Think the guy you may be thinking of from Nelson's time was Cochrane - there was also Coddrington - people forget the wealth of talent the RN had in its captains during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars.
Yes mate that's the one Cochrane,is he the one that fought for Chile or one of the South American counties at some point..not up on naval history.

No, you miss my point on the history. When I was at school as a pupil it was somewhat stagnant. Now it is very much up-to-date - certainly in the UK, there is much taught about the twentieth century, particularly the totalitarian regimes.
I imagine it is the same here now - more information taught about more recent history. That can be just as useful as history from the beginning. I just started the book "the Twelve Caesars". Pretty interesting stuff - didn't realize there 12.

" keeping the pecker up"?! You realize that has a totally different meaning here in the states?! LOL!

I think they just took the name Caesar for Dictator of Rome and Empire rather than the Julian dynasty..

I like these because when mowing the lawn, or for anyone who works outdoors for a living, all you do is wet it, and you will get approx 6 hours of cool time. When you feel that heat soar, you will be glad you have at least one of these. Two of them is also great. 6 hours on one and 6 on the other. Of course they are reusable.

It's an idea, plus it look like they were all related.

Way more than twelve. From Augustus (who was technically the first emperor - not Julius Caesar as some assume) until the empire divided into east and west in 395 AD, there were 147 emperors.(deduct 9 from that figure if you knock out rebel emperors who tried to set up rival power bases). Once it divided into two (the beginning of the end so to speak) the figures were 23 and 94 for the two different empires, one based in Rome, the other in Byzantium (Istambul today) which later became the Ottoman Empire.

Suetonius (author of the 12 Caesars) is something of a gossip, so do take what he writes with a pinch of salt: he loved the salacious tales of his past rulers, not necessarily always substantiated from other sources - but both Nero and Gaius Caligula were pretty evil duds, and Tiberius was nothing but an old perv!

True for the early Caesars, not so later on. Remember. Suetonius is only scratching the surface - technically his book should have been called the First 12 Caesars. They did for something of a dynasty. Without going and researching, not sure when that trend ended - I would guess around 100AD.
