Les voies labyrinthiques de la légitimation impériale romaine

Abstract : The Roman imperial power includes several aspects such as religious, militaries and politics. Thus, it reveals a very great complexity. Indeed, the different kinds of imperial legitimacy can take a religious origin, use a glory military or it can leave it to senatorial choice. The emergence of a institutionalized personal power will come out slowly, thanks to the creation of an imperial worship, furthering an imperial legitimacy, which is based on superhuman status of prince. Then, necessarily, the emperor is going to be faced up to inheritance question. That is the reason, the emperor is going to suggest his dynastic preference, involving a member of his family inside imperial government. Thus, the research of imperial legitimacy, even if it distinguishes by his intricacy, includes three essential stages : imperial appointment, upholding of imperial power, then demise of imperial power.
