List of Roman emperors

The Roman emperors were the rulers of the Roman Empire dating from the granting of the title of Augustus to Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus by the Roman Senate in 27 BC, after major roles played by the populist dictator and military leader Julius Caesar. Augustus maintained a facade of Republican rule, rejecting monarchical titles but calling himself princeps senatus and princeps civitatis; the title of Augustus was conferred on his successors to the imperial position. The style of government instituted by Augustus is called the Principate and continued until reforms by Diocletian; the modern word'emperor' derives from the title imperator, granted by an army to a successful general. For example, Augustus' official name was Imperator Caesar Divi Filius Augustus; the territory under command of the emperor had developed under the period of the Roman Republic as it invaded and occupied most of Europe and portions of northern Africa and western Asia. Under the republic, regions of the empire were ruled by provincial governors answerable to and authorised by the Senate and People of Rome.

During the republic, the chief magistrates of Rome were two consuls elected each year. In the mid 1st century, Tiberius led major northern military conquests and under his reign, Jesus of Nazareth's preaching commences. Nero began the Persecution of Christians in the Roman Empire. In the late 3rd century, after the Crisis of the Third Century, Diocletian formalised and embellished the recent manner of imperial rule, establishing the so-called Dominate period of the Roman Empire; this was characterised by the explicit increase of authority in the person of the Emperor, the use of the style Dominus Noster. The rise of powerful Barbarian tribes along the borders of the empire and the challenge they posed to defense of far-flung borders and unstable imperial succession led Diocletian to divide the administration geographically of the Empire in 286 with a co-Augustus. In 330, Constantine the Great, the first Christian emperor introduced freedom of religion and established a second capital in Byzantium, which he renamed Constantinople.

For most of the period from 286 to 480, there was more than one recognised senior emperor, with the division based in geographic terms. This division was in place after the death of Theodosius I in 395, which historians have dated as the division between the Western Roman Empire and the Eastern Roman Empire. However, formally the Empire remained a single polity, with separate co-emperors in the separate courts; the fall of the Western Roman Empire, so the end of a separate list of emperors below, is dated either from the de facto date of 476 when Romulus Augustulus was deposed by the Germanic Herulians led by Odoacer or the de jure date of 480, on the death of Julius Nepos, when Eastern Emperor Zeno ended recognition of a separate Western court. In the period that followed, the Empire is treated by historians as the Byzantine Empire governed by the Byzantine Emperors, although this designation is not used universally, continues to be a subject of specialist debate today. In the 7th century, Heraclius meets the Companions of Muhammad, thus establishing the first meeting with Islam and facing the Arab Muslim conquests.

The line of emperors continued until the death of Constantine XI Palaiologos during the Fall of Constantinople in 1453, when the remaining territories were captured by the Ottoman Empire under Mehmed II. The Ottoman dynasty carried on using the tile of Caesar of Rome. Counting all individuals to have possessed the full imperial title, including those who did not technically rule in their own right, this list contains 196 emperors and 6 ruling empresses, for a total of 202 monarchs; the emperors listed in this article are those agreed to have been'legitimate' emperors, who appear in published regnal lists. The word'legitimate' is used by most authors, but without clear definition not since the emperorship was itself rather vaguely defined legally. In Augustus' original formulation, the princeps was selected by either the Senate or "the people" of Rome, but quite the legions became an acknowledged stand-in for "the people." A person could be proclaimed as emperor by their troops or by "the mob" in the street, but in theory needed to be confirmed by the Senate.

The coercion that resulted was implied in this formulation. Furthermore, a sitting emperor was empowered to name a successor and take him on as apprentice in government and in that case the Senate had no role to play, although it sometimes did when a successor lacked the power to inhibit bids by rival claimants. By the medieval period, the definition of the Senate became vague as well, adding to the complication. Lists of legitimate emperors are therefore influenced by the subjective views of those compiling them, partly by historical convention. Many of the'legitimate' emperors listed here acceded to the position by usurpation, many'illegitimate' claimants had a legitimate claim to the position; the following criteria have been used to derive emperor lists: Any individual who undisputedly ruled the whole Empire, at some point, is a'legitimate emperor'. Any individual, nominated as heir or co-emperor by a legitimate emperor, who succeeded to rule in his own right, is a legitimate emperor. Where there were multiple claimants, none were legitimate heirs
