The Bronze Emperor is a historical fiction novella tracing the Equestrian Statue of Marcus Aurelius from its creation in the Roman Empire to 2012. Each chapter moves the story forward and time, focusing on an event or a moment in history that either directly involved the statue or simply happened nearby with the statue as a silent witness.
