Summary
Author and historian Tom Holland returns to his roots in Roman history and the audience he cultivated with Rubicon--his masterful, witty, brilliantly researched popular history of perhaps the greatest civilization ever--with Dynasty. Dynasty continues Rubicon's story, opening where that book ended: with the murder of Julius Caesar. This is the period of the great Roman Emperors, the first Roman Emperors, and, astonishingly, no writer has tackled such an obvious commercial history recently--and it's a colorful story, running from the rise of Augustus through to the death of Nero. Holland's expansive history also has shades of I Claudius, with five wonderfully colorful (and in three cases, thoroughly depraved) Emperors--Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, and Nero--featured along such fascinating secondary characters as Livia, Agrippina, and Germanicus. Intrigue, murder, naked ambition and treachery, greed, gluttony, lust, incest, pageantry, decadence--what's not to like?
Summary
The follow-up to Rubicon picks up with the murder of Julius Caesar and vividly depicts the intrigue, murder, ambition and treachery of Emperors Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius and Nero
