||Centurions were the guardians
of Rome. At the height of the Roman Republic there were
over five thousand qualified Roman Centurions in the
Legions. To be a Centurion required that, in a mostly
illiterate society, one be able to read and write
clearly, to be able to convey and create orders, to be
capable of not only performing every skill of a Roman
soldier but teach every skill of a Roman soldier.
Becoming a Centurion required
intense physical ability, courage beyond the norm, years
of sacrifice and a total devotion to the philosophy
which was Rome.
When Rome fell to barbarian invaders, there were less
than five hundred qualified Centurions. Not because Rome
had fewer people but because it had fewer willing to
make the sacrifices. And the last Centurions left their
shields in the heather and took a barbarian bride…
We are… The Last Centurions.
And this Rome SHALL NOT FALL!
