The Grass Crown is the second historical novel in Colleen McCullough 's Masters of Rome series, published in 1991.

The novel opens shortly after the action of The First Man in Rome . Gaius Marius and Lucius Cornelius Sulla eat dinner together with their wives, and discuss the threat presented by Mithridates VI of Pontus and Tigranes II of Armenia.

Although these two powerful Eastern rulers would eventually declare war on Rome and slaughter thousands of Roman citizens, the plot of the novel centres on the Social War of 91 to 88 BC, a civil war which Rome fought against its mutinous Italian Allies after they were refused full Roman citizenship. (The lengthy section dealing with Marcus Livius Drusus ' attempt to secure them the citizenship, which ends in his tragic assassination, is one of the main turning points in the entire series.)
