It was said that whenever Augustus received a request, he would bring his personal army into battle. Kingdoms that won him over as an ally were assured victory in battle, while those that became his enemy had no hope. A sea of corpses covered the battlefield... Each one had more strength than any human could ever hope to match. When Augustus gave the signal, the outcome of the battle was quickly determined.
Augustus is a masculine name of Latin origin; the meaning is "great, magnificient" or "venerable". Derived from Latin verb augere "to increase". A variant of August (English, German, Polish, and Scandinavian) and Augustine (Irish and English). Augustus (63 BC–14 AD) was the first emperor of ancient Rome, after whom it became conventional for Roman emperors to adopt Augustus as a title on their accession; aslo the month of August was named in honor of the Emperor Augustus.
