Otho - Roman Emperor

"Contradiction"

When Galba had proved to be an incompetent ruler, Marcus Salvius Otho brought legions from the Rhine and had Galba murdered and seized the throne in 69 AD. After only four months of being Emperor he proved also incompetent. Suetonius spoke of Otho's "contradictory nature." That year he was defeated by the Roman general Vitellius, Otho committed suicide and Vitellius took the throne.
