Over the years I’ve read many popular history books about the Roman Empire and the Republic but I continue to be pleasantly surprised how modern authors manage to portray the period or specific elements in a fresh light. Tom Holland also holds the top spot among my favourite historical writers as some of his other works like Rubricon and Millenium left a lasting impression not least because of his narrative prosaic form of writing.

Dynasty is not dissimilar and its prose is presented with the same authority. The book starts where Rubicon ended, with the death of Caesar to lay the foundation of the phenomenal history of the first five emperors. The book manages to unburden itself from the perceptions of either classical or modern historians. And so the reader gets Holland's interpretation of for example how Octavian first converts himself from a battlefield-coward and bloodthirsty co-tyrant to a divine imperial blueprint while forging the Julio-Claudian dynasty - all through his excellent strategic insight and careful manoeuvring of public opinion. It’s a compelling view that would justify Augustus’ preeminent position among the emperors.
From that point on the real, though much more well-known, juice starts; Augustus’ succession issues, his relationship with his daughter Julia, the controversial character of Tiberius (painted here in a relatively favourable light) ect. It’s all material that would fit in perfectly in a Game of Thrones scenario even before it starts to address the cruel antics of Caligula and Nero.
So to me it was a very lively, refreshing read, that is once more particularly well told. Yet its not academic as the author tends to make assumptions and little is questioned, but for that reason it reads well and I guess I was prepared for that. As such I thoroughly enjoyed this work.
