Rome was a vast empire that seemed to be unlimited in power and was seen as the world's greatest empire during 27 BC till about 476 AD. But this great nation couldn't grow by itself it had to have a leader someone that would help it rise and those people were the Roman Emperors. The Romans considered the office of emperor to be distinct to that of a king. Emperors claimed not to be monarchs and sometimes ruled with a partner or separated the nation and had someone watch over their parts. Every country has it’s ruler maybe you don’t think that Roman Emperors are strong or important but not all countries are successful, big and feared by others. Also Rome started as a small city, for people to be able to turn it into an enormous and famous empire which we still learn from today about 1500 years after it’s fall they had to have a great mind and great powers.
Emperors basically had sculptures made of their heads and had coins made in their honor like nowadays other countries do with their presidents and their silver coins. The objects in this exhibition will tell you about the person who introduced emperorship to Rome without knowing it, about the person who was officially named the first emperor and the people who made Rome a better place.
