Augustus Caesar was a good emperor. He did a lot of good things for Rome, although the Senate believed he overused his power. Therefore the Senate assassinated Casear. felicior Augusto, melior Traiano ("[be] luckier than Augustus and better than Trajan").
By all accounts Augustus Caesar was an excellent emperor. He did all he could to unify the empire and worked to bring the ancient Roman empire back from the horrors of the civil wars of the first century.
Augustus was a bad man in many people's opinions he wasn't that bad though, in faked the Romans were first to have concrete roads from him, and by the way the answer to this question is either protecting the empire or protecting the people
yes he was a great emperor but the bad thing about octaivan Augustus was that he killed Julius Caesar's son so the only thing that was bad from him was that and he was a good emperor and if u readed that it said he was the first amazing emperor.
