Even though he was never raised as a soldier and preferred to engage in philosophy rather than warfare, emperor Marcus Aurelius fought a great number of battles. As leader of the Roman Empire alongside his adoptive brother Lucius Verus, the Stoic emperor was confronted by threats from the Parthians, the Marcomanni, and others.
