      Caesar had a fully legitimate son and Octavian wasn’t him.

        Caeserion doesn't actually count because he was a bastard and Cleopatra wasn't Roman and Caesar never married her. Legally, Octavian was Caesar's son

        Not unlike the other leaders that a anon above mentioned but unlike them Augustus put an end to the civil wars

        Ive remember listening to Mike Duncan history of rome podcast and how he mentions how the last century of the republic was one of the worst times to be a roman citizen they would fight against each other once and grow old only to see their children and grandchildren do the same

        That's why Pompey was so interesting, he ended up being involved in both to some extent and he expanded the Republic's land in the east

        Caesar named Augustus heir and adopted him so Augustus was legitimate and designated personally by Caesar too

    So was Ceasar
    And Sulla
    And Marius had tried...
    Late Roman Republic was just a succession of usurpers, and when it wasn't, it was politically locked between two ideological factions or cliques, waiting for usurpers to come along
    Augustus fixed it.

    Yeah. The emperors had a real legitimacy problem. Why would the republic need an emperor? This is why the emperor-cult was devised. He became a theocracy to legitimize his rule

    wrong, userper implies there was a monarchy he illegally overthrew, the term you want is coup. Technically speaking, he was legally made emperor by the Senate itself, or rather the system was so broken there were no blocks to him becoming emperor. Augustus had done nothing new, as far back as the Gracchi the legitimacy of the republic was put up to the test time after time and it failed almost every time, either allowing generals to get away with a rule breaking or senators to practice political violence, all he just did was made it stick.

      Ptolemaios Kaisar was the true successor of Caesar. Octavian was nothing more than a thief.

    now if you mean that he was a tyrant who dealt the final blow to the Republic, you would have a point.
