(12/69-18/09/96) Titus Flavius Domitianus
Caesar under Vespasian (12/69-24/06/79)
Domitian received the title of Caesar, thus heir to the Empire, along with his brother Titus in December 69 but it was only present in Rome with his uncle Flavius Sabinus who perished in the burning of the Capitol. It is proclaimed "Princeps Iuventutis" (Prince of Youth), a title he retained even after the death of his father in 79. After his brother Titus September 13, 81, some say murdered at the instigation of Domitian himself, he became Emperor for a lamentable reign that eventually his assassination.
