Augustus
Following the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44BC, his adoptive son Octavian's political ambition came to the fore. Taking the name Augustus, he ended a century of civil war and became sole ruler, thereby establishing the Julio-Claudian dynasty and empire.

Images of Augustus filled his empire and continued to inspire artists for centuries after his death.
