Hadrian’s adopted son and heir, Antoninus Pius was notable for one reason: his pacifism. Emperors of Rome tended to be brutal individuals, drawn from the ranks of the imperial army, and quick to take up arms. It was said of Antoninus that, not only did he never commanded an army in his 23 years on the throne, but he never so much as inspected a garrison. He built the Antonine Wall, north of Hadrian’s Wall, to keep out the Picts.
