    (January 24, 76-July 10, 138)
    Birth name was Publius Aelius Hadrianus
    Emperor of the Roman Empire (117 - 138 AD)
    Adopted son of Trajan
    He was known to be more sexually attracted to men, especially younger adolescent males.
    His favorite lover, Antinous, drowned in the Nile.
    When this happened, he deified him and called for huge amounts of statues to be erected in his honor.
    Many Romans didn't see him as being attached to Rome, as he rarely visited the city and spent a lot of his reign traveling the empire, especially Athens.
    He re-organized the Roman Empire after Trajan had left it overextended and vulnerable and started a new policy of renunciation of Roman conquests.
    He began construction on Hadrian's Wall in northern Britain, one of the greatest construction achievements of the ancient world.
    He was one of the most infrastructure-oriented emperors of Roman history and had an intense fascination with architecture.
    Although he traveled extensively, his aim was to give the provinces a stronger attachment and identification with the whole state.
    His reign was relatively peaceful, as he observed the limit to Roman sovereignty and sought to better concentrate Roman forces.
    He had a great appreciation for art.
