Summary

Germanikus

It is the 3rd century A.D. A lazy swamp-Germanian named Hermann finds himself suddenly captured by Roman slave hunters. Dragged off to Rome, he is sold to Tusnelda. An ex-Germanian herself, she is the rich proprietress of a training school for gladiators. She mistakenly sees in Hermann the new star in the colosseum, and a likely husband for herself. Stressed by Tusnelda`s womanly advances, Hermann, now re-named by Tusnelda as "Germanikus", flees from his captor, but lands in the imperial court in a very risky job: he′s the official Royal Taster for the Emperor. When the Emperor "mysteriously" dies, Germanikus is the prime suspect. Once again on the run, this time he is caught and condemned to certain death - in the colosseum! With the help of a slave-girl named Saba, he wins in single combat with a tiger, is declared the new Emperor against his will, and as such, brings about the fall of the Roman Empire!

He has to flee again, now back home to mama! But with Saba as his empress, a whole new set of prospects awaits him in Germania ...
