    Wherefore, through that empire, so extensive and of so long continuance, so illustrious and glorious also through the virtues of such great men, the reward which they sought was rendered to their earnest aspirations, and also examples are set before us, containing necessary admonition, in order that we may be stung with shame if we shall see. The “five good emperors,” as they are usually called, were Nerva, Trajan, and Hadrian (who were related to one another only by adoption), and the two Antonines, Antoninus Pius and Marcus Aurelius. The period of general prosperity which began under Vespasian continued under these emperors.

After the death of Marcus Aurelius and the ascension of his son Commodus the Empire would never be the same, and even the relatively stable reign of Septimius Severus was merely a prelude to the chaos and bloodshed of the Crisis of the Third .

It was not a bloodline. Nerva was made emperor by the killers. The second of the Five Emperors was the Yellow Emperor's grandson, Zhuanxu, who ruled for a modest 78 years.

During that time, he changed China's matriarchal culture to a patriarchy, created a calendar, and composed the first piece of music, which was called "The Answer to the Clouds."Author: Kallie Szczepanski. Nerva was the first of the Five Good Emperors, and started a reign that would allow Rome to see great prosperity.

Nerva didn’t choose to be emperor and instead was chosen by the Senate. He only ruled for two years but in that time he managed to write the wrongs of the previous ruler, which included lowering oppressive tax rates, allowed.

Unfortunately, the lack of thoughtful design may discourage : Five Good Emperors The period of time ranging from Nerva to Marcus Aurelius has been generally referred to as that of the '5 Good Emperors.' While the definition of 'good' is always subjective, there is little argument that this period provided the greatest stretch.

The Nerva–Antonine dynasty was a dynasty of seven Roman Emperors who ruled over the Roman Empire from AD 96 to These Emperors are Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian, Antoninus Pius, Lucius Verus, Marcus Aurelius, and first five of them (excluding Lucius Verus) are commonly known as the "Five Good Emperors".The first five of the six successions within this dynasty were notable in that.

The so-called "Three Augusts" and "Five Emperors" (sanhuang wudi 三皇五帝) were persons in early Chinese "Five Emperors" or "Five Sovereigns" (wudi 五帝) were often seen as worldly, yet historically not tangible, rulers, while the Three Augusts ever had a more divine term wudi came up during the Warring States period 戰國 (5th cent BCE), while the term.

The Ming dynasty ruled China from tosucceeding the Mongol-led Yuan dynasty and falling amidst much peasant turmoil to the Manchu-ruled Qing n emperors ruled over the whole of China spanning years. A series of claimants to the Ming throne continued to claim the throne of what was known as the Southern Ming until the last was executed in The Year of the Five Emperors refers to the year AD, in which there were five claimants for the title of Roman five were Pertinax, Didius Julianus, Pescennius Niger, Clodius Albinus and Severus.

Pertinax. The year opened with the murder of Commodus on New Year's Eve, 31 December The City Prefect Pertinax was proclaimed Emperor on New Year's Day, 1 January The Wǔfāng Shàngdì (五方上帝 "Five Forms of the Highest Deity"), or simply Wǔdì (五帝 "Five Deities") or Wǔshén (五神 "Five Gods") are, in Chinese canonical texts and common Chinese religion, the fivefold manifestation of the supreme God of Heaven (天 Tiān).This theology harkens back at least to the Shang dynasty.

Described as the "five changeable faces of Heaven", they Simplified Chinese: 五方上帝. The Book of Rites (禮記) equates the Five Emperors with the Five Lineages (五氏), which comprise: Youchao-shi (有巢氏) Suiren-shi (燧人氏) Fuxi (伏羲氏) Nüwa (女媧氏) Shennong (神農氏) All these “emperors” were only people with great contributions or famous rulers of tribal unions.

The Year of the Four Emperors in 69 AD, following the death of Nero by suicide, was but a taste of what was to come, and the instability that came after the assassination of the brutal and feckless Commodus meant the year AD saw a total of five emperors rule : Graham Land.
