Where did you hear the line “My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions and loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next”?
A is the answer to this question. If you are a movie buff, you will have no trouble answering this question. This is an epic film that was shown in the year 2000. It has almost been two decades since this was shown, but people are still familiar with the famous line that Russell Crowe said in the movie.
This is a movie that is set in Roman times, so it appeals to a lot of people who love history and some action. Russell Crowe here is the gladiator who the king favored to take over his throne. The problem is, the king has a son who is not too happy about being passed over in favor of another person outside their family line to become king possibly.

The answer to this is A. This line has become very famous when Russell Crowe said these words in the movie. If in case you are still curious about this character, Meridius is a Hispano-Roman. He was forced to become a slave but he managed to get the favor of Aurelius.
Some people say that this character may have been based on another real person who also lived during this time. It may have some similarities with Magnus Maximus. Details about him can be found when you check out the ancient history. The real Magnus Maximus was born into a noble family. He was part of a military family which explains why he was also raised to become a soldier.
