"I found Rome a city of brick and left it a city of marble."
Why the name "Octavian"?
In 49 BC, Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon with his military legion and initiated civil war with Rome. Four years later, he defeated the Roman government and set himself up as supreme dictator.
Although his military domination was absolute, Julius Caesar's brash methods were unpopular, resulting in his assassination. With no clear successor, and the constitutional government disrupted, Rome entered another civil war.
Enter Octavian. Through skillful military and political maneuvering, he defeated his rivals, establishing himself as the heir of Julius Caesar and the first official Roman Emperor. Taking on the name of his predecessor, he became known as Caesar Augustus.
Over his 40 year reign, Octavian (now Caesar Augustus) discovered Rome's shortcomings and implemented systems to address its needs. He emphasized efficiency, sustainability, and self-sufficiency in his reforms, establishing systems that could function without his direct oversight.
Some of Octavian's Reforms
Increased Roman borders and established a buffer zone between the Roman Empire and neighboring states, requiring less military upkeep
Rewrote outdated tax laws so individual Roman provinces were taxed consistently, rather than at the whim of provincial tax collectors
Reorganized the management and distribution of grain to the city of Rome, preventing mass famine and price hikes
Instituted official government services for Rome's imperial guard, standing army, police, and firefighters
Built a massive road network with an official postal system
Under the reign of Octavian, Rome flourished. Not only did he revive it to its former glory, but Octavian ushered Rome into its most glorious age yet.
