The reign of Caligula is mostly noted for his cruelty, sadism and sexual perversion. He worked very hard at removing any legal restraints that prevented the emperor from exercising unconstrained power. He spent lavishly on luxurious housing for himself. However, he did annex the Kingdom of Mauretania, and constructed two new aqueducts during his reign. He was assassinated in 41 AD by his Praetorian Guard.

Caligula did not cause the decline of the Roman Empire. Because he spent lavishly, he emptied the coffers of the treasury. However, after him the finances were restored and the heyday of the empire continued. The decline of the Roman Empire (if there was one) started one and a half centuries later.
