As I said before, I couldn't think of a proper subject tittle... Sorry about that.  :-[

Have you ever seen the Tv-series "Rome"? It's a really good historical TV show of roman history.

Shouldn't this go in the Italian Royal Families section or the Films and TV shows section?

Yay! A other Rome fan!

I was impressed on how accurate they were, but I felt they got Cleopatra image wrong.
Oh, what part of Italy?

No, I only read the one written by Barbara Levick. Would you reccomend? It's funny that you mention him I have been itching to read a fictional play about Claudius.

Hi GoldenPen,

yes I can really reccomend it! It's very interesting, thrilling and even sometines funny. Ranke Graves is a great writer and historian!

They make really good historic live action shows, did you see the John Adam one as well?
