Empire is a completely free WordPress blog theme, simple enough to look at, but it packs enough features to keep any blogger happy. This simple, modern theme is completely free, it boasts several layout choices and much more.
Empire is a free, responsive theme for your WordPress blog created by Templified. It allows your blog to adapt and adjust to the device your viewers are using – whether it is a smart phone, a tablet, or a laptop.
