51 - 96
Roman Emperor
Domitian, the son of Vespasian, became emperor in A.D. 81.
He campaigned in Britain up to Scotland and secured the empires frontiers with the construction of palisades.

An able but autocratic ruler, he thoroughly alienated the ruling class by his tyrannical ways.

Becoming paranoid about opposition after the armed revolt of Saturninus, the Governor of Upper Germany (89), Domitian unleashed a reign of terror in Rome, leading to a palace revolt and his own assassination.
