Roman Emperor Pertinax was murdered by his imperial bodyguard so that they could auction off the empire to the highest bidder.

From the accession of Caesar Augustus to the military anarchy of the third century , it was a principate with Italy as metropole of the provinces and its city of Rome as sole capital 27 BC AD. Rome remained the nominal capital of both parts until AD, when it sent the imperial insignia to Constantinople Byzantium in Ancient Greek following the capture of Ravenna by the barbarians of Odoacer and the subsequent deposition of Romulus Augustus. The previous Roman Republic , which had replaced Rome's monarchy in the 6th century BC, became severely destabilized in a series of civil wars and political conflict. The following year Octavian conquered Ptolemaic Egypt , ending the Hellenistic period that had begun with the conquests of Alexander the Great of Macedon in the 4th century BC. Octavian's power was then unassailable and in 27 BC the Roman Senate formally granted him overarching power and the new title Augustus , effectively making him the first emperor. The first two centuries of the Empire were a period of unprecedented stability and prosperity known as the Pax Romana "Roman Peace".
