General Lusius Quietus And His Nubian Cavalry Unit

Lusius Quietus was the son of a Mauretanian chieftain,  who’s loyalty to Roman emperor Caligula during a (40 A .D.) uprising in northern Morocco, earned his family a gift of Roman citizenship in Italy.  In Italy the young Lusius joined the Roman army and was recognized and rewarded with an equestrian rank by emperor Domitian, but he was latter discharged for insubordination .
Upon emperor Trajan assuming the royal  throne, Lusius was reinstated into the legions and made commander of an auxiliary cavalry unit,  which distinguished it self in Rome’s victorious wars with Dacia in (101-102 A.D. and  (105- 106 A.D.) present day, Romania.  They’re gallantry in those wars will forever be Immortalize on Trajan’s Column, completed in 113 A.D. in Rome Italy.  His later exploits in service to Rome earned him the titles of senator, and governor.  Historians have theorized that the new Roman emperor Hadrian, had Quietus assassinated in ( 118 A.D.) out of jealousy for his popularity amongst  the Roman citizens and army.
