A Tourist in Rome - Tiberius

Birth:November 16, 42 BC
Death:March 16, 37 AD (old age, or perhaps murdered by Caligula)
Emperor:14 - death

Tiberius was the son of Tiberius Claudius Nero (that's not the emperor Nero) and Livia Drusilla. His mother divorced Nero and married Augustus who adoped Tiberius. He was one of Rome's greatest generals, expanding Rome's northern frontier. Livia always wanted Tiberius to succeed Augustus as emperor, and finally got her wish when Augustus' other two adopted sons died ("I Claudius" contends Livia had them killed). Tiberius was not a very effective emperor, and became paranoid and cruel in his later years, putting many people to death. His greatest monument was the huge palace he built on the Palatine, the Domus Tiberiana.
