In the movie Gladiator, a scene occurs between the current emperor (Marcus Aurelius) and his choice for a successor. During the short conversation the emperor asks Maximus to hear him out in his request. He tells Maximus that he would like him to succeed his throne. “I will empower you to one end alone; to hand the empire back to the senate (people).”
