List of Emperors

(Table VI)

In the following list the titles of Imperator, Caesar and Augustus are generally omitted since virtually all emperors bore them; the names they are usually known by are capitalized. All dates, except the first three, are AD; many, especially for the later emperors, are only approximate.

The column headed ‘Date of Death’ includes emperors who ceased the rule before their deaths: Macrinus (deposed), Valerian (captured by the Persians), Tetricus (abdicated), Diocletian (abdicated) and Romulus (deposed). These are marked with an asterisk. Omitted are ‘emperors’ who reigned only briefly as sons of their fathers and not independently.
