So, hello there!

Posted June 17th, 2018 at 02:04 PM by JulioClaudian Historian

Well this should be my very first blog, but I will first introduce myself as person very interested in history, especially in ancient Rome. I like to draw dinos and famous people from history, and yes you can request things you want me to draw! And people that are interested in JulioClaudian dynasty and that want to discuss about roman emperors can be my friends for sure!!!




P. S sorry for my bad english grammar!

    Welcome!

    My favorite dynasty has to be the Severan dynasty of the third century. Who's your favorite Roman emperor(s)?

    Definitely Hadrian.

    Also I know they weren't exactly "emperors" but I find the Severan Julias (Domna, Maesa, Mamaea, Soaemias) are my favorite figures in Roman history!

    I, Claudius? Unfortunately I never heard of it, but since you recommend it, and since it stars John Hurt, I'll be sure to check it!

    While we're on the subject isn't your avatar a screenshot from the series?

    I love Gladiator! I watched it a lot of times. Russell Crowee's performance in the movie is amazing.

    But the honor of my favorite movie around ancient Rome has to go to 1963's Cleopatra. Yes, I know, the movie mainly revolves around ancient Egypt but it portrays a very significant period of Roman history which is the annexation of Egypt and asides from the titular character has depictions of Caesar, Augustus, and Mark Antony.

    Some historical inaccuracies aside, I really love the movie. Did you know it nearly bankrupted 20th century fox?

    Yes I read about that. I also think movie Cleopatra is amazing, even if they were near to bankrupt 20th century fox. Hey for good movie you must to risk! You know, I really love movies from 20th century about Roman empire.Some scenes and performances just wakes my emotions up!

    Also, about performances, there are a lot of actors that acted Caligula. And I dont know who acted the best this crazy emperor. For me top 3 actors would be : Malcolm Mcdowell ( he acted in movie Caligula ), John Hurt and Ralph Bates ( he acted in mini series The Caesars )
