Priest of Jupiter 👀

This short listen about the ruler of the Roman Empire is an interesting one. When he was thirteen years old he was appointed priest of Jupiter. He was married so many times, it is hard to keep count. While he is very much remembered as an important historical figure, it is very clear that he was SELF important, as well.
