Mark Antony never became emperor, as we use the term today. The title "imperator" originally was an honor bestowed on military commanders by the legions after great victories. Many Roman generals were declared imperator by troops, including Mark Antony who ruled as a member of a triumvirate that included Octavian (Ceasar's adopted son and heir) but they had a falling out and later led opposing factions in a civil war. Antony committed suicide after his defeat by Octavian, who cooped the name imperator (from which our emperor derives) as a substitute for king which had negative connotations for the Roman people. Roman dictators served for a set period of years and the office was not hereditary; thus, that office did not suite the purposes of Octavian (later known as Augustus). He had the Roman senate declare him emperor with all the powers of a king, eventually including the hereditary right to pass on his office to his chosen heir. Antony never held sole power equivalent to a king as did Augustus.
