Best Answer

Maximus Decimus Meridius was a fictional character and hero of the Movie Gladiator (2000). When Emperor came to know of the conspiracy to kill him (through sister Lucilla), he got Maximus arrested. Then in the Coloseum basement he stabbed his lung and got the wound covered by armor. During the duel that ensued between the two in the arena, Commodus was killed when his soldiers betrayed him. Maximus also succumbed to the punctured lung 'to meet his wife and son in afterlife' asking senator Graccius to restore power of Roman Kingdom to the senate.

What did the gladiator gaul fight with?

I guess you are referring to Tigris of Gaul. He fought with a sword. Tigris of Gaul was a gladiator who was "undefeated". However, he was defeated by Maximus Meridius. Tigris faced the ex-general Maximus Meridius in the Colosseum in 180 AD. He was announced as "The only undefeated Gladiator" by the host of the games, Cassius. The match was unfair for Maximus, because the emperor Commodus sent three tigers to attack him and kill because he hated him. Tigris was stabbed in the foot by Maximus, who was bleeding after slaying a tiger. Leaning down, blood came from his mask's mouth and he collapsed to the ground. The audience wanted Maximus to kill the "undefeated" defeated Gladiator, but Maximus mercifully spared the Gladiator. This earned him the title "Maximus the merciful" from the crowd and angered Commodus.
