M. Claudius Tacitus
Emperor 275-276

275-276
After the assassination of Aurelian  his horrified army wanted nothing to do with the conspirators, and applied to the Senate for a new emperor. After a six week interregnum Tacitus, aged seventy-five, assumed the purple and joined the army in Thrace, repelling a Gothic invasion. Tacitus died, due to natural causes or possibly assassination, after a reign of only six months. His half-brother Florian was proclaimed emperor by the Senate and accepted in the western provinces, but the eastern legions acclaimed Probus, and Florian was assassinated on campaign after a reign of only 88 days.
