Yet, some discrepancies in the historical accounts raise questions about what was true and what was libel intended to discredit Caligula as an utter raging evil madman. This text reexamines the evidence to reveal the exaggerations of history, while still detailing the verified truth of Caligula's monstrous ways. An attempt on Caligula's life seven months into his reign split his three years as emperor into two distinct categories: peaceful bliss and rampant cruelty. Despite his assassination after only three years, Caligula's time as emperor left a scar on the Roman Empire that would forevermore remind the Romans that power breeds corruption.
