History RE-Summarized: The Age of Augustus
Many Romans had conquered the Republic, but nobody could keep it, until Augustus. In the half century after the assassination of Caesar, his adoptive son would fundamentally transform the Roman state: expanding it, reforming it, and bringing it under the control of one man. The Age of Augustus found Rome a Republic and left it an Empire.
This video is a Remastered, Definitive Edition of three previous videos from this channel - History Summarized: "Augustus Versus The Assassins", "Augustus Versus Antony", and "How Augustus Made An Empire".
