Trajan (Latin: Imperator Caesar Nerva Traianus Divi Nerva fili Augustus; 18 September 53 " 9 August 117 AD) was a Roman Emperor from 98 AD until his death. Officially declared by the senate as optimus princeps ("the best emperor"), Trajan is remembered as a successful soldier-emperor who presided over the greatest military expansion in Roman history, leading the empire to attain its maximum territorial extent by the time of his death. He is also known for his philanthropic rule, overseeing extensive public building programs and implementing social welfare policies, which earned him his enduring reputation as the second of the Five Good Emperors who presided over an era of peace and prosperity in the Mediterranean world.

Born into a non-patrician family of Italian origin in the province of Hispania Baetica, Trajan rose to prominence during the reign of emperor Domitian. Serving as a legatus legionis in Hispania Tarraconensis, in 89 Trajan supported Domitian against a revolt on the Rhine led by Antonius Saturninus. In September 96, Domitian was succeeded by Marcus Cocceius Nerva, an old and childless senator who proved to be unpopular with the army. After a brief and tumultuous year in power, a revolt by members of the Praetorian Guard compelled him to adopt the more popular Trajan as his heir and successor. Nerva died on 27 January 98, and was succeeded by his adopted son without incident.

As a civilian administrator, Trajan is best known for his extensive public building program which reshaped the city of Rome and left multiple enduring landmarks such as Trajan's Forum, Trajan's Market and Trajan's Column. Early in his reign, he annexed the Nabataean kingdom, creating the province of Arabia Petraea. His conquest of Dacia enriched the empire greatly " the new province possessed many valuable gold mines.

His war against the Parthian Empire ended with the attack of the capital Ctesiphon and the annexation of Armenia and Mesopotamia. His campaigns expanded the Roman Empire to its greatest territorial extent. In late 117, while sailing back to Rome, Trajan fell ill and died of a stroke in the city of Selinus. He was deified by the Senate and his ashes were laid to rest under Trajan's Column. He was succeeded by his adopted son Hadrian.

As an emperor, Trajan's reputation has endured " he is one of the few rulers whose reputation has survived nineteen centuries. Every new emperor after him was honored by the Senate with the wish felicior Augusto, melior Traiano ("[be] luckier than Augustus and better than Trajan"). Among medieval Christian theologians, Trajan was considered a virtuous pagan, while the 18th-century historian Edward Gibbon popularized the notion of the Five Good Emperors, of which Trajan was the second.

To understand the question we need to understand about roman empire, I know little bit about it.

AUGUSTUS -1st emperor of the Roman empire.

Month of August is named after Augustus, August have 31 days because AUGUSTUS wanted his month to match the length of Julius Caesar's July.

JULIUS CEASAR-Dictator of Roman Empire.

Augustus was the father of Tiberius.

TIBERIUS- 2nd emperor of roman empire son.

Of Augustus's wife LIVIA by a previous marriage;

Adopted son of Augustus.

The GOSPELS (A gospel is an account that describes the life of Jesus of Nazareth) mention that during TIBERIUS reign, THE JESUS OF NAZARETH (JESUS CHRIST) Preached and was executed by Pontius Pilate (preety brutal Roman governor).

NERO-5th Roman Emperor.

Brutus- Senator of the Roman Empire.

Senator "A member of a Senate.

Senate- Assembly possessing high legislative Powers.

Q) We hear of two envoys being sent to the Roman kings, one in 27-28 AD to the court of Augustus and the other in 110-20 AD to the court of.

Now let us know about Envoy sent to the court of Augustus-.

ROMAN vs DACIA.

DACIA "In ancient geography, especially in Roman sources, Dacia was the land inhabited by the Dacians or Getae as they were known by the Greeks"a branch of the Thracians (were a group of Indo-European tribes) north of the Haemus range (mountains).

BUREBISTA-Greatest Dacia king ruled b/w 82 BC.

&44 B. C, Dacia represented a threat for the Roman Empire.

Augustus came into conflict with Dacia.

Dacia sent envoys offering their support against Mark Antony in exchange for requests, Augustus rejected the offer & Dacia gave their support to Antony.

MARK ANTONY-Roman politician & general.

Important supporter & loyal friend of his mother's cousin Julius Caesar.

In 33 B. C, there were disagreements b/w Antony & OCTAVIAN (known as AUGUSTUS after 27 B.C) errupted into civil war, ANTONY defeated by OCTAVIAN. His career and defeat are significant in Rome's transformation from republic to empire.

TRAJAN-13th Roman emperor.

First Battle of Tapae, between Domitian (12th emperor of Roman empire) and Dacia in 87.

Second Battle of Tapae, between Trajan and Decebal (brave king of Dacia) in 101.

Trajan was most conspicuous for his justice, bravery & simplicity & there were good causes for DECEBALUS to worry.

Therefore he sent envoys before defeat.
