This paper discusses how, out of the many rulers of the Roman Empire, Octavian was the man who can be called the greatest emperor because of his numerous achievements and for the fact that, unlike other rulers, he was never dethroned. It analyzes how the fact that he was ruler of an immensely large empire and the fact that he did not encounter revolt and was never uprooted tells us that it was more due to his own cleverness and shrewd political skills than people's loyalty or devotion towards him.

From the Paper:

"He was very young when he learned of his great uncle's death in 44 BC. Julius Caesar's untimely death could have completely shattered the Roman Empire had it not been for Mark Antony, Octavian and Lepidus. Together the three formed the Second Triumvirate and divided the huge empire among themselves in such a manner that each ruler had a large area under his command. The Second Triumvirate had been approved by the Roman Assembly to govern the country for next five years and this was a sign of people's trust in the abilities of these rulers to bring an end to Roman internal problems."
