T. Flavius Domitianus was the younger son of Vespasian and Flavia Domitilla and was born in Rome in A.D. 51. During the reigns of his father and brother Domitian was kept very much in the background, but on the death of Titus his succession w as not disputed. At first he showed great promise, but he w as very unpopular with the senatorial nobility and this resulted in numerous plots and conspiracies. Domitian, who was suspicious by nature, reacted violently, and the last years of his reign were ones of terror and oppression. He was eventually murdered on September 18th, 96 A.D., as the result of a palace plot involving his wife, Domitia, his chamberlain and the Praetorian prefect. - (FJ.5062)
