Ruler Hadrian Carries The World To Rome

The emperor Hadrian was well known for building monuments across the Roman Empire, a territory that had reached its widest extent when his reign began in A.D. 117. Hadrian’s Wall in Britain “and a host of other monuments, attest to his taste, activity, and power,” French romantic writer Chateaubriand noted in 1803 on a visit to the emperor’s villa at Tivoli near Rome. Hadrian’s Villa’s size, opulence, and design touches from the far-flung corners of the empire are “entirely becoming for a man who once possessed the world.” 온라인카지노

Although more carefully preserved since Chateaubriand wandered through its crumbling ruins (it’s been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1999), Hadrian’s Villa astounds visitors with its sheer size. Starting around A.D. 125, he oversaw the creation of 31 structures and extensive gardens, spread across a terrain of some seven square miles.Behind the Beard 온라인카지노

The third of the five “Good Emperors,” Hadrian’s reign (117-138) came at the zenith of Roman power. The first Roman emperor to wear a full beard, Hadrian’s association of facial hair with majesty set a fashion trend that has influenced the look of kingship ever since.신규사이트
