The Julio-Claudian and Flavian Caesars of Rome

Most of the first 12 emperors of the Roman Empire fall into two dynasties: the five Julio-Claudians (27 BCE–68 CE, including Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, and Nero) and the three Flavians (69–79 CE, Vespasian, Titus, and Domitian).

Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Galba, Otho, Vitellius, Vespasian, Titus and Domitian are generally regarded as “The twelve Caesars”. The Twelve Caesars are also regarded as a group because the historian Suetonius wrote biographies for these twelve and no more.
