Gladiator: The Real Story

He(Commodus) renamed Rome Colonia Commodiana, the ‘Colony of Commodus’, and renamed the months of the year after titles held in his honour…

I always think of poor dear Commodus when I change the name of my capital city/planet in turn based strategy games.

Megalomania to the point of bathos and hilarity.  I love it.
