It is difficult to summarise even a simple list of “famous romans”. Clearly a thousand years of history just in ancient times were sufficient to yield many names. To make things easier for myself I have limited the list of famous romans to those which popped off the top of my head as the ones most likely to be famous. If you think of others which have a right to be in the list and which rightfully deserve the word “famous” as well as being regarded as “romans” please let me know.
So here it is a list of famous Romans and links to source information about why they are famous…
Romulus and Remus
Scaevola & Cincinnatus
The Gracchi brothers
Julius Caesar & Mark Anthony
Emperors: Octavian – Augustus | Nero | Hadrian |
Writers such as Virgil and Horace
