Aurelius was the last of the so-called Five Good Emperors.
On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand help us celebrate the birthdays of Marcus Aurelius and Rudolf Hess. Aurelius, born in 121 AD, ruled the Roman Empire from 161 AD until his death nineteen years later. Rudolf Hess, a prominent Nazi politician, was born on this day in 1894 and spent the last 46 years of his life in a prison after being convicted of crimes against humanity. He committed suicide in the reading room of his prison at age 93. Join us for this episode of This Day In History!
