Murphysboro Centuries, 5th secular

Julius Nepos, 474-475
- became emperor because he was married to the niece of the Eastern empress - struggled to reassert Roman authority, but wasn't successful - one of the more “important” events of his reign was the declaration of Euric, king of the Visigoths, that his kingdom in Gaul was a fully independent state (like the Vandals) and not a “federate” ally of Rome - was “deposed” by Orestes, the new Master of Soldiers
