Help Hadrian save his house - he was such a better Emperor

Help Hadrian save his house - he was such a better Emperor.


.
Septimius Severinus - One of the worst Roman emperors of all time

.
Why do I say this? Well, let me tell you something Ernie!!!
.
He succeeded a guy called Commodus - who liked to
 to dress like the god Hercules, wearing lion skins and carrying a club.
what can one say??
.
He paid buggar all attention to civil affairs.
.
His wife Domna of Berytus was far more talented than he was,
but he hogged all the glory. She developed FAR MORE culture than he did.
.
He was a rotten parent - presiding over a VERY dysfunctional family.
..Publius Septimius Geta was the younger son of the emperor Septimius Severus. 
Geta's rivalry with his older brother, Caracalla, culminated in Geta's murder
less than a year after Severus' death
.
He quickly transformed the authority of the state
into a military dictatorship  and bumped off the Senate

He went around slaughtering martyrs - 
Alban is the first recorded Christian martyr. The traditional date of his death is 304,
during the persecution under the Emperor Diocletian; but many scholars now
date it as around 209, during the persecution under the Emperor Septimius Severus. 
.
After the end of the Severan dynasty in 235, fifty years of anarchy
 under twenty different emperors followed until Diocletian restored order in 284.
.
Typical lack of delegation of duties, leaving the Empire vulnerable
.
Human Resource Managers Beware!!
