With the death of emperor Marcus Aurelius, the Roman Empire is thrown into chaos.

When the emperor’s corrupt son Commudus instead declares himself emperor, Maximus is betrayed and is set to be executed and his family killed. He escapes, but is captured by slave traders and is forced to become a gladiator. Maximus must fight to the death alongside other slaves for the amusement of paying audiences. Known as “The Spaniard”, Maximus’ battle skills serve him well and he becomes one of the most famous and admired men to fight in the Colosseum.
