Caligula is known today as a disreputable Emperor, who ruled well for the first two years of his reign, then descended into a world of pleasures and megalomania, as well as becoming ever more paranoid. Caligula was particularly at odds with the Senate. We are told by Cassius Dio that he reinstated popular elections to determine the holders of senatorial offices. While popular with the people, this was not well received by the Senate.
