Mark antony, augustus, and marcus aemilius lepidus.- the second triumvirate was a legally codified executive that ruled starting in 43 b.c.e., putting the lid on the coffin of the roman republic. under the triple power of augustus, lepidus, and mark antony, the senate, the magistates, and the representative assemblies all dwindled in the weight they bore in governmental affairs-most likely as a direct result of the expanding roman territory. the institution of the triumvirate soon fractured, with antony forming an egyptian alliance with cleopatra that was defeated by the central roman forces upon which augustus became sole emperor in 27 b.c.e. lepidus had been dealt with a decade earlier when, accused of instigating revolt in sicily, he was forcibly exiled into the politically slack backwaters of the empire.
