    There was a reason that armies were not permitted into Rome.

      The Praetorians had a nasty habit of assassinating any emperor they thought got too crazy, Caligula, or any emperor that refused to pay them, Galba.

      The Praetorian Guard was known for conspiracy, assassination, and other such items.  They killed emperors left and right.  Though oddly enough they were pretty good to the better rulers, ie they didn't kill them.
