Augustus Caesar or Octavian as he was known as a young man - was the founder of the great Roman Empire. Nominated by his great-uncle Julius Caesar as his heir, he nevertheless had to struggle for supremacy over his uncle's murderers before he became sole ruler of the Roman world, after the defeat of Antony. Dr Earl discusses Octavian's background and his family history, and describes the society in which he lived, in an attempt to evaluate the emperor's character and assess the influences which affected him most.
