In her international bestseller SPQR, Mary Beard told the thousand-year story of ancient Rome. Now, in Emperor of Rome, she shines a spotlight on the emperors who ruled the Roman empire, from Julius Caesar to Alexander Severus.

In lieu of the typical chronological account of Roman rulers, in Emperor of Rome Beard tracks down the emperor at home, at the races, on his travels, even on his way to heaven. She introduces his wives and lovers, rivals and slaves, court jesters and soldiers, and the ordinary people who pressed begging letters into his hands, offering an account of Roman history as it has never been presented before.

Beard is the author of the bestsellers The Fires of Vesuvius and Women and Power. She represents a new era for the study of Antiquity, one that is free of airs and full of curiosity, critique, and inquiry. A popular blogger and television personality, she is a regular contributor to the New York Review of Books.
