The final ruler in the “Year of the Four Emperors”

The Founder of the Flavian Dynasty, and the tenth of the Twelve Caesars, Emperor Vespasian ended a Civil War, and was the final ruler of the tumultuous Year of the Four Emperors. His tenure brought about a time of peace for 27 years.  He hailed from an equestrian family with political ties. 

As a military commander, he had immense success during the First Jewish-Roman War and in Britain. He was responsible for several important architectural projects, most notably the beginning of construction on the Roman Colosseum (also called the Flavian Amphitheater), as Vespasian had a love for gladiatorial games. 

Coins struck during his reign served as propaganda throughout the Empire, depicting images of military victory and peace. He died in 79 AD of intestinal illness after a long and successful career as Emperor.
