ceasor. Sure, he watched father die BUT that just hardened his resolve. I think as first emperor, I would get to make up the rules of being emperor. Plus I would be able to Intimidate ANYONE I choose as i am the FIRST emperor of rome.
I agree, you have good thought on this and maybe I might change mine but I still would like to be Nerva. :) good thought
That is a very good reason to be Augustus. If I were him, I would make up rules that make me very powerful. Although, maybe he had some conditions on making the rules, or maybe someone else made them so, that they are fair.
I definitely agree it is actually kind of what I am saying.
I agrey with alexander on tat because agustus is the udopted son of ceacer and cesor was a good empere
I would like to be Claudius if I had to choose one. I would choose him because he restored all of the art that was stolen. He also made improvements to Romes laws so he must of been wealthy and respected. I would love that feeling so I choose Claudius.
If I could be any emperor that we discussed I would be Augustus. He centralized the government, started a fire brigade and police force, but best of all he began the Pax Romana. He fixed Rome so if I could be an emperor I would be him.
I would want to be Augustus, because he had a lot of power, but if I was him I would not want to start any wars with anybody from anywhere. I would not want to start any wars, because I would want everybody and myself to be safe and not get hurt.
Honestly, I wouldn't want to be any emperor because I don't think I would do much good to Rome with that much power in my hands. If I HAD to be one, I would like to be Diocletian, because I would have half of the Roman empire to rule rather than a plethora of people to control.
You are smart in the leaving the power to someone else because then you couldn't have the possibility of being a bad emperor. Also the idea of being diocletian because then you couldn't wreck the whole empire.
I agree Amy he really did a lot because he split Rome so he would not have to worry about everything and he did many smart things like as i said splitting Rome and he rose in the Roman army and achieved high position.
I would want to be Augustus because for one he was the first emperor.He was in the 2nd triumvirate with mark Antony,Octavian(Augustus),and Marcus Lepidus.He was also was the sole ruler of Rome
I totally agree with you Jada. Since he was the first emperor and a lot of people liked him. and like you said he was the sole ruler of Rome.
I would be Augustus because he is a good emperor and everybody likes him. Being the emperor that lead to 200 years of prosperity and wealth he must be a likable guy. Since everyone likes him that lowers his chances of being assassinated.
the empor i would want to be is the one who reterond art work from the museum that the emperor stole. I want to be him because he was a good emporo. but if i was him i would try and stop the emporer from being such rood and shoe him how to be a good empor. like insted of steling art work why not hire someone to do it for you.
I would want to be Augustus because he was the first emperor. Also almost everyone liked him. He was good at being emperor he helped out Rome a lot too.
If I had the chance to be an emperor, I would want to be Marcus Aurelius for all of the great deeds that he did to improve the economy and the Empire of Rome. One reason I would want to be this absolutely significant emperor is because of the way he lowered taxes and helped the poor. He also sponsored legal reforms that made criminal laws less harsh and while I'm on this topic, he also promoted kinder treatment of slaves from their masters, which helped the poor a lot more because they usually were not earning as much of the respect that they deserved from their masters. Also, Marcus believed that being an emperor was not about political responsibilities, he thought that emperors were in the hands of a MORAL responsibility. One last thing I believe would be appropriate to mention is that Marcus Aurelius thought that living a moral life would lead to peace and justice in Rome. I rest my case to which why I would love to be Marcus Aurelius if I ever COULD BE ( I'm not sure what our future holds, though I can't wait to find out) emperor.
I agree with you Noemi. He did do many good deeds. Like helping the poor and lowering taxes.
I do agree with that to, he does do good deeds, but Communes much great power then him.
Good job though
I would be Marcus Cocceius Nerva because he was the first of the five good emperors he started it all he was born into a wealthy lawyer his family was holding high office he was suppressing the conspiracy of Piso so he has high power he has done many things he got power but was accused of treason but he overcame that so that's why i would be him.
I would like to be Marcus Aurelius for everything he did. He thought it was more important to have moral responsibilities than political responsibilities. Also he lowered taxes and helped the poor. Lastly he gave nicer treatment that slaves get from their masters.
Commodes, because he had great power of ruling. Many feared when he gets to the throne. Many rich would like him and he was rich.
i would be diocletion because he had smart ideas to divide all the western and eastern parts.
I would be Nerva because he was one of the five good Emperors and. He also made the punishments less hurtful.One more reason is because he was respecteda lot.
Nero bbecause I would like to see how the people reacted. Also it might be cool to be him. Like he has total control and tons os money so it could only get bad when they killed me.
