Good Emperors

The Good Emperors

Following the Julian emperors, a series of generals backed by the Roman Army ruled Rome for 28 years. Tired of violent or ineffective leaders, the Roman Senate decided to take action. The Senate began to put forward their own candidates for emperor. These emperors tended to be fair, reasonable, and effective. They led Rome forward to a golden age, and expanded the borders of the Roman Empire to the largest that they had ever been. For these reasons, they were referred to as the good emperors.
