#Augustus

MOST RECENT

On this day, 2081 years ago, on September 23, 63 BC, the first #emperor of the #RomanEmpire - #Augustus - was born.
Augustus entered political life at the age of 19, when he was elected consul. With the founding of the Roman Empire, which marked the end of the #RomanRepublic, he brought an end to the lengthy civil wars that had wreaked havoc within Rome, which in turn marked the birth of the era known as the #PaxRomana (Roman Peace). It lasted nearly two centuries, propelling the empire to previously unfathomable economic prosperity. Not surprisingly, this was achieved through tax reform, incentives for free trade, and a restructuring of the state's wasteful administration.
Additionally, it is interesting to note that Augustus was the nephew of #JuliusCaesar.

ON THIS DAY IN 63 BC: AUGUSTUS IS BORN

Caesar Augustus was born on 23 September 63 BC as Gaius Octavius Thurinus. Augustus was born into a wealthy political family, and was the grandnephew of Julius Caesar himself. In the wake of his uncle Julius’ assassination, Augustus ultimately seized power to become Rome’s first emperor. However, he rejected such titles, instead calling himself “Princeps Civitatis” (First Citizen of the State). During his reign, Augustus greatly expanded the empire, annexing Egypt, Dalmatia, Pannonia, Noricum, and Raetia, expanding possessions in Africa, and completing the conquest of Hispania. The Emperor brought major domestic reforms as well, including taxation and infrastructure. The major project of the Roman Roads began under Caesar Augustus. The first emperor died in AD 14 at the age of 75. Augustus' reign laid the foundations of a regime that lasted, in one form or another, for nearly fifteen hundred years through the ultimate decline of the Western Roman Empire and until the Fall of Constantinople in 1453. The Republic was no more.

So today, is my favorite roman emperor's birthday! Happy birthday Augustus! (63 B.C-14 A.D)

I made something my first aesthetic in a loooong time sorry if it’s bad I’m not very good at this #octavian #augustus #markantony #romeaesthetic #romanaesthetic

Did you know? In 8 B.C. Augustus had the Roman month of Sextilius renamed after himself—as his great-uncle and predecessor Julius Caesar had done with July. August was the month of several of the emperor's greatest victories, including the defeat and suicide of Antony and Cleopatra. He did not increase the month's length, which had been 31 days since the establishment of the Julian calendar in 45 B.C.
