People often associate ancient Rome with great advancements in civilization and politics. In fact, the very thought of Roman history tends to conjure up romantic and poetic notions, which is likely why so many movies and shows have centered on this eclectic point in history.

It was a time when great thinkers came together to develop new philosophies - and a time when spies, criminals, and thieves were sent down to the depths of the Colosseum to fight for their survival. General Maximus Decimus Meridius in Gladiator led the Roman army to countless victories until he found himself trapped in the fighting pits. Spartacus was another Roman soldier who was forced to fight his way to freedom. Which of these characters is your favorite? While some are entirely fictional, others are based on real people.

Rome wasn't built in a day, but luckily for you, it should only take a few seconds to vote up your favorite Roman characters.
