Vespasian ruled for 10 years. His family was in the equestrian class, and that class was inferior to the patriarchs. Therefore, they had to get public offices by military accomplishments. When Vespasian was old enough, he went to the military. In the army, he worked from the lowest position to the highest position. He even became a legate! Vespasian Became consul in 51 AD, and later he was appointed as governor of parts of Africa. In 66 AD, the Jews revolted, and Vespasian was put in charge of the army. Vespasian was successful in stopping the rebellion of the Jews, thus his public position was made even higher than before. When he was fighting the Jews, Vitellius was reigning. The Senate did not like Vitellius, and so when Vitellius was reigning, the Senate appointed Vespasian as the next ruler. In 69 AD, Vespasian returned to Rome, and then defeated Vitellius to become the next emperor. During Vespasian's reign for 10 years, he was remembered as one of the better emperors. Vespasian furthered the empires hold over Britain, and also made improvements to the Roman Army and City. During Vespasian's reign, he sent Titus, his son, to take over Judea; they were rebelling once more. In his life, he survived several conspiracies, and put down many uprisings and revolts.Vespasian also began the Flavian Amphitheatre, which is also known as the Colosseum. In 79 AD, Vespasian died of an infection.
Titus ruled for 2-3 years. When Titus was sent out by his father, Vespasian to stop Judea from rebelling, Titus had a hard time. He fought the Jews for a long time, and finally won in 70 AD. This brought the Jewish nation to an end for a long time. The great temple was burned, and almost 1.2 million Jews were killed or captured.After Vespasian died in 79 AD, Titus took over. It is important to note that Vespasian's own son succeeded him. For most of the the succeeder was a grandson or adopted son. Titus was a very good ruler, and was known for his generosity. He helped the Roman citizens recover from a big eruption in Pompeii made by Mt. Vesuvius, and also helped them revive from a three day fire that happened in 80 AD. Titus also built several elaborate structures. After reigning for 2-3 years, Titus died of a fever.
Next in line was his brother, Domitian, who ruled for 15 years. Domitian strengthened Rome's economy, and also furthered the border defences. He was very popular with the people and the army, but to the Senate, he was a tyrant. Thus, the Senate assassinated him.
These three rulers ruled for a long time, and helped Rome recover from their former declination.
