Birth: Dec. 30, 39, Italy
Death: Sep. 13, 81

Roman Emperor. He is known for the relieving the victims of the eruption of Mount Versuvius and the destruction of the Temple of Solomon. He was born into a relatively poor family in 39 AD, but grew up in court circles. He began his career as a military tribune in Germany and Britain in 61 AD, before serving as an agent and negotiator in the Jewish war. In 70 AD, after a long seige, he captured the city of Jerusalem and oversaw the destruction of the Temple of Solomon. Following the murder of Galba he helped launch Vespasian's bid for power, and was selected as his heir early in the new reign. He was consul with the Emperor seven times, and was also made a tribune and commander of the Praetorian Guard. He used this last position to remove his enemies, and often forged incriminating letters to secure convictions. He succeeded Vespasian as Emperor in 79 AD, and two months after he came to power the towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum were destroyed in the eruption of Versuvius. He ordered disaster relief for the area and visited the scene personally. He also rebuilt parts of Rome that were destroyed in a fire the following year, and put on games to improve public morale. His biggest military campaigns were his attempted invasion of Scotland and the suppression of a rebellion in Asia Minor. He died suddenly, age 42, in 81 AD, probably of malaria, and was deified by his successor Domitian. He was buried in the Mausoleum of Augustus, but his body was later moved to the temple of the Flavian family. (bio by: js)
