    Definetly Augustus (Octavian) Caesar. He gave the Romans Pax Romana – Roman Peace. He was also the richest man in Rome but he lived a modest and simple lifestyle, therefore he was loved by the rich and the poor.

    I agree that Augustus was a remarkable emperor, but I would say that Julius Caesar was the most influential as he was the man who destroy the Republic when he crossed the Rubicon (“alea jacta est”) marking the beggining of the Empire.

      Julius Caesar wasn’t an emperor though, Octavian was the first to declare himself Principate and Imperator.
