What Is The 'My Roman Empire' Meme?

The "my Roman Empire" trend is directly inspired by the "How often do you think about the Roman Empire?" trend which went viral across social media throughout September. The trend had women asking their boyfriends how often they think about the Roman Empire. To the surprise and hilarity of many, the boys often admitted to thinking about the Roman Empire multiple times a week, or even multiple times a day.

In the middle of September, people who don't think about the Roman Empire so much decided to take the meme down a new path. They began posting images and videos to TikTok and X that represent something they find themselves consistently thinking about, whether it's a specific scene from a movie, a person or a moment in time.
