Otho Begins His 3-Month Reign as Roman Emperor (69 CE)

Otho and Roman Emperor Nero were once friends. Then, Otho's wife became Nero's mistress, and Nero dispatched Otho to the remote province of Lusitania. After patiently governing the province for a decade, Otho joined a revolt against the emperor in 68 CE. Nero committed suicide, and Otho took over. However, a rival soon challenged him for the throne. Just three months into his reign, Otho killed himself, presumably to avoid a civil war in his empire. How did he bid farewell to his friends?

With an Etruscan lineage, this figure was the second emperor in a list of four that ruled Rome in the well-known The Year of Four Emperors, a very troubled moment in the Roman Politic Process during which four rulers rose to Roman's Power.
This particular guy has an interesting passage through a province considered by many people, back that time, the End of The Wolrd, Lusitania.
This province was ruled for 10 years by Otho what rose dramatically its importance amongst other provinces, and especially in the Iberian Peninsula.
Long after Roman's presence in that area, Lusitania would pass through varies process to finally become Portugal, the mother country of many countries, such as Brazil, my land.
