The action takes place in 80 AD. Tito rules the Roman Empire. Vitellia, daughter of the deposed emperor Vitellius, seems to be obsessed with the notion that Tito was only able to become Emperor because his father ousted Vitellius. She is outraged that Tito is now planning to marry the foreign Princess Berenice; she insists that he must die and goads her admirer Sesto, a close friend of Tito, into agreeing to assassinate the Emperor for her sake.
