Emperor Augustus bust
An educated and clever ruler with a view of the people. Proud adoptive son of Caesar, fascinating personality, achieved great prestige in the Roman Empire at the age of 18.
Augustus transformed the Roman Empire into a peaceful monarchy. He was neither emperor nor did he possess the title of king. However, this cleverly thought-out move did not harm his high rank in the least. Quite the opposite, because he became even more popular.

It paved the way for his success and made him appear as a sympathetic and philanthropic ruler. When the terrible civil war came to an abrupt end and the population of Rome had to struggle with famines and other catastrophes, the turning point came. The fierce battles were successfully defeated by Augustus' troops and ultimately led to the desired victory. Ruler Augustus was said to have a lot of humour and an extraordinary talent for languages.
It is said that his eyes possessed a radiant energy and fascinated the people. Forbidden dice games and vicious celebrations were his very personal passions, to which he indulged extensively. The time came when Augustus retired from his political office and transferred power to his son Tiberius.
