    Dear players,


    Travian: Codex Victoria has close link to the 15-th anniversary of our game. Have you already found the hidden hint on that? Yes, that’s correct. The name CODEX VICTORIA contains XV in its name!


    Today we invite you to take part in another small history quiz dedicated to this number.



    Here are 5 facts from the history of Ancient Europe. All of them have some connection to number XV. Find this connection and explain it it in this thread.


    I. The rule of this emperor is often associated with tyranny, and nowadays his name sometimes serves as synonym of personal cruelty. The most famous fire of Rome happened during his reign and some historians believe that it was him who initiated that.


    II. A ruthless but efficient ruler, he performed the reform of Roman coinage and instituted the new Capitoline Games, analogue of the Greek Olympic Games, where contestants from various regions came to participate in varios events for athletes, orators, comedians, magicians, historians etc. His reign formed a good foundation for the peaceful second century of Roman Empire


    III. A very famous Roman dictator, war commander and historian whose notes about campaigns he took part in (i.e. Commentaries on the Gallic War) serve as one of the most important primary sources about his time.


    IV. He was a Commander of Germania, a nephew, a brother, a father and a grandfather of Emperor, though he had never been an emperor himself. His sudden death in Egypt at the age of 33 arose lots of speculations among the Roman citizens who suspected that he had been murdered by the order of his uncle out of jealousy to his glory.


    V. There were 3 of their kind who were known under the same name. One of them took part in Caesar’s Civil Wars and met their end in North Africa in 49 BC, second fought in Battle of Actium and gained their glorious second name there, and third was involved in wars against Frisians and was besieged during Batavian Rebelion.


    Important – to take part in this contest you need to give explanation how exactly the described event, person etc is linked to number XV.
