Augustus Caesar (23 September 63 BC – 19 August, 14 AD) was the founder of the Roman Empire and its first Emperor, ruling from 27 BC until his death in 14 AD (source: Wikipedia).

Though Julius Caesar is credited in literature for being the patriarch icon figure of the illustrious Roman Empire, it is in fact Julius Caesar's opportunistic great-nephew, Augustus, who sees the Roman Empire gain in ornamental splendor.

Together with Mark Antony and Marcus Lepidus, Augustus formed the seminal bold Second Triumvirate to defeat the covert assassins of Julius Caesar.

After the Triumvirate dissolved due to frailties, Augustus found himself as capable of seizing full federal powers over Rome and he did so, realizing a new era of Roman Republic determinism. During his under-rated reign, Augustus Caesar expanded Rome's dominion into the powers of Egypt, Dalmatia, Pannonia, Noricum, Raetia, Africa, Germania, and Hispania. He even supervised the diplomatic presidio over the Ancient Persian Parthian Empire.

Augustus also reformed the Roman system of taxation, developed networks of roads with an official courier system, established a standing army, established the Praetorian Guard, created official police and fire-fighting services for Rome, and rebuilt much of the city during his reign (source: Wikipedia).

The lucrative qualities of the commanding reign of successful Augustus Caesar historically reflects (albeit metaphorically) the economic symbolic academic value of the industry-themed Hollywood (USA) movie "Celebrity" (1998).

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
