Yeah I was about to say...
Gladiators were slaves bro
Gladiators were also product sell outs. Endorsed stuff and had their images used and printed out on stuff
Did the ancient Romans care about computers or the internet? If not, why do we consider them important?
Then the romans should have just given them a scholarship and all would be OK.
Too many people get their history from hollywood. Gladiators were not slaves, slaves would sometimes fight or be killed but they were not gladiators. And gladiator fights were not always to the death.
Not all were slaves, but many were. Depends what period of time we are talking about. Early on they almost all were, during the later years of the Empire is was more of a mix between slaves, criminals, and professional gladiators in the arena. It is true that slaves that fought well could earn their freedom.
In the Empires later years fights to the death weren't always required either.
Rome softened over time...and the fights virtually died out with the rise of Christianity.
