Let me introduce myself, I am a Cambridge University Student, currently doing my MA in History & Politics. I studied, briefly, Emperor Tiberius and I am glad to be debating with you, as well as against you here; evidently believing that Emperor Tiberius was a good Emperor.

Firstly, to introduce my case, the imperial treasury after his death was left with almost a billion sesterces, which was an enormous sum of money that the time and shows that he very well and understood how to handle the empire and improve its wealth; he was certainly reported at the time to be a very good general, having trained with the Military when he was younger. As well as that he was a generally good administrator of Rome and its provinces, improving their wealth and therefore the quality of life of those in the Empire.

By what we know, he was in general a good ruler; his private life was not rumored to be one of the best, but then that is personal matter and should not influence his public life. During the first part of his reign he was well-regarded, but during the second part, admittedly, he was not hailed as such a good Emperor to rumors spreading about him and the power of the Roman society of the time and his successors has made us overlook the fact that politically and economically he was an excellent head of state and he improved the Roman state for future generations.
