For the Roman people themselves, the Imperial Reign was a time of peace (while Augustus served as monarch), and a time of horror during Caligula's rule. For the social classes, monarchy was a good thing....... it kept them from civil war. Claudius' rule was prosperous and stable. Thus, it may not have been seen as the most desireable form of government, but it was peaceful....... a nice benefit for the Romans living there!
