Hirdetés

Imperator Caesar Augustus divi filius, általánosan elterjedt néven Augustus császár, születési nevén Caius Octavius, később Caius Iulius Caesar a Római Birodalom első császára , a római történelem egyik legfontosabb alakja volt. Az Octavianus nevet maga soha nem használta, bár örökbefogadása után a régi szokás szerint neve ez lett volna: Caius Iulius Caesar Octavianus.

Karrierje Caius Iulius Caesar fogadott fiaként, a dictator híveinek támogatását elnyerve indult, ám kiváló államférfiként jelentős mértékben különböző politikát folytatott. Az idő őt igazolta: nemcsak egyszemélyi uralma stabilizálódott évtizedekre, hanem a császárság rendszere is, melynek politikai, államigazgatási, katonai és társadalmi alapjait egyaránt ő vetette meg.
