Storyboard Text

  • Octavian declared himself Master of Rome not long after. This event led to Rome becoming an empire in 27BC.
  • Octavian decided to change his name to Augustus, meaning 'majestic', to be more of an emperor.
  • I, Octavian Thurinus, will now legally change my name to Augustus. I am now officially an emperor - nobody would take me seriously with the tltle 'king'. Signed, Emperor Augustus
  • The Roman Empire quickly became one of the biggest empires in history. Augustus established a standing army and a good network of roads for easy transport and trade.
  • I want iced tea imported from England, lifeguards imported from Spain, towels imported from Turkey, and turkey imported from Maine!
  • Power was restored to the laws, authority was restored to the courts, and dignity was restored to the senate.
  • In addition, agriculture was returned to the fields, and respect for religion was returned.
  • The pirate ships in the seas were replaced by merchant ships, and the competing savage tribes were brought into harmony with each other. This made Rome much more peaceful and better to live.
  • In addition, Augustus built and rebuilt much of Rome. He built the Senate house and the Temple of Apollo on the Palatine, and restored the Capitol and the Theatre of Pompey.
  • Even though both restorations were very expensive, he didn't have his name inscribed in either of the buildings, showing how selfless he was.
  • Put 'em over there, boys!
  • In addition, he doubled the water supply by bringing water from a new spring into the aqueducts, which he restored as well.
  • Gotta stay hydrated.
