Summary
Victorious general Maximus Decimus Meridias has been named keeper of Rome and its empire by dying emperor Marcus Aurelius, so that rule might pass from the Caesars back to the people and Senate. However, Marcus' son, Commodus, assassinates his father and seizes power. Escaping an ordered execution, Maximus hurries to his home in Spain, too late to save his wife and son from the same order. Taken into slavery and trained as a gladiator by Proximo, Maximus lives to take his revenge and fulfill the dying wish of his emperor
