You scored as Marcus Aurelius, Your attention to duty even when the going gets rough has earned you the identity of Marcus Aurelius. A philosopher-emperor, he used Stoic musings to steel his resolve against a hard lot in life. You know few years of peace, and believe the only final answer to the empire's problems is a complete conquest of Europe. Despite this, you are probably one of the most human and thoughtful emperors in the history of mankind. Hail Caesar!

"probably one of the most human and thoughtful emperors in the history of mankind"...unless you were a Christian, that is!

You scored as Augustus,You are Augustus! First emperor of the Romans and one of the greatest statesmen in the ancient world. You brilliantly eased the old Republic into the Principate and set the path for an empire that would last for centuries and form the underpinnings for all western civilization. Hail Caesar!

I was rather hoping for Claudius, myself.

Jeremy, I am really relieved that you weren't Caligula.

I don't think Marcus Aurelius was all that oppressive to Christians. There was the legal allowance of punishment for being Christian, but it was very rarely instituted and usually only at the initiative of local government. He had no antipathy to Christians himself. His views are actually closer to Christian thought than probably any other Roman emperor besides the ones who were actually Christian (and even some of them I'd wonder about). New Testament ethics is closer to Stoicism than to any other ancient school of thought.

I may not be Caligula, but Nero and Trajan did come up in the middle of the pack, and that can't be good. It's nice to see Domitian and Commodus so low.
