HOW DID EMPEROR TIBERIUS KEEP HIS POWER?

Tiberius was a strong, well built man who always tried to set a good impression of himself on his people. after retiring though, he came off as a vicious and cruel man. Most of Tiberius’ policies were very fair and appropriate. He strengthened the navy, replenished the treasury, and abandoned the tradition of holding gladiatorial games which also made Tiberius one of the most likable emperors. Tiberius didn't have many threats to his title either so it made his life as emperor a whole lot easier as no one wanted to overthrow him.

HOW DID TIBERIUS USE HIS POWER?

Emperor Tiberius used his power to make most things fair for the people of Rome like banishing gladiatorial fights so many slaves lives were spared instead of being killed or badly injured for entertainment but Tiberius also had some tough laws and bad influences on Rome. Tiberius was not trusted by the senate and he tried to mimic Augustus and the way he ruled. Tiberius' legacy was to help build and make the empire of Rome stronger after he passed away. Tiberius ended his reign as emperor in 37AD when he passed away.
