Marcus Aurelius, who assumed power in 161AD and reigned until 180 AD, was the fifth of the “Adoptive Emperors” the Golden Age of the Empire under the emperor Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian, Antonius Pius, and himself. Unfortunately, Marcus Aurelius broke the tradition of adopting the best man for the job, and passed the Empire on to his own son; the dynasty soon came to an end. Marcus rulled during difficult times; famine and plaque hurt Rome within, and barbarians were pushing back the boarders from without. He seems to have been a good and conscientious ruler who was magnanimous towards his enemies. He banned informers, stamped down hard corruption, and freed slaves at every opportunity. Although he tolareted the circus, he ordered gladiators to fight with blunted points. Marcus Aurelius is best known as the philosopher-emperor who wrote down his “meditations” in Greek; they are among the best examples of Stoic philosophy which we have. Plato’s judgment was always on his lips, that states flourished if philosophers ruled or rulers that states flourished if philosophers ruled or rulers were philosophers. It is this quality of Marcus’ character which has made him a unique figure in Roman history, since he was first emperor whose life was molded by, and devoted to, philosophy.
