Nerva Emperor of the Roman Empire from 96 to 98.
Marcus Cocceius Nerva Caesar Augustus was Roman Emperor from 96 to 98.

On 18 September 96, Domitian was assassinated in a palace conspiracy involving members of the Praetorian Guard and several of his freedmen. On the same day, Nerva was declared emperor by the Roman Senate. He became Emperor at the age of sixty-five, after a lifetime of imperial service under Nero and the rulers of the Flavian dynasty.

Nerva's brief reign was marred by financial difficulties and his inability to assert his authority over the Roman army. After barely fifteen months in office, Nerva died of natural causes on 27 January 98. Upon his death he was succeeded and deified by Trajan, his adopted heir.

Domitian was assassinated on September 18th, 96 AD in a conspiracy by court officials. The Senate installed Nerva on the same day, mere hours later, and there is debate whether or not he was in on the plot. A damnatio memoriae (condemnation of memory) was passed on Domitian; his coins and statues were melted, his arches were torn down and his name was erased from all public records. Nerva had a short reign of fifteen months during which he tried his best to gain the support of the citizens and the soldiers, but died of natural causes at the age of 67, however, not before adopting popular military commander Marcus Ulpius Traianus who we know as "Trajan" to succeed him. Nerva was deified by the Senate and his ashes were laid to rest in the Mausoleum of Augustus.
