Encyclopedia > Flavian dynasty

The Flavian dynasty was a series of three Roman Emperors who ruled from 69, the "Year of the Four Emperors", to 96, when the last member was assassinated.

Although the period of the Flavians was relatively short, the name proved popular, and was a common component of Roman names for generations thereafter.
