Irene, for the sheer viciousness.

Also Julian, for reasons well known to all you Christian whores. If only he hadn't died after less than two years on the throne in that needless campaign to conquer Ctesiphon, there's a chance – albeit a very small one – the Christian cancer could have been stamped out while there was still time.

Last one in the pool gets Vespasian.

Claudius. As in I Claudius.

Caligula and Nero.

Julian, for the reasons r2 mention re christianity (though if he had been successful a lot of farm animals would probably be extinct).

Nero, Caligula and Heliogabalus for entertainment vale.

Have also a soft spot for sulky Domitian.

Four hundred years of uncut salami?

Lucius Verus

Trebonianus Gallus





If I had to pick one probably Aemilianus because even his coin is flattering and who knows how accurate any of these are.

Of course he wasn't my favorite as a leader, only for a romp.

Aurelian unified the empire, so there's that.l

Sez who? Julian the Apostate rejected Christianity precisely because it proclaims itself as the only true religion. It got the fanatic ball rolling. Julian knew this attitude was dangerous, intolerant and unreasonable.

On the other hand he admitted that a reinvigorated paganism should help all people, not just their own tribes, like the practice of the 'impious Galileans' (Christians)

Commodus threw a hot fuck. But he was insane. It often goes together.

I watched Rise of a Dictator on PBS last night. Wikipedia has Pompey’s nude bronze, which is pretty unnerving.

r16 says history. Christians had to fight like mad to keep the Muslims from taking over. Since Paganism was so easily toppled over, if Islam were spread it would have captured the hearts of the land just as easily as Christianity. Get the right leaders onboard and everything would different. Maybe Muslims would have mellowed out, as Christians did in the West, but I'm not convinced.

Always makes me chuckle, thinking about Hadrian's blanket ban on circumcision. A true visionary who did not give a fuck. Genital mutilation for the purposes of tradition has no place in the modern world and there will come a time in the (distant) future when he will be lauded for this.

Elagabalus! Who “abandoned himself to the grossest pleasures with ungoverned fury".

R26, A lot Roman Emperors had sex with men. That was the norm actually, because there was no such thing as homosexuality in their thinking. But it wasn't as common for them to choose a male partner as their main life partner, even if they had to get married and have children, like Hadiran did. Hadrian's, lover, husband was Antinous. He wasn't just a sexual outlet, Hadrian was madly in love with him and mourned his death when he tragically drowned, by making him a god for people to worship, naming a city in Egypt after him and creating countless statues to him and his beauty. That is what I mean that he was one of us. He was gay in the sense that he was romantically attracted to other men.

He was gay, gay, gay!
