Trajan (25th January AD 98 - 8/9 August AD 117)

Marcus Ulpius Traianus held the rank of legionary commander in AD 88-89, and was involved in suppressing a German revolt in AD 91. He became Rome's thirteenth emperor in AD 97 and commemorated the annexation of the kingdom of Dacia by erecting the famous Column of Trajan, dedicated in AD 113. Trajan also gave attention to the east where he created a new province of Arabia.
