Emperor Titus Imperial Roman Coins

Titus Flavius Vespasianus born in 39 he ruled from 79 to 81. He was best known for defeating the Jewish rebellion in 70 and his public building program during the term of his leadership. During his rule there were two major disasters, the first being the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 and the great fire of Rome in 80. During these two unfortunate periods he was seen as a generous and giving ruler who did his best to relive the suffering of his people.

He was the eldest son of the previous emperor, his father Vespasian and began his military career at the age of 22 traveling to Britannia and Germania. At the age of 25 he returned to Rome to marry the daughter of a former commander, she unfortunately died a year later and Titus married again this time producing a daughter. He later divorced and never remarried again although during his military career had an affair with a woman named Bernice who was frowned upon as she was compared to a new Cleopatra.

During his reign he stopped treason trials and punished public informants and also completed construction of the Colusseum. In 79 he died of a fever or of suspected poisoning by his brother who would eventually take over as emperor.
