- If it is, indeed, a title, then it should be moved to Augustus as per naming regulations. - Adm. Enzo Aquarius...I'm listening 01:36, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
- Caesar was part of his true name after being adopted by Julius Caesar in the Dictator's will. He was known as "Gaius Julius Caesar" (with his old name "Octavianus" technically supposed to be appended at the end, but in actual practice Octavian refused to use it so as to play up his links with his famous adoptive father of the same name). The title "Augustus" was assumed by him as a sort of reignal name once he instituted the principate circa 27 BC. Neither actually beacme titles in the sense that we'd recognize them until the 2nd-3rd centuries AD, particularly the settlement of the Tetrarchy of Diocletian.220.127.116.11 03:52, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
Ahh, I see. I knew there was a reason I hadn't moved this yet. :P Now that that's covered, um... what should we name this page? Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus Augustus? Or shall we simply keep it where it is? --From Andoria with Love 04:17, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus (Augustus Caesar, originally born Gaius Octavius Thurinus) was the great-nephew of Julius Caesar, and was later adopted as his son, who lived from 63 BC to 14 AD. Augustus was among the Roman Empire's most powerful leaders, promoting himself to the title of "Princeps," which gradually became the title of Emperor.
