Haha! That would indeed cover the more famous emperors who are portrayed in films or are simply known for their magnificence or madness. ;-)

Funny Elagabulus and Caracalla aren't better known. They were probably the most interesting. (And both made Caligula look like an angel.)

22 and not proud of myself, because I even know of Didius Julianus (the man who bought the empire) and Diadumenian (son of Macrinus). Lucius Verus is incorrect, his emperor name is Lucius Aurelius Verus (anyway, I tried Verus, and that was denied :p ).

And Caracalla and Caligula are both names of items of clothing! A quiz with the emperors' full names would indeed be challenging!

Why pick on Lucius when none of the full emperor names are listed?

"Heliogabalus" should be accepted.
