Roman Emperors Throughout history

Without a shade of doubt, Roman history has always managed to fascinate us. The Roman empire derives its origin from the Roman Republic after its ascent to the dominant power in Europe. Thus, Augustus, who is universally accepted as being the first name to figure in the Roman emperors list, was careful to always maintain the facade of republican rule and so did not take up any specific title to mark his rule, which began in 27 B.C. Given below is a Roman emperors list starting with Augustus up until Justin II.

This was a holy Roman emperors list. Even though Romulus Augustus is considered to have been the last Roman emperor, he was actually a usurper and so is not included in the Roman emperors list. The decline of the Roman empire occurred due to growing enemies and increasing amount of treachery within the empire. However, no one can deny the various ancient Roman achievements like their art, literature and architecture were landmark achievements at that time. However, whatever may have led to the downfall of the Roman empire, Roman rulers achievements far outnumber those of any other dynasty that ever ruled the world.
