** At one point, Rome is described as being founded as a Republic, and numerous characters refer to plans to turn it back into a republic for the people. Rome was actually founded as a kingdom, only becoming a republic later on. Apparently Roman history was ''not'' re-written for the film, but that these statements were incorrect within the film itself, reflecting how the [[UnreliableNarrator characters themselves preferred to see history]].

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: The opening battle is wildly inaccurate. The Roman legions were trained to fight as a regimented force, and to maintain formation for mutual support. In the film, the formation collapses instantly upon contact with the enemy; in addition to being inaccurate, this would have almost certainly led to a Roman defeat, as, on a solo basis, the barbarians were by far the better warriors. Further, the Roman legions used spears called pila. Doctrine called for them to be thrown while the enemy closed. The Romans would then draw their swords and fight, while remaining in formation. Though the Romans are shown holding their pila in the opening scenes, they are never used against the barbarians, and we see no pila-riddled shields and/or corpses in the background.

* CombatPragmatist: He is a soldier, so his combat training is centered around killing his enemies quickly and efficiently. But this isn't as entertaining, so Proximo convinces him to start putting on a better show.

* CompositeCharacter: There were many real life people that have been cited as influencing the creation of Maximus. Including the likes of Marcus Nonius Macrinus (a Roman general who served closely under Emperor Marcus Aurelius, becoming one of his closest advisors), Narcissus (the professional Roman athlete, potentially a gladiator but likely a wrestler, that killed Commodus), Spartacus (a slave who was once used as a soldier that was eventually turned into gladiator who subsequently stood up against the corrupt Roman state and ultimately died a martyr), Cincinnatus (a high ranking Roman who turned down the chance at absolute power in favor of living a simple life as a farmer that only fought/took power when absolutely necessary), and Maximus of Hispania (obviously his name, as well as his roots in the land that would come to be called Spain from this real man who also came to be at odds with and fought against the Roman state). It is notable that in David Franzoni's original draft of the screenplay, the lead character's name was Narcissus.

''Gladiator'', released in 2000, is known for [[GenreRelaunch reviving]] the SwordAndSandal epic genre, great action sequences, and all-around general badassery; it was also a huge hit for Creator/RidleyScott. Though Scott didn't win the Oscar for Best Director, the film itself took home many others -- including the all-important Best Picture -- and earned Creator/RussellCrowe his first Oscar.

In AncientRome, General Maximus Decimus Meridius (Creator/RussellCrowe) is named heir to the ailing Emperor Marcus Aurelius (Creator/RichardHarris), who wishes that Rome be [[GoodRepublicEvilEmpire restored to a republic]] with the Senate ruling as the representative of the people. The Emperor's son, Commodus (Creator/JoaquinPhoenix), is not a happy camper: he [[SelfMadeOrphan murders his father]], declares himself to be the new Emperor, and orders that Maximus be killed when the general refuses to pledge loyalty to him. Maximus escapes his fate, but unfortunately for him, his wife and young son do not. Maximus swears to [[{{Revenge}} avenge]] [[DueToTheDead their deaths]] and [[DeathSeeker join them soon after]]; wandering around the countryside, he is soon found and brought into slavery. Maximus is trained as a [[GladiatorGames gladiator]] by his captors, and he successfully wins the crowd's approval in his first few performances; this allows Maximus to travel to Rome and compete in gladiatorial battles arranged by Commodus. Maximus soon wins Rome's approval -- to the point where he begins to become more popular among the people than Commodus -- and begins to plan his revenge...

Commodus wasn't as bad in real life as he was in either this film or The Fall of the Roman Empire, but he still wasn't the sort of [[SarcasmMode monarch you'd take home to mother]] - he thought he was the reincarnation of Hercules, fought as a gladiator in the arena, and is best-known for ending the "Five Good Emperors" streak. He renamed [[{{Egopolis}} Rome]], and the Romans themselves ''after himself''. Also, he ordered one of his slaves to be burned alive for making his bath too cold. Yikes. He'd spent most of his reign just doing whatever he fancied, and having a grand old time -- it wasn't until there were several attempts on his life (one involving his sister) that he really kicked into gear and became a tyrannical dictator.
