Although there is general agreement that the Pax Romana began with Augustus Caesar (see question #80892), there seems to be a range of opinions on when it ended. Opinions include the end of the reigns of Marcus Aurelius (180 AD), Commodus (192 AD), or Severus (211 AD). Whichever emperor you pick, the end of the Pax Romana was characterized by the decline of absolute Roman military power, and the gradual eroding of the Empire's borders by barbarian invaders.
As a follow up to my quiz on folks who died before 21 I thought it would be interesting to investigate a bit to find out who had left us before the age of 30...still very young! I hope this quiz is instructive...enjoy.
