Caligula was the Emperor of Rome for a short period from 37 to 41 AD. Born to general Germanicus in 12 AD, he was known as a kind and intelligent ruler during the initial first months of his reign but during the later years, the accounts say that he turned into a savage king, who was high on power, perversion, destruction and sadism. He was also regarded as a tyrant by many historians. He was assassinated in 41 AD by his courtesans but their attempt went futile as his Uncle Claudius took the charge after his death and restored the Roman Empire. Caligula was also known for his philosophical inclinations. We have compiled some of his quotes on kingdom, Rome, wars, peace, and love.
