Quintillus (Latin: Marcus Aurelius Claudius Quintillus Augustus;[1][2] c. 212 – April 270) was Roman Emperor for a few months [emphasis mine] in 270.

i’m not saying #goals but #goals

The few records of Quintillus’ reign are contradictory. They disagree on the length of his reign, variously reported to have lasted as few as 17 days and as many as 177 days (about six months).

Surviving Roman records considered Quintillus a moderate and capable Emperor.

OK but how 

i’m pretty sure i could be capable for 17 days straight 

I’m pretty sure I *couldn’t* be capable for 17 days straight…

look, if you told me “you are going to be emperor for 17 days and then you are going to be assassinated by Praetorians or whatever, keep it together” I could definitely fake being a good and noble emperor for that long
