Otho, one of the twelve caesars, was the second Roman emperor for three months only during 69AD, the ‘Year of the Four Emperors’. He was from an Etruscan family, initially a friend of Nero and governed the province of Lusitania, eventually allying himself with Galba, the governor of the neighbouring Hispania Tarraconensis, during the revolts of 68 AD. He accompanied Galba to Rome, and later revolted, murdering Galba after being passed over for the succession to the throne.
