Your Answer
D
Marcus Aurelius 
 

Solution

The correct option is C Odovacer 
 
Romulus was the son of the western empire’s master of soldiers Orestes. Orestes ruled Italy in his son’s name for about twelve months, before his troops mutinied. Under the leadership of a German warrior named Odovacer, they revolted against the king. They killed Orestes, dethroned Emperor Romulus Augustus, and Odovacer proclaimed himself the king. This led to the end of the western Roman empire.
