A Roman emperor, Gaius Caesar, known as Caligula, succeeded the cruel Emperor and tyrant Tiberius. Born in 12 A.D. he served as the emperor of Rome from 37 to 41 A.D. Records depict him as a cruel and unpredictable leader. He restored treason trials, put people to death for his own pleasure and declared he was a living God. In an ironic twist of fate, he was murdered in 41 A.D. the same way as his grandfather, Julius Caesar, when a group of assassins led by Cassius Chaerea stabbed him to death.
