Kings and Generals historical animated documentary series on Roman history continues with a video on the emperor Commodus, where we talk about the real story of the famous villain of the movie Gladiator and ask if he was the one who ended the golden Age of Rome after the death of his father Marcus Aurelius. We'll try to use a variety of sources to see if Commodus was a decent emperor who tried to reform the empire or a maniac whose paranoia was unjustified and led to suffering.
