Romulus the Great


Friedrich Dürrenmatt's play Romulus der Große (Romulus the Great, 1950) shows the demise of the Western Roman Empire in the 5th century – taking place during the day of (and the day following) the Ides of March, 476. The ruin of the Empire is calmly expected by the Emperor Romulus Augustulus.
