Augustulus, or Romulus Momyllus Augustus, the last of the Roman emperors of the West, was the son of Orestes, a general in Gaul, who deposed Julius Nepos, and crowned Augustulus at Ravenna in 475 A.D. Next year Odoacer killed Orestes and dethroned the young prince, allowing him, however, to retire into Campania with a pension of 6,000 pieces of gold. His own subjects in derision added the diminutive suffix to his name.
