Titus (24th June A D 79 - 13th September A D 81)

Titus Flavius Vespansianus was the eldest son of Vespasian. During Nero’s reign he served as a military tribune in Britain and Germany. In AD 70 he captured Jerusalem and ended a Jewish revolt. His brief reign witnessed the eruption of Vesuvius, which destroyed Pompeii and Herculaneum in AD 79. The 'Amphitheatrum Flavium', or Colosseum, commenced by Vespasian in AD 71, was dedicated by Titus in AD 80.
