In spite of being the last Roman Emperor, Romulus Augustus was universaly recognised as the Final ruler of the Western Roman Empire.
After being deposed by a Roman General Orestes he retreated to Dalmatia where he continued to claim the western imperial title and was continued to be recognised by the Eastern Roman Empire until he was murdered in 480.
