Ancient Rome: The Private Life of the First Emperor Augustus

by Victor Miller



Non fiction, written in a narrative way - Ancient Rome: The Private Life of the First Emperor Augustus - (The Son of a God) Kindle Edition.

When we think of Augustus Caesar, the image of a young, handsome man spring to mind. The successor to Julius Caesar, we know that he became leader to the roman people at a very young age. And yet the man who was known by several names throughout his life was not a blood relative of Caesar. Although coming from fairly humble origins, this man propelled himself into the life of a fearsome warrior; respected politician and model roman citizen.

This book explores the life of Augustus and his rise to power, looking at the various influences and experiences throughout his life.

What were the omens that suggested he was more than just an ordinary child? How did he become heir to Julius Caesar’s fortune and power? Were all the decisions he made throughout his life politically motivated? How did his step-son Tiberius become his only heir, despite his struggle to ensure that he had a strong family line when he died? Augustus Caesar was a highly complex and intellectual individual who became one of the most powerful leaders of the time. The self-styled Father of Rome, he was truly destined towards divinity.

Available On Kindle, in Paperback & Free With Kindle Unlimited.

This isn’t a particularly long text book but it packs a punch nonetheless. Rather than just being a tedious march through the significant military achievements throughout Augustus’ life, this is a far more succinct look at the more personal aspects of his life.

It discusses many subjects such as the relationships he built; the intricate strategies he built to achieve his goals and his highly moralistic stance which was, undoubtedly due to his belief in his own divine origins as well as those he came into later on in life when he was adopted by Caesar.

If you are looking for something a little different from the standard books already on the market, then this is definitely worth a look.
