CHW 3M: Emperors on Trial

Tomorrow, we will put Rome’s greatest (and most notorious) emperors on trial. We will evaluate these emperors by using the following questions:

  • Was this emperor great? (remember our discussion of greatness)
  • What impact did this emperor have on Rome?
  • To what extent did this Emperor strengthen/weaken the Empire?

Your choices are:

  • Caligula
  • Claudius
  • Nero
  • Vespasian
  • Domitian
  • Hadrian
  • Commodus
  • Diocletian

Your goal today is to find out everything about this emperor. Please remember that, at this point, you don’t know if you are going to argue for the defense

or the prosecution; thus, it is important for you to have as much evidence as you can for both sides.
