About Commodus, Roman Emperor

Commodus (Latin: Marcus Aurelius Commodus Antoninus Augustus 31 August 161 – 31 December 192), was Roman Emperor from 180 to 192. He also ruled as co-emperor with his father Marcus Aurelius from 177 until his father's death in 180.

His accession as emperor was the first time a son had succeeded his father since Titus succeeded Vespasian in 79. Commodus was the first (and up until 337 the only) emperor "born in the purple"; i.e., born during his father's reign.

Commodus was assassinated in 192.

Hijo de Marco Aurelio y último de los Antoninos, Cómodo (180-192) fue el primer emperador romano desde Domiciano que accedió al trono por nacimiento, pues entretanto todos lo hicieron por adopción. Enfrentado al ejército tras la paz con los marcomanos, a la plebe por la escasez de grano y al senado a causa de una conspiración tempranamente descubierta, terminó convirtiéndose en un déspota extravagante. Fue asesinado en el año 192 DC. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodus
