From the spectacle of gladiatorial combat to the intrigue of the Senate, from the foreign wars that created an empire to the betrayals that almost tore it apart, the Emperor novels tell the remarkable story of the man who would become the greatest Roman of them all: Julius Caesar. The Gates of Rome introduces an ambitious young man facing his first great test. In the city of Rome, a titanic power struggle is about to shake the Republic to its core. Citizen will fight citizen in a bloody conflict—and Julius Caesar will be in the thick of the action.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Stunning. It begins with hints of a mystery and continues as a galvanizing historical thriller…Iggulden knows that history derives from ‘story.’ And this story has barely begun. The Gates of Rome is its first, exhilarating, installment. Don’t miss it.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “This latest example of the reading public’s love affair with history, a trilogy about Julius Caesar, has a testosterone count that rises by the page…The great events and breathtaking brutality of the times are brought lavishly to life.”

    Guardian (London)

  • “It was a time of turmoil, chaos, revolutions, casual violence, and savage brutality, and Iggulden’s descriptions of the culture and environment are vivid. Although covering a period unknown to most lay readers, Emperor is a surprisingly fast and often exciting read.”

    Library Journal

  • “Iggulden’s debut casts authentically detailed light on the early years of the great Roman general and statesman Julius Caesar.”

    " I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. Conn Iggulden is a gifted writer. I am not a history buff so the historical inaccuracies didn't bother me - ignorance is bliss! Historical books like this one are virtual time machines. I was transported! "

    " Awful. It takes special skill to turn a fascinating subject like Roman history and render it unto dreck. "
