    Wonder if its more than coincidence that praetor and the latin for predator (preadator <tt>praed amacr. tor</tt>, pillager, from <tt>praed amacr. r imacr. </tt>, to plunder) are such similar words.

    No, The Praetorian class is based on the Latin Praetorian Guard (cohors praetoria). The elite guard of the Roman Emporers. They gained their name and position from Cohors: cohort and Praetorium: generals tent. They were originally the elite bodyguards of Roman generals, and when Julius Caesar the most infamous general of his time became emporer, his personal guard, his Cohors Praetoria were elevated in status to imperial guards. In 27 B.C. Emperor Augustus created a permanent corps to guard the emperor and stationed them throughout Rome. Constantine 1 disbanded the Praetorian Guard permanently in 312 A.D.

    The correlation is direct and telling. Imperial Guard class. Genus Praetoria - Praetorian Class.

    Yes. but the slave warrior might be picked up under the guise of the patriot act without his family knowing, and lacking any formal habeus corpus requirements or a public trial, said slave could rot away or be killed without anyone knowing and the only thing left in the file being a missing persons report and a family left wondering who offed their loved one and why no body can be found.

    ALL tyrants fall. Few if any live to die a 'natural' death. This lesson is lost on our current tyrant.......

    The tyranny of Roman Imperial rule, under ONE leader, an Emperor, lasted centuries. - More centuries than the United States has been in existence. Emperors come, emperors go, but the empire endures. Julius Caesar took power from the Senate of Rome in 49 BC and concentrated it in an Imperial seat that lasted from his rise until Constantine which ended the "official" life of the Roman Empire, in 326 A.D. - nearly 400 years. The Tyrant may fall, but the power that makes that tyrant does not go away, and a new tyrant rises to take his place.
