Rate this:
In the first major account of the emperor in nearly a century, Anthony Everitt presents a biography of the man whom he calls arguably "the most successful of Rome's rulers". Born in A.D. 76, Hadrian lived through and ruled during a tempestuous era, a time when the Colosseum was opened to the public and Pompeii was buried under a mountain of lava and ash. Everitt vividly recounts his thrilling life, in which the emperor brought a century of disorder and costly warfare to a peaceful conclusion while demonstrating how a monarchy can be compatible with good governance. Hadrian was brave and astute as well as an accomplished huntsman, poet, and student of philosophy.
