Geta and Caracalla were brothers who ruled Rome together after their father died in 209. They were young men when they took power, which matches the actors' ages in the film. This adds some historical truth to the movie, even though it might seem complicated.

Why "Gladiator 2" Features Two Emperors in Rome?

In "Gladiator 2," the reason there are two

emperors comes from their father, Septimius Severus. He became emperor in 193 and brought stability after Commodus' death. The film shows Geta and Caracalla ruling together, but before that, there were three emperors, which made things even more complicated.

Severus became emperor after a lot of fighting and after his predecessor, Pertinax, was killed. He made Caracalla his co-emperor in 198 when Caracalla was only 10 years old. Then, Geta became co-emperor in 209, right before Severus died.

True Story of Geta and Caracalla

In "Gladiator 2," Geta and Caracalla's story might not end well, based on history. They became co-emperors in 209, but their rule was filled with distrust and plots against each other. When their father, Severus, died in 211, Caracalla tricked Geta into a meeting and had him killed. This ended their joint rule.
