Historical background




Caesar from 139, wearing the consulship for 140, Marc Aurèle receives tribunician power in 147 and succeeds Antonin in 161. His personal reign is marked by the Parthian war (162-165). After the death of Lucius Verus in 169, he had to face the Germanic invasions and the plague which ravaged the Empire. Marcus Aurelius associates his son Commodus with the Empire from 175 and dies of the plague in 180 in Vienna.
