Lighthearted look into the history of all the emperors of Rome. Join us as we rank them one by one. How well did they fight for the empire? How crazy were they? What did they look like, and most importantly: do they have a certain... Je na Caesar...?
Manuel was never supposed to be emperor. He was the forth son. But when fate shoves him into the top job, can he build upon his father and grandfather’s legacy? Or will he watch it burn? Find out!
147 John II The Beautiful
His father started turning around the ship, leading it to calmer waters. Now John must take the reins (of the ship, they had reins back then) and steady the course. Can he do it? Find out!
We are back, and with the longest Emperor episode yet! Join us as we skim through the insanely busy life of Alexios!
2020 continues to be the year of fun times, and some new circumstances mean that we need to take a short break from the podcast. Fear not, we will be back in a couple of months! (plus a hint on the future of Totalus Rankium)
145 Nikepheros III
Yes, he is approaching 80, and yes, he has no legitimacy. But who knows? Maybe he is just what the empire needs right now to turn the sinking ship around. If only he could get rid of the couping pigeons...
144 Michael VII
Now Romanos is gone, Michael has the chance to righten the ship - with the help of his advisors, there will surely be no - whats that? They have been captured? And the money is not working? And the generals are all called Nikepheros and they are all revolting? Ah...
#1 podcast as in first I have ever listened to
I have just discovered podcasts and have been introduced and become hooked on a great one ie Roman emperors: Totalus Rankium. Very informative and extremely humorous in their presentation I have even gone as far as cancelling my cable and purchasing bluetooth headphones so that I have more time to attempt to finish this series before thanksgiving. My undergraduate degree was in classical studies and after starting this podcast I realize I should have attended more classes. Lol
Roman emperors totalis rankium
I’m all caught up on the emperors now. I learned so much, and was entertained at the same time. I’m a huge fan of all things Roman...not sure why, but there it is. Thank you for continuing through the virus, we need you more than ever at the moment.
