Storyboard Text

  • Incitatus
  • The story of Roman emperor Caligula's horse as consul
  • Rome: 38 C.E.
  • I think that I should make my beloved Incitatus the new consul
  • Caligula, sir, it appears that we are in need of a new consul. Do you have someone that you with to appoint?
  • The Senate
  • This is an outrage! Caligula has shown his insanity once again!
  • Emperor of Rome, Caligula, was known for his insanity. One act he was best known for was planning to appoint his horse as consul.
  • Incitatus's Stables
  • In this story, we will discuss what it would have been like to have a horse for a consul.
  • Caligula Announces New Consul
  • May I introduce Rome's new consul, Incitatus!
  • Despite the fact that many of the wild stories told about Caligula were made to make him look bad, historians believe that Caligula simply had a horse he was quite fond of, and intended to demean the members of the senate.
  • Caligula's Assasination
  • Historians believe that Caligula simply had a horse he was fond of. Legend says Incitatus lived in luxury.
  • Nothing is too good for Incitatus! He shall have the finest stable, with decor of gold and ivory! He shall eat the finest foods! I soon will have my most tallented architect build him a much finer home!
  • When Caligula announces another ridiculous act, the people are not happy. this would have likely resulted in the assassination of Caligula early.
  • Caligula would have likely gone through with making Incitatus a consul if it wasn't for his assassination four years after becoming emperor.
