A period of unrest and civil wars in the 1st century BC marked the transition of Rome from a republic to an empire as its mentioned in imperial Rome map. This period encompassed the career of Julius Caesar, who eventually took full power over imperial Rome as its dictator. After his assassination in 44 BCE, the triumvirate of Mark Antony, Lepidus, and Octavian, Caesar nephew, ruled. It was not long before Octavian went to war against Antony in northern Africa, and after his victory at Actium (31 BCE) he was crowned Rome’s first emperor, Augustus.
