Emperors Don’t Die in Bed (Keizers sterven niet in bed)
Few rulers in history have ruled over a larger area than the Roman emperors. No matter how great their power, there was always danger. Based on ancient sources, Fik Meijer describes the last days of the lives of the Roman emperors, from dictator Caesar to the last emperor of the Western Roman Empire: Romulus Augustulus. And of all 87 official emperors, remarkably few died in bed.
