The mighty Roman Empire held the ancient world in awe and presided over unprecedented advances in civilization which still hold sway over our language, architecture and municipal organisation today.
A notably autocratic regime, the succession of colourful personalities that headed one of the world's most powerful empires, makes for riveting listening.
From the magnetic but divisive figure of Caesar via the capricious, vengeful Nero to the belligerent, martially-skilful Constantine, the careers of these Roman rulers were thrillingly eventful. "Classics" scholar and writer Hugh Griffith introduces the rulers and the principal events associated with them in Naxos AudioBooks' successful "Junior Classics" series.
