Roman General: Gnaeus Domitius Corbulo

Roman general of the 1st century AD. In 47, while governor of Lower Germany and after a successful expedition against the Frisii, he was ordered by Claudius to withdraw behind the Rhine.

Between 58 and 63 Corbulo conducted a series of brilliant campaigns against the Parthians, but four years later he was summoned to Greece by Nero and ordered to commit suicide on the grounds that he was guilty of conspiracy.
