In the series, a soldier called Petronius unsuccessfully tries to murder the emperor Valentinian. The name "Petronius" was probably chosen because in reality the emperor was eventually killed by a senator called Petronius. See more »
In the battle against the Visigoths, you can see that the soldiers carrying the standards of the Roman legion are positioned in the front lines. No Roman general would have put them there, because it would make them far too easy a target for enemy archers, skirmishers and infantry, especially since the standard bearers couldn't carry shields. Standard bearers (signiferes) were usually positioned behind the column of soldiers. See more »

This was an astonishingly great series.I don't usually watch mini-series as a rule, but I caught the end of this one and then came back for more! Kudos to USA for giving us quality TV in a "reality TV" world. Everything about this was standout - acting, filming, writing, directing, everything. The attention to detail was superb and it was a gripper from the start.
Please produce this as a video for home purchase!
Finally, where is Gerard Butler and who has been hiding him. We need to hear more about him and see more of him on the big and little screen. He is not only great to look at, but one of the best actors I've seen in ages. Russell Crow - who's that?
More More More Gerry Butler.
