Sucks this hasn't been updated in so long. I was hoping to see Octavian..oops I mean Harry *wink wink* Come in and avenge his Godfather's inevitable murder, before creating the greatest empire since the Roman Empire.

What a great story that's unfortunately being abandoned!
Anyway, I think your characters map to the following historical counterparts:
Sirius - Caesar
Frank Longbottom - Pompey
Remus - Mark Anthony
Dumbledore - Cicero
Harry - Octavian
Ginny - Livia Drusilla
Nymphodora Tonks - Octavia
Draco - Brutus
Alastor Moody - Crassus
Bill Weasley - Lepidus
Cedric - Tiberius Claudius Nero
Narcissa - Sevillia

Dang Harry and Sirius forgot something when they were yelling at Kreacher. Like ORDER/DEMAND Kreacher to hand over every single letter he took and give them back to them, and if hes destroyed them REALLY punish him them. *lol*

By far one of the best fics I've ever read. The characters and their growth is brilliant. I love the politics and representation of war. Brilliant. Thank you for this gem of a story.

Hm. Pity this ceased being updated before Octavius Potter could show his nasty side in the period between his Godfather's murder and the establishment of the principate.

It's a good story. A lot of conflict, a lot of politics. I like it.
You might want to check out some of DisobedienceWriter's works. The Heir of Magic and The Birth of Evil come to mind, as well as Knowledge is Useful, but Power is Power. And Guerilla Potter. Who am I kidding I like all his stories. The politics aren't as well-written as yours, but I think you'll enjoy them.

Holy cupcakes this was awesome! Though I'm rather curious to see who will be the Brutus to Sirius's Caesar...

i know the thing i'm about to ask is quite difficult but could you write some everyday life of the common soldier perspectives. right now its mostly macro events and individual reactions to it which are great but i would like to see them worked out in more detail. though i totally get why you dont, to do so would get your story bogged down and never go anywhere but still some scraps would be nice.
i would also like some smarter reactions from sirius' enemies. the goblins defeat was mandatory to consolidate his power but some detail on how he did it would be nice like the runespoor ploy. same with the dread king great setup but nothing but a cliffnote almost.
your story is smart and shows great character development over time i just want to see some on the enemies side as well to keep the balance. even a dictator needs his enemies which is probably why you stopped writing, you lost your antagonists.
as a suggestion for new enemies have him in charge for a year or two and then have public support erode and muggle's demand more and more sparking resentment among the wizards. i'm not advocating muggle vs wizards war but that would create a breeding ground for recruits for the dread king bringing him back into the game.
also possible is having sirius be forced to abuse his power to protect his loved ones. like bill weasley did something stupid and he had to cover it up to protect his rep among his soldiers. secrecy and corruption like that breeds enemies.
also give the continent a voice, you never expounded on their power structure after sirius saved them from the goblins. he seems to be in control but a foreigner in charge always sits uneasy with the local populace.
there is also war fatigue from his own soldiers that might get fed up with him constantly keeping one war or another going. in short you can still create new ones if you need to.

great start to the story especially loved the subtle political battle. too many fics try to steamroll their way through the wizengamot if they have to by overwhelming show of force. which mostly includes blackmail or otherwise obtaining the votes or just bypassing them entirely.
they are too often painted as shortminded idiots who can never decide on anything without substance. to create the decision the author wants but you actually gave the factions well developed philosophies. where the reader can nod his head along as he reads rather than be just disgusted by the foolishness to make any actions of the mc more righteous.
hope to see many more chaps

One of my favourite fanfics. Hope to see this finished but I don't see that happening for some reason lol
The developing of characters is very good, though you only skimmed over Harry's apprenticeship and the circumstances behind it; I understand that there were bigger fish to fry though.
Hope to see some sort of update!
