Caligula(b.12-41AD): 3rd emperor of Rome(followed Tiberius Claudius Nero) who suffered a "brain sickness" in AD37 and thus became crazy; c. 38 makes his horse a consular and gives him a marble stall; Goes to make Britania a Roman province, but after arriving, commands his men to, instead of fighting, collect seashells and parades them through Rome; Declares himself a god-king; Assassinated in 41 via his Praetorian Prefect(comparable to the head of the Secret Service)

The Caligula’s Nemi ships were colossal vessels hosting a palace and a temple on board. They were called “Floating Palaces” as the Emperor Caligula built them for his residence and private temple of Diana and used to spend much of his time on them.

Incitatus, Caligula's horse, was said to be spoiled. Roman Emperor Caligula, built a stable of marble and covered him with great luxurious robes of lavish color. Before each race, Caligula would sleep beside Incitatus and order a silence in the city punishable by death. It is unclear if Calicula was insane or just trying to provoke the Senate by making ridicule of them by offering to give Incitatus the rank to perform Senate duties.
