People - Ancient Rome: Otho
Marcus Salvius Otho also called Marcus Salvius Otho Caesar Augustus, he was Roman Emperor from 15 January to 16 April 69.

Otho in Roman Biography O'tho, [Fr. Othon, o't6.N',] (Marcus Salvius,) Emperor of Rome, born about 32 a.d., was descended from a patrician family. He was for a time an intimate associate of Nero, until the attachment of the latter for Poppaea, Otho's wife, caused a rupture between them. He supported Galba in his revolt against Nero, in 68 A.D., but, disappointed that the former did not appoint him his successor, he conspired with the guards, took the life of Galba, and assumed the supreme power. He soon after marched against Caecina, a general of Vitellius, who had been proclaimed emperor by the legions in Germany. His army having been totally defeated near Bebriacum, Otho destroyed himself in April, 69 A.D., and was succeeded by Vitellius. Otho was a man of profligate character. See Plutarch, "Life of Otho;" Mrrivai.e, "The Romans under the Empire :" Suetonius, "Otho;" W. E. Weber, "Kaiser M. Salvius Otho," 1815 ; " Nouvelle Biographie Gene>ale."

Otho in Wikipedia Marcus Salvius Otho (28 April 32[1] 16 April 69), also called Marcus Salvius Otho Caesar Augustus,[2] was Roman Emperor for three months, from 15 January to 16 April 69. He was the second emperor of the Year of the four emperors. Birth and lineage Otho belonged to an ancient and noble Etruscan family, descended from the princes of Etruria and settled at Ferentinum (modern Ferento, near Viterbo) in Etruria. His paternal grandfather, Marcus Salvius Otho, whose father was a Roman knight but whose mother was of lowly origin and perhaps not even free-born, was raised in Livia's household and rose to senatorial rank through her influence, although he did not advance beyond the rank of praetor. His father was Lucius Otho...

Otho, M. Salvius in Harpers Dictionary A Roman emperor from Jan. 15 to April 16, A.D. 69, who was born in 32. He was one of the companions of Nero in his debaucheries; but when the emperor took possession of his wife, the beautiful but profligate Poppaea Sabina, Otho was sent as governor to Lusitania, which he administered with credit during the last ten years of Nero's life. Otho attached himself to Galba, when he revolted against Nero, in the hope of being adopted by him, and succeeding to the Empire. But when Galba adopted L. Piso, on the tenth of January, 69, Otho formed a conspiracy against Galba, and was proclaimed emperor by the soldiers at Rome, who put Galba to death. Meantime, Vitellius had been proclaimed emperor at Cologne by the German troops on the third of January. When this news reached Otho, he marched into the north of Italy to oppose the generals of Vitellius. He at first won several victories over Caecina, the general of Vitellius, but his army was defeated by Caecina and Valens in a decisive battle near Bedriacum, whereupon he put an end to his own life at Brixellum, in the thirty-seventh year of his age. His life is given by Suetonius and Plutarch.
