interesting facts about Roman Empire.

Sometimes as a treatment of infertility Roman doctors recommended drinking blood of the fallen gladiators.

After the emperor's death people let the eagle(symbol of the god Jupiter) fly , so it took emperor's soul to heaven.

In the Roman Empire, there were 80,000 kilometers of roads.

Hannibal has frightened Romans so much, that they have for centuries scared their children with his name.

In ancient Rome, if a baby had a crooked nose, it was considered as a sign of his leadership qualities.

Over the Colosseum you could push a large sun visor that protected the observers from the sun on hot days.

The Colosseum had been built in 12 years. For all the 70,000 spectators could to get out took just three minutes.

Nice topic Kat. I find all of these facts very interesting. I wonder why the Roman doctors suggested drinking the blood of the fallen gladiators. Is that a lot of road compared to what Rome has now or a little or is it about the same? The legend of Hannibal still lives on and there are so many movies and series about him. Why would a crooked nose lead to leadership?

Nice topic, the Roman Empire is a very diverse topic, and these "fun facts" as you call them don't include more 1/3 of the facts of Rome. The Roman Empire is the first empire ever and to be honest one of my favorite. I can't believe your fun facts they're so interesting.
