About the Author
L. J. Trafford studied ancient history at the University of Reading, after which she took a job as a tour guide in the Lake District. Moving to London in 2000, she began writing the Four Emperors series. The series comprises four books-Palatine, Galba's Men, Otho's Regret, and Vitellius' Feast-which cover the dramatic fall of Nero and the chaotic year of the four emperors that followed. She is a regular contributor to The History Girls blog and once received an Editor's Choice mark from The Historical Novel Society. Her proudest moment remains creating #phallusthursday, a popular Twitter hashtag dedicated to depictions of penises in antiquity.
Reviews
"From the 'sadistically cruel' Caligula to the 'hopelessly weak' Valentinian II, the book explores the mad, bad and the catastrophically incompetent of Rome's leaders."--Royston Crow
