Titus.jpg (3451 bytes)
Titus Flavius Vespasianus
Emperor 79 - 81
Titus [b. 41] nearly died from poison administered to his friend Britannicus,   son of Claudius. He was military tribune and quaestor in 65, then legion commander in the Judaean campaign, which he took over upon Vespasian's accession. After his joint triumph with Vespasian, Titus became Caesar and effective co-emperor. His own reign was distinguished by liberality, great natural disasters and the dedication of the Colosseum. On the last day of the opening spectacles, Titus broke down, wept in public, and was then inactive until his death the following year, which apparently resulted from some incurable disease.
