Res gestae

“Res gestae” is a Latin term that means “things done” or “deeds accomplished.” In legal contexts, it refers to a statement or document that lists the achievements or actions accomplished during one’s life or tenure in a particular position. In historical contexts, it can refer to the official acts or accomplishments of a ruler, leader, or organization, often recorded for posterity. One famous example is the “Res Gestae Divi Augusti,” or “The Deeds of the Divine Augustus,” an inscription that details the achievements of the Roman Emperor Augustus.
