Summary
Commodus is synonymous with debauchery and megalomania, best remembered for fighting as a gladiator. Ridiculed and maligned by historians since his own time, modern popular culture knows him as the patricidal villain in Ridley Scott's 'Gladiator'. Much of his infamy is clearly based on fact, but is this the full story? John McHugh reviews the ancient evidence to present a full-length biography of Commodus. His twelve-year reign is set in its historical context, showing that the 'kingdom of gold' he supposedly inherited was actually an empire devastated by plague and war
