We're going back to ancient Rome for a two-part look at the most notoriously evil emperors the empire ever had!
This week, Sean gets us warmed up with Caligula, the man whose name has become a byword for madness and sexual depravity. Rome's third emperor ruled for less than four years, so what could this guy have done to get this kind of reputation? Was Caligula assassinated for being a violent madman, or was he just sleeping with the wrong guys' wives? And did he really try to make his horse a consul?
Some of the facts are disputed, some obscure... But most of them are pretty gross.
