Marcus Aurelius

Marcus Aurelius (121 AD-180 AD)


Marcus Aurelius (; Latin:Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus; 26 April 121 – 17 March 180 AD) was Roman Emperor from 161 to 180. He ruled with Lucius Verusas co-emperor from 161 until Verus' death in 169.

Marcus Aurelius was the last of the so-called Five Good Emperors. He was a practitioner of Stoicism, and his untitled writing, commonly known as the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, is the most significant source of our modern understanding of ancient Stoic philosophy.
