Didius Julianus (via furia_krucha)
Marcus Severus Didius Julianus (133 or 137–193) was Roman Emperor (28 March 193-1 June 193). He ascended the throne after buying it from the Praetorian Guard, who had assassinated his predecessor Pertinax. This incited the Roman Civil War of 193–197. Julianus was ousted and sentenced to death by his successor, Septimius Severus.
