The Roman Empire at it's greatest was during the rule of Trajan, from A.D.98 to A.D.117. Trajan conquored lands no Roman thought possable. He fought and won the Dacian Wars (102-106) and soon after defeated Britan(109). He defeated the Parthians at Ctesiphon in 116, and captured Armenia in 117. He pushed on toward Germany, but could not capture Teutoburg Forest. The Roman Empire now had all the lands from Mauritania in the south, to Britania in the North, to Mesopotamia and Armenia in the East. In the year 117, Hadrian became the new Emperor. He built forts around the empire to defend aganst the "Barbarian" armies. The most famous was Hadrian's Wall in northern England. Still standing today, this wall was built to keep out the powerful Caldonian armies from the north.
