of the caliphs who succeeded Mohammed, was a distant
relative and a devoted follower of the prophet. He
was invested with the caliphate in 644 A.D. He made
extensive conquests in Persia, Africa, and the island of
Cyprus, but he rendered himself unpopular by the favours
he lavished upon his relatives and friends. Through
the intrigues of Ayeshah, widow of the prophet, and a
number of disaffected nobles, a conspiracy was formed
against his life, and he perished by the hand of Mo-
hammed, son of the caliph Aboo-Bekr, in 656 A.D. Oth-

O'tho, [Fr. OTHON, o'tAN',] (MARCUS SALVIUS,) Em-
peror of Rome, born about 32 A.D., was descended from
a patrician family. He was for a time an intimate asso-
ciate of Nero, until the attachment of the latter for Pop-
paea, Otho's wife, caused a rupture between them. He
supported Galba in his revolt against Nero, in 68 A.D.,
but, disappointed that the former did not appoint him
his successor, he conspired with the guards, took the
life of Galba, and assumed the supreme power. He soon
after marched against Caecina, a general of Vitellius,
who had been proclaimed emperor by the legions in
Germany. His army having been totally defeated near
Bebriacum, Otho destroyed himself in April, 69 A.D.,
and was succeeded by Vitellius. Otho was a man of
profligate character.

under the Empire ;" SUBTONIUS, "Otho;" W. E. WEBKR, "Kaiser
M. Salvius Otho," 1815 ; " Nouvelle Biographic Generale."

O'tho [Fr. OTHON, o't6N' ; Ger. OT'TO] I_, THE
GREAT, son of Henry I., was born in 912 A.D., and suc-
ceeded his father as Emperor of Germany in 936. Soon
after his accession he was involved in a protracted war
with Boleslaw, Duke of Bohemia, whom he compelled to
acknowledge his supremacy, (950.) He repressed the
arrogance of the feudal barons, founded numerous bish-
oprics, and was zealous in his efforts to propagate Chris-
tianity. He defeated Harold, King of the Danes, whom
he obliged to be baptized and to become tributary to
Germany. In 951 he went to the assistance of the Ital-
ians against the usurper Berengarius, who had murdered
King Lotharius and imprisoned Adelaide, his queen,
whom Otho married the same year. He was crowned
emperor at Rome by Pope John XII. in 962, and as-
sumed the title of Caesar. The pope, having soon after
conspired with the enemies of Otho, was deposed by him,
and Leo VIII. elected in his place. In 972 his son,
Otho II., whom he had previously caused to be crowned
at Rome, married the princess Theophania, daughter of
Nicephorus Phocas, Emperor of the East Otho died
in 973. " He deserves," says Sismondi, " more than
Charlemagne the name of Great, because his reign had
a much more salutary influence on the nations whom he
subjected." Other historians, however, have expressed
a different opinion.

See VEHSE, " Leben Otto des Grossen," 1829; BOEHMBR, "Re
jesta Ottonum ;" " Nouvelle Biographic G^neYale."

Otho (Otto) U., Emperor of Germany, born in 955,
succeeded his father, Otho I., in 973. King Lothaire
of France, having renewed his pretensions to Lorraine,
was opposed and signally defeated by Otho. In 980 he
concluded a treaty by which the investiture of Lower
Lorraine was given to Charles, the brother of Lothaire,
on condition of his doing homage to the German em-
peror. He afterwards attempted the conquest of Cala-
Dria and Apulia, but was defeated in 982 by the combined
forces of the Greeks and Saracens. He died in 983,
and was succeeded by his son, Otho III.

See DIETMAR, "Chronicon;" "Nouvelle Biographic GeWrale."
Otho (Otto) TTT, Emperor of Germany, son of the
preceding, was three years of age at his father's death.
He was crowned at Rome by Pope Gregory V. in 996.
While he was engaged in a war with the Slavi, Crescen-
:ius, a Roman patrician, deposed Gregory V. and elected
in his stead a Greek under the name of John XVI. Otho
advanced into Italy, (998,) defeated Crescentius and put
lim to death, and restored the former pope. He died,
without issue, in 1002, and was succeeded by Henry II
of Bavaria.

educated at the court of his uncle, Richard Cceur-de-
Lion, whom he assisted in his wars against Philip
Augustus of France. In 1197 he was chosen emperor
by a portion of the electors, while others declared for
Philip, Duke of Suabia, which gave rise to a ten years'
war. Pope Innocent III. having favoured the preten-
sions of Otho, he was crowned at Rome in 1209, and in
return for this favour conceded to the papal see the right
of investiture. Otho soon quarrelled with the pope, at
whose instigation many German princes and prelates
revolted in 1212 and elected Frederick of Hohenstaufen
as emperor. Otho was defeated at the great battle of
Bouvines, in 1214, by Philip Augustus of France. He
died in 1218.

historians, but the last contains information of great
value relative to German history, being drawn from the
most authentic sources. He also wrote a " History of
the Emperor Frederick Barbarossa." Died in 1158.

en the 5th of February, 1725, was a son of James Otis,
a judge and lawyer. He graduated at Harvard College
in 1743, studied law, and became a resident of Boston



about 1750. He was profoundly versed in classical litera-
ture, and in 1760 published an able work entitled " Rudi-
ments of Latin Prosody, with a Dissertation on Letters,"
etc. He acquired distinction in 1761 by an argument
against the writs of assistance for which the officers of
the customs had applied. Referring to this speech, John
Adams said, "Otis was a flame of fire : with a prompti-
tude of classical allusions, a depth of research, a rapid
Bummary of historical events and dates, a profusion ot
legal authorities, a prophetic glance of his eyes into
futurity, and a rapid torrent of impetuous eloquence
he hurried away all before him. American independence
was then and there born. Every man of an immense,
crowded audience appeared to me to go away, as I did,
ready to take up arms against writs of assistance." The
judges suspended or evaded the decision of the question.
He was elected a member of the legislature in 1762, and
became the leader of the popular party. He was a dele-
gate to the Congress which met at New York in 1765,
and which was called " the Stamp-Act Congress." He
wrote several pamphlets in defence of the colonies against
the arbitrary measures of the British ministry. In Sep-
tember, 1769, he was assaulted by several ruffians of the
opposite party, and received a severe wound in the head,
in consequence of which he became partially deranged,
or permanently disqualified for usefulness. A man named
Robinson was sentenced to pay ^2000 for this assault,
but the fine was remitted by Otis. He had married Ruth
Cunningham, of Boston. He was killed by lightning at
Andover in May, 1783.
