Roman emperor from AD 69-79

During the reign of Claudius he was employed in a military capacity in Germany and in the Isle of Wight, and under Nero he was made Proconsul of Africa; and when the Jewish war broke out in AD 66 he was sent by Nero to the east. He continued the Jewish war during the struggles between Gaba, Otho and Vitellius, and towards the end of AD 69, on the death of Otho, he was proclaimed emperor at Alexandria, in Judea, and soon after (AD 70), on the death of Vitellius, at Rome. In AD 71 his son Titus, who had left to prosecute the Jewish war, returned to Rome, taking with him the spoils from the temple at Jerusalem, and celebrated with his father a triumph. The temple of Janus was closed, and Vespasian rebuilt the temple of Jupiter Capitolinus, which had been burnt during the troubles under Vitellius .
