One of the most incredible stories in all of history. A young boy, out of nowhere, is chosen to be the emperor of most of the known world.
What he learned, what he did, who he was, would echo in eternity.
In 138 AD, Hadrian, the emperor of Rome, chooses Marcus Aurelius to succeed him. He knew no one was born ready for the job, so he arranged for the young boy's education. The greatest philosophers of the day were assigned to teach him, and all threw themselves into crafting him into a great leader.
It's a parable for life: The gods choose something for us, call us to something. Will we answer? Will we step up? Will we achieve the greatness within us?
Marcus Aurelius did. Absolute power not only didn't corrupt, it made him better.
And now, a story for the ages is illustrated and told for all ages in The Boy Who Would Be King.
This 100 page book is written by bestselling author Ryan Holiday and illustrated by the illustrious Victor Juhasz.
