After Carico’s death in 803 AVC (50CE) his successor, Vaspasivs assumed a peaceful and quiet rule. Plans had been made by Carico to invade Britannia but Vaspasianvs’ already dim interest in the campaign was halted indefinitely when a considerable revolt in Ivdea occurred in 819 AVC (66CE). It was speculated that had Carico not made his revisions to the governing systems, there would have been far more people disgruntled enough to join in. The revolt was also made quick work of by fastly deployed Legions by rail and by primitive bombus alesalitis(bombers). Another, smaller general revolt in Gallia 823 AUC (70CE) was also put down in less than a year. The use of these bomber aircraft, first used by Carico in Ægyptian occupied Greece were indispensable, though the passenger aerocraft fell into disuse, its design coming from Carico himself and they being ahead of their time and out of most people's price range. The old aerocraft simply could not be competently maintained. The current bombus alesalitis with their 2 propellers were powered by twisted and cranked sinues, allowing up to 20 minutes of flight. Their rickety wood and fabric construction made them very fragile but in the air, nearly invincible against a few arrows, as long as they missed the pilot.

By the end of Vaspasianus’ rule in 832(79), bombus alesalitis were supported with some iron supports and had 6 propellers, carrying 3 people. Each propeller was unsynchronized so that only one stopped at a time. One person ran between the 6, re-cranking each, giving the bomber a flight time of over an hour and a half. Another was a pilot, the other released the bombs and sometimes helped the cranker. Airstrips were built near many garrisons, most having at least 2 bombus alesalitis.

Vaspasianvs also created a national school for scribes, each major city had one, the costs were usually reasonable, and each school was standardized to the same criterion. This Vaspasianvs Imperial School would raise the Empire’s overall literacy rate from 14 to 32%. This education of the masses would put Rome on the path of survival in the future.

Vaspasianus’ son Titvs took over at his death in 832(79) and also ruled pretty well. Vesvvivs erupted and Rome caught fire in the same year. He helped the refugees get their lives back to normal through the funding of public works, reconstruction, and handouts. Worrying about future poor after his death and about how unlikely it would be other emperors would consider helping the masses, Titvs formed the Imperial Welfare System. Titvs died very questionably in 834(81).

Domitian succeeded his elder brother and was an uninspired ruler. He saw through the completion of Rome's reconstruction from the fire but had most of Titvs' expansion plans for other cities cancelled; stating that the economy was in poor shape after his father and brother's frivolous construction projects and programmes. It was a self-fulfilling statement, he didn’t know much about economics and his further policies created the recession he had thought already existed. To try and better his image, he revived the Capitoline Games in 839(86). These were held in a different province every 4 years. They included many sports similar to the ancient Greek Olympic games of a footrace, wrestling, and javelin. The Capitoline Games also had horse races, musicals, swimming, and weight lifting; gladiators were the highlight. All were challenging competitions. This was the end of Domitian's favourable attributes. He proved to be cruel and his wrath easily incurred. He killed a lot of Jews and several senators on the bases of conspiracies against both himself and the state. Following his contemplation of agreeing to a shameful peace after a fumbled war with the Dacians (842-3(89-90)) the Prætorian Guard assassinated him for the good of the Empire. The senators themselves would have done it in less than 4 years left to themselves.

Nerva of the Senate was then elected Cæsar. He was 61 years old, the oldest emperor at the start yet. He did a good job a fixing Domitian's errors, releasing several of the falsely accused, and readmitted wrongly exiled people. He funded the embellishment of old cities and the founding of new ones to deal with the Empire's growth due to the continuation of Carico's pro-population policies. He was lucky that the Prætorians had lost their temper with Domitian so quickly, otherwise, they probably would have turned against Nerva. He had no children but adopted the popular general Traianvs. It was amiable he did so much in just 8 years, he had a good public image. He died of chronic fevers in 852(99). Had his rule been tumultuous, he probably would have died earlier.
