ROMAN EMPEROR TRAJAN (98-117 CE)
The reign of Trajan marks the zenith of Roman civilization. The borders were never as vast, the economy never as booming, the culture never as high. In an era of almost constant warfare, plague, and famine, it was a season of relative peace and prosperity within the empire’s borders. And those borders were indeed vast, encompassing most of Britannia, all of Gaul and Iberia, Eastern Europe to the Danube, all of Northern Africa, Greece, Anatolia, Mesopotamia, Palestine, and the Crimea. The historian Simon Sebag Montefiore writes, "Trajan, tall, athletic, stern, was the ideal emperor, perhaps the greatest since Augustus."
