Torrent description


69 A.D.: Rome Fucked-up _vXpc document

69 AD, so the ancient sources assure us, was one of the most chaotic, violent and
frightening periods in all Roman history: a time of assassinations and civil wars, of armies so out of control that
they had no qualms about occupying the city of Rome, and of ambitious men who seized power only to lose it,
one after another.
In 69 AD, we have a fresh look at this period, based on two considerations to which insufficient
attention has been paid in the past. First, that we need to unravel between the conflicting
accounts of Tacitus, Plutarch and Suetonius, our three main sources of information. And second, that the role of
the armies, was distinct from that of their commanders. The result is a remarkably
accurate and insightful narrative history, filled with colorful portraits of the leading participants and new insights
into the nature of the Roman military, 69 AD ranges from the suicide of Nero in June 68 to the triumph of
Vespasian in December 69. In between, three other emperors hold power. We meet Galba, old, tightfisted and
conservative, who was declared emperor in June 68 and assassinated in January 69. Otho, once Nero's boon
companion, who was responsible for murdering Galba, seized power in a coup in Rome in January 69 and, to
everybody's surprise, committed suicide three months later in a vain attempt to end the civil wars. Vitellius, as
indolent as he was extravagant, who was put forward by two ambitious lieutenants, recognized by the senate in
Rome once they heard of Otho's death in April, and cut down by Vespasian's partisans in the last days of
December. And then there is Vespasian, the candidate who looked least likely to succeed, but (according to
Tacitus) was still the first to be improved by becoming emperor.
A strikingly vivid account of ancient Rome, 69 AD is an original and compelling account of one of the best
known but perhaps least understood periods in all Roman history.
