|Galba||The Year of the Four Emperors, 69 AD, was a year of the Roman Empire in which four emperors ruled in succession: Galba, Otho, Vitellius, and Vespasian.|
On June 9, 68 AD, Nero was tried in absentia and condemned to death. He met death at his own hand, thereby attaining the distinction of being the first Roman Emperor to commit suicide. The four most influential generals in the Empire successively vied for the imperial power.
|Vitellius||Vespasian was legate of Legio II Augusta during the Roman invasion of Britain in 43 and subjugated Judaea during the Jewish rebellion of 66.|
Vespasian brought stability and after his death in 79, he was succeeded by his eldest son Titus, thus becoming the first Roman emperor to be directly succeeded by his own natural son.
