      Suetonius walks us through, the personal lives of twelve Roman Emperors. The history Suetonius describes, is not a listing of accomplishments and historical feats. This is a history of the Caesars day to day peronal experiences. In fact, this is normally the type of information I avoid/5(). The Twelve Caesars is probably the most in depth book ever written about the personal lives of the twelve caesars. Suetonius goes to great lengths to reveal the way these men really were, as human beings. Each emperor is dissected, and his actions beyond politics and professionalism revealed.

Suetonius' Twelve Caesars is a key narrative source for the period it covers and, unlike Tacitus, it has survived entire and is uninterrupted. Beginning with Caesar himself, in the mid first century BC, it ends in AD 96 with Domitian and covers the reigns of such emperors as Tiberius, Caligula, and Nero/5().
