19th August 2014 marks the bi-millennial anniversary of the death of the first Roman emperor, Augustus. Augustus is one of the few historical individuals who can genuinely be said to have changed the world around him. He forged a system of rule by emperor out of political chaos, consolidated Roman control over an empire spanning three continents, and put the military and administrative structures in place to sustain it for almost five centuries. This makes him one of the major architects of the modern world, and his legacy has been felt ever since in political thinking from John of Salisbury to Jonathan Swift; political image-making from the Holy Roman Emperors to Mussolini; art, architecture, literature, film and television.
