Titus Flavius Vespasianus, also known as Titus, was a Roman Emperor, from the death of his father Vespasian in 79 AD until his own death in 81. Titus was the second emperor of the Flavian dynasty. Upon his death, he was succeeded by his younger brother Domitian.

Prior to becoming emperor, Titus was a successful general who crushed the Jewish Rebellion in 70. Although his reign was brief, he was considered a good emperor by Tacitus and other contemporary historians; in this role he is best-known for his public building program in Rome and for his generosity in relieving the suffering caused by two disasters, the Mount Vesuvius eruption of 79 and the fire of Rome of 80.
