Second Roman Emperor of the Flavian Dynasty
Titus Caesar Vespasian was the second Roman emperor of the Flavian dynasty. He succeeded his father Vespasian and he reigned for only 2 years, from his father’s death in AD 79 till his own death in 81 AD. He died of fever.
Before his reign, he was a military commander in chief and he ended the Jewish war in 69 AD. Titus was praised by ancient historiography as the ideal ruler, because of a good relationship between the Senate and the Emperor. As emperor, Titus is best known for completing the Colosseum and for helping with two disasters, the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD and a fire in Rome in 80 AD.
In 81 AD, he was succeeded by his younger brother Domitian.
