To be honest, I'm not well-versed in Roman history, it's already too political for my taste. I chose gaius mainly for aesthetic reasons and because he despised the decadent elite. What do you like about hadrian?
I like Hadrian for his focus on internal affairs, creating and improving infrastructure, legal reforms, etc. He wanted to unite the Roman empire on cultural and legal bases rather than military strength alone.
