Character description

Nerva: Roman Emperor 96-98. He gained the principate after Domitian was assassinated in 96. Called the first of the five "Good Emperors," he was already an old man and really didn't have time to do much except end the reign of terror before dying after sixteen months as Emperor. He adopted as his successor Trajan, who reorganized the Empire and (temporarily) extended its frontiers.
