One of Rome's least impressive emperors, Otho had lived among the ruling class before he was made governor of faraway Lusitania (mod. Portugal) so the emperor Nero could have his wife, Poppaea, to himself. When Galba's revolt broke in neighboring Spain, Otho joined him, hoping to be named successor. But Galba had no such plan, so Otho had Galba murdered in public view. Otho was not up to the job, however, and he reigned only three months before committing suicide after his legions were defeated by those of his rival Vitellius.
