Coins from Adoptive Emperors
Following the murder of Domitian, the elder statesman Nerva found himself crowned emperor. His brief reign - 96-98 AD - was marred by financial difficulties and the question of succession. Following a palace revolt in 97 AD, he was forced to adopt an heir - and chose the young and popular general Trajan.

This ensured a peaceful transition of power, and founded a dynasty of adopted emperors which would rule until Commodus' murder in 192 AD. This was a period of great stability and splendour, during which the Empire reached its peak land mass area and population - almost 70 million people. Includes the year of the five emperors (193 AD).
