Synopsis: Dynasty continues where Rubicon ended: with the murder of Julius Caesar. This is the period of the first and perhaps greatest Roman emperors-from the rise of Augustus to the death of Nero. Holland's expansive history features five wonderfully vivid (and in three cases, thoroughly depraved) emperors-Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, and Nero-along with numerous fascinating secondary characters. Intrigue, murder, naked ambition, treachery, greed, gluttony, lust, incest, pageantry, and decadence-the tale of these five Caesars continues to cast a mesmerizing spell across the millennia.
