There is currently not much action in The Empire , but it is still available.

Congratulations to chrilla for finishing Caesar's Challenge with 36 first places, and to toycivic, top governor in The Empire, with 9 cities and a population of 392,504.

Marcus Nonius Macrinus was probably the inspiration for the main character in the (somewhat fictional) film Gladiator.

According to Keith Heitmann, Caesar IV Online's days are numbered. So why not give the maps for the current season a try? They are Alexandria and Tarsus (high population), Colonia Agrippina and Ephesus (high score), Londinium (time trial) and Djedu (unspecified and therefore probably unplayable).

The winners for Season LIII were chrilla, Colinus, Thanho1 (two firsts), Grotewittebeer and Caboman, with Grotewittebeer setting a new record for the Carthago high score map.
