Caligula (Gaius Julius Caesar Germanicus), 12-41 AD Roman Emperor, as a Young Man
Caligula, Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus. Caligula meant little boots,the soldiers of his fathers army saw him in his little boots and the name stuck. That damned army loved that kid just for that. Too bad he was NUTS.
Incitatus, Caligula's horse, was said to be horribly spoiled. Roman Emperor Caligula, built a stable of marble and covered him with great luxurious robes of lavish color. Before each race, Caligula would sleep beside Incitatus and order a silence in the city punishable by death. It is unclear if Calicula was insane or just trying to provoke the Senate by making ridicule of them by offering to give Incitatus the rank to perform Senate duties.
