Coin of the Roman Empire placed between AD 98-117. Trajan rv Concordia std. Marcus Ulpius Traianus (September 18, 53 - August 8, 117) was born into a non-patrician family in modern-day Spain, but over the course of his life, he achieved greater and greater power. He would become the only Spanish Emperor of Rome. Trajan is one of the most highly-regarded Roman Emperors in history, being second in 18th-century historian Edward Gibbon's list of "Five Good Emperors." His impact on Rome was seen everywhere in daily life, and still can be seen to this day. As a civilian administrator, Trajan is best known for his extensive public building program, which reshaped the city with such magnificent constructions as Trajan's Forum, Trajan's Market, and the famous Trajan's Column. However, Trajan's forte was his military prowess. His rise began under the reign of the Roman emperor Domitian, for whom he served as a general in the Roman army. He was a great success as a general, dealing mainly with revolts along the German frontier. After annexing various other smaller kingdoms, Trajan launched his final campaign against Parthia (in modern-day Iran) in 113. In 116, he expanded the Roman Empire to its farthest extent in its history. However, while returning back to Rome in 117, Trajan suffered a stroke and died en route. He was deified by the Senate, and his ashes were laid to rest under Trajan's Column. The Emperor Trajan had a great impact on not only Rome, but also the entire world. He was a powerful ally to his friends, but a deadly enemy to those that opposed him.
