    Quite a good video and short summary, narrated by Brian Cox:

    As I've never really studied Rome in any depth I'd say it surprised me how many of the Rulers names I was familiar with. If not the specific details, at least with their name was familiar to me.

    I have a couple of books that make fairly light but interesting reading. Between them, they cover the republic and the emperors:
    Chronicle of the Roman Republic by Philip Matyszak and Chronicle of the Roman Emperors by Chris Scarre.

    Ooh, I have that one - it's a great introduction to the various Emperors. :)

    Yes, they're great introductory books. I also have Chronicles of the Popes, the Tsars and the Pharoahs...all worth a look if you've an interest in history:)

    I also have the Pharoahs one, but didn't know about the Tsar or Popes ones - I might find them a useful reference for story research. :)
