161

In the year 161, Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus became officially co-Emperors of Rome, though Marcus eventually became the dominant figure — siblings, even adopted ones, are sometimes like that — and on Lucius' death became sole Emperor.

I don't know if it's still dominant, but the Carnival of the Vanities is now in its 161st edition. The World According to Nick — Schweitzer, that is — takes its place among the celebrated hosts of the original blog compilation.
