Summary

Rome, AD 37. The emperor is dying. No-one knows how long he has left. The power struggle has begun. 

When the ailing Tiberius thrusts Caligula's family into the imperial succession in a bid to restore order, he will change the fate of the empire and create one of history's most infamous tyrants, Caligula. 

But was Caligula really a monster? 

Forget everything you think you know. Let Livilla, Caligula's youngest sister and confidante, tell you what really happened. How her quiet, caring brother became the most powerful man on earth. 

And how, with lies, murder and betrayal, Rome was changed forever....

An enjoyable read of a brilliantly written book

This story was excellently told, with poise and style. The description flows and the era is brought beautifully to life.

The narrator does a fine job of bringing the people and places to life in a great read.

Simply brilliant

I have long been a fan of Simons work, and he continues to write great works like this. Caligula provides a stunning alternative view of the young emperor in a tale of deceit, backstabbing and even Plotting Praetorians!
