Octavius Eurasius Julius Augustus Optimator, also known as Augustus I, (Eurasian: Augustus Primus), was the second Emperor of Eurasia, and widely viewed as the first true Emperor. Taking power after the Assassination of Julius Eurasius in 27 BCE, he reigned until 14 CE and did much to strengthen the power of the Emperor, changing Eurasia from a consular dictatorship under Julius Eurasius to a true autocracy. Augustus did much to strengthen the defense of the Empire itself, and also signed the Edict of Almeria, which exempted Jews from Maiorist gods provided they pay a tax.

Augustus also did away with the measures Julius Eurasius had taken to make his consular dictatorship appear legal. Upon being appointed Consul by the Senate, he was granted dictatorial powers, which he then used to change existing law to make the position of Consul unelected and permanent, as well as vesting in himself ultimate legislative authority. He did not officially adopt the title of Imperator, a term which was first used by Tiberius I, his son. Augustus instead called himself Primus Consul, or "First Consul."
