Overview

Then as now, connections counted. Marcus Aurelius was born to a good family, one related by blood and marriage to rulers and bankers. From birth he was destined to lead.

Romans of that era had come through the debauchery of an earlier epoch and were usually a sober and respectable group. Those who inherited power and vast fortunes were expected to set an example.

Marcus Aurelius did just that. He shouldered his responsibilities with a clear sense of honor. He was the first ombudsman in history, and if his role as a legislator or conquerer was not great, he did set high standards for emulation.
