RPC History Week 26 6/4/15

Today I will be talking about Octavian Augustus Caesar establishment to the Roman Empire. Instead of using his powers over the people, he worked together with the Senate to improve Rome. He also reduce the army from 60 legions to only 28 to prevent coup.

He encouraged cultural developments especially literature and art. He also built many palaces, temples, and other buildings in Rome. He first set the standard of distributing free food, money, and entertainment for people when they are restless.

Augustus Caesar died in 14 BC and the Senate declared him as a Roman god.
