Otho Roman

Otho (Emperor 69AD-69AD)

Imperator Marcus Otho Caesar Augustus was born Marcus Salvius Otho on 28 April 32AD. He became 7th Emperor on the 15 January 69AD. He liked his own appearance and was often found looking at himself in the mirror before going to battle. He wore a wig that was said to look so real no-one noticed. He even wore face makeup.

69AD was the Year of the Four Emperors and Otho was the second; he committed suicide on 16 April 69AD aged 36 after reigning just 3 months. Some say he committed suicide to prevent an escalating civil war.
