Post  Omeara on Thu Apr 16, 2015 10:12 am

Augustus maintained a standing army of 28 legions, it was 151,000 men. He also encouraged a new religion for the emperors. Augustus died in 14 AD after ruling Rome for 45 years. Because of his death, Augustus as declared a god by the senate. He created a new order while maintaining traditional values. By the time of his death, the Roman republic was only a memory. T the end the emperors started to rule now.

Great work Volney!! Augustus Caesar also rebuilt temples and built new ones to honor the roman gods. he also encouraged the development of a new religious cult dedicated to the emperor. This happened before his death but by the time of his death the Roman Republic was only a memory. GREAT WORK VOLNEY!!!

What you wrote Volney is really good, because mention many important facts of what Augustus Caesar did before his death. Something I didn't knew was how he was declared to be a God of what he did for his country. Something really sad is that after he died what he had done was lost and just became as the only memory of the republic. Still what you wrote him was really informative. Very Happy
