We have surely already been here ...

Even if the OP is on our "favourite" (not necessarily the best), must still agree with MP: Caius Octavius, aka Caius Julius Caesar ("Octavianus"), aka Augustus.

Think i would have to go for Augustus Caesar too !!
Marcus Aurelius
Trajan
Vespasian
I have always had a soft spot for Tiberius, think history and Tacitus have given him a bad press!!

I'm inclined to say the same of at least three others, Nero, Domitian, and Caracalla.

First one of course: Octavianus Augustus all the way.



Btw: Caesar was not emperor.
