 "Very few of the Roman emperors died a natural death. The insane Caligula was murdered after leaving the theatre
  Caracalla while he was relieving himself. Caesar was stabbed twenty-three times and Ortho was dragged into the Tiber with a flesh-hook. However great an emperor's power, danger was ever present." "This book looks at each of the Roman emperors from Julius Caesar in 44 BC to Romulus Augustulus in AD 476, illuminating not only the manner of their deaths but what their final days tell us about their lives. We also hear how the most powerful position in the history of the Western world held a permanent appeal, despite its perils, with eager candidates constantly coming forward to seize the throne." "Emperors Don't Die in Bed provides a clear history of the imperial succession as well as a compelling depiction of the intrigue and drama of Roman imperial politics."--BOOK JACKET.
