Caligula was the son of Germanicus and Agrippina and was born 12 AD. He assumed the throne at age 25 upon the death of Tiberius, his adoptive grandfather. He would become well known for his mental instability and reign of terror his insanity caused from such a privileged position. He believed himself to be a living god. He was eventually murdered, dieing at the relatively young age of 29.  His excesses included trying and killing much of the Rome upperclass, seizing their wealth.  Eventually, everyone felt threatened and this probably led to his assassination.

GALBA:  
Too Much a Hard Ass to Survive  
68 to 69 AD

Historical Context: Galba was 72 years old and a Senator when he was saluted emperor immediately after Nero's demise.  He was well to do, having inherited 32 millions sesterii from Livia, mother of Tiberius.  Galba proved to be an ineffective emperor.  First, the Praetorian Guard (his body guards) were irritated because Galba failed to reward them for proclaiming him emperor.  Second, he named a successor that had no military experience, angering the Praetorian, and this offended Otho, who expected to succeed Galba.  Otho lead a revote within the Praetorian Guard against Galba, whom they murdered.

OTHO:  
Killed the Prior Emperor and then Himself 
69 AD

Historical Context: Otho was born in 32 AD to a distinguished Etruscan family.  He was ambitious and became a friend to Nero.  He gained Nero's trust and support by organizing Nero's debauches and may have played a role assisting Nero in the assassination of Agrippina (Nero's mother).  Otho married Poppaea and then lost her to Nero.  Thus, Otho was assigned a remote military post.  After Nero's death, Otho asserted himself against Galba.  His eventually captured and killed Galba and Otho became emperor.  However, Vitellius had the same aspirations and scored a stunning defeat against Otho's forces.  Distraught, Otho committed suicide, just three months after ascending to the purple.

Historical Context:  Titus Flavius Vespasianus, born in 41, was the elder son of Vespasian and Flavia Domitilla. He later served in Germany and Britain and commanded a legion in his father's Jewish campaign. When Vespasian left, Titus remained to carry on the war and captured Jerusalem in 70.  He proved himself an excellent leader.  Following the natural disasters of 79 and 80 AD, including the eruption of My.

DOMITIAN
Last of the 12 Caesars !!
81 to 96 AD

Historical Context: This coin was minted by the ROMAN EMPIRE in during the reign of DOMITIAN, 81-96 AD.  Titus Flavius Domitianus was the younger son of Vespasian (Titus was the older brother). At the premature death of Titus, Domitian rose to the throne. He seems to have been an able and effective administrator. However, history has been unkind to him. He did little to gain the affections of astrocrats in Rome, which may be he was not well perceived in history.  He is known for being paranoid, predicting many plots against him.  He was finally right, being killed by a close servant.

NERVA
First of the Adoptive Emperors
Beginning of Rome's GOLDEN ERA
96 to 98 AD

Historical Context:  This coin was minted by the ROMAN EMPIRE during the reign of NERVA, 96 to 98 AD. Nerva was a distinguish senator. He served important roles under Nero, Vespasian and Domitian. At the death of Domitian he was raised to throne but died of natural causes after a reign of only 1 1/2 years. Nerva made one of the most fortunate decisions of all time by deciding to select his successor based on merit. He adopted Trajan to succeed him. They are known as the adoptive emperors. This was the beginning of the Golden Era of Rome.
