Ancient Rome was a dangerous place to be an emperor. During its more than 500-year run, about 20 percent of Rome's 82 emperors were assassinated while in power. So, what led to their downfalls?

According to a new study, we can blame it on the rain…

That's as good enough reason to assassinate an Emperor as any.

Blame it on the rain, who can resist.
