Have you already joined the Roman Empire meme bandwagon? Yes, this may sound too nerdy, or too much about history geeks, but one way or another, you may have been tagged in these memes circulating around the Internet lately.
Well, the Internet has officially declared the Roman Empire a meme (out of all subject matters, right?), and netizens are going crazy about these.
Basically, the Roman Empire meme is about women asking their husband or boyfriend how often they think about, what else, the Roman Empire.
The culprit? Instagram netizen @gaiusflavius who, by the way, sports a costume on his profile picture, following the theme, as of press time.
@gaiusflavius recently posted on reel suggesting that ladies should ask their husband or boyfriend how often they think about the Roman Empire
“You will be surprised by their answers!”
And sure they would. This challenge gave birth to a lot of funny memes about this trend. Here are the best ones.
Twitter netizen @narnialogy posted photos from the movie “The Chronicles of Narnia,” writing in the caption, “forget the roman empire, how often do you think about the golden age of narnia”
Meanwhile, another netizen on X, @reputamatt, said, “i know nothing about the roman empire, but i can tell you everything about the taylor swift empire,” posting a photo of a jam-packed Swift concert.
Apparently, Meta’s chief executive officer and billionaire Mark Zuckerberg has also joined the bandwagon, who said he is “not sure” if he thinks about the Roman Empire too much, but joked about naming his daughters – Maxima, August, and Aurelia – after Roman emperors. Coincidence or not?
