When we think of Augustus Caesar, the image of a young, handsome man spring to mind. The successor to Julius Caesar, we know that he became leader to the roman people at a very young age. And yet the man who was known by several names throughout his life was not a blood relative of Caesar. Although coming from fairly humble origins, this man propelled himself into the life of a fearsome warrior; respected politician and model roman citizen.

This book explores the life of Augustus and his rise to power, looking at the various influences and experiences throughout his life.

What were the omens that suggested he was more than just an ordinary child? How did he become heir to Julius Caesar’s fortune and power? Were all the decisions he made throughout his life politically motivated? How did his step-son Tiberius become his only heir, despite his struggle to ensure that he had a strong family line when he died? Augustus Caesar was a highly complex and intellectual individual who became one of the most powerful leaders of the time. The self-styled Father of Rome, he was truly destined towards divinity.
