If the ancient Rome Empire is known for its great rulers, then the name of Emperor Caligula is also included in this list of rulers, who is notorious in the history of the world due to his adultery and cruelty.

The Roman emperor Caligula is counted among the first dictators known for his flamboyant behavior and quick temper. Doctor Bennett, a senior lecturer teaching history at University College of London, explains that Caligula once ordered that all the ninths stand in a row in the Bay of Naples so that they could walk over them from one city to another. The horses of the race were very much liked. It is said that he had built a separate house for his beloved horse, in which soldiers were deployed to serve him, as well as the horse was given liquor in a gold jar.


Caligula explored all the possibilities of the use of universal power and power. He believed himself to be God and compelled people to worship him. Whoever opposed him was put to death. He had crossed all the limits of cruelty in his rule. He was so ruthless that he used to leave criminals in the lion’s cage to punish them. Not only this, many times he cut off the tongue of criminals and left them in the lion’s cage so that the man could not even scream. In just four years of rule it killed many thousands of people and eventually itself was killed at the hands of its courtiers.

Caligula was a victim of promiscuous sexomania. He used to enjoy women in the way of reaping fruits. Once he ordered his courtiers to have physical enjoyment with their wives in the filled court. Caligula considered himself the first authority on women of the entire empire. He would deface himself whenever he wanted. Also made his three sisters a victim of his lust and raped his half-brother. He used to get a lot of fun watching people’s work. This habit of sadism led to its destruction.
