Vespasian was born in Falacrine, Ancient Roman, is Roman Emperor. Vespasian was the ninth emperor of Rome who founded the Flavian dynasty. Born in Rome to a relatively undistinguished family, Titus Flavius Caesar Vespasianus Augustus was the youngest son of his parents, most of whose early life was eclipsed by his elder brother’s achievements. Later, he served in the military for several years and subsequently became the legate of the second legion in the invasion of Britain in 43 AD. Upon achieving several other military successes, he rose in the senate to become consul and was appointed the proconsul of Africa, a decade later. Subsequently, Emperor Nero put him in charge of the subjugation of Judaea during the Jewish Revolt but when Nero committed suicide, Vespasian prepared his own bid for power. In the ‘Year of the Four Emperors’ during which the two emperors namely Galba and Otho perished in quick succession, the legions of Egypt, Judaea, and Syria voted for Vespasian, opposing Vitellius’ succession to the throne. After a major bloody battle between both the forces, Vespasian conquered Rome and Egypt and was declared Emperor by the Roman senate. During his ten-year reign, Vespasian worked towards restoring Rome's finances ruined during the civil war and reinstating discipline in the army after the civil wars. Upon his death, Vespasian became the first Roman Emperor to be directly succeeded by his own natural son, thus establishing the Flavian dynasty

Famous Quotes:

In his ninth consulship he had a slight illness in Campania, and returning at once to the city, he left for Cutiliaeº and the country about Reate, where he spent the summer every year. There, in addition to an increase in his illness, having contracted a bowel complaint by too free use of the cold waters, he nevertheless continued to perform his duties as emperor, even receiving embassies as he lay in bed. Taken on a sudden with such an attack of diarrhoea that he all but swooned, he said: "An emperor ought to die standing," and while he was struggling to get on his feet, he died in the arms of those who tried to help him, on the ninth day before the Kalends of July, at the age of sixty-nine years, seven months and seven days..
