The Timeline of the Life of Tiberius,
the Second Roman Emperor


Tiberius Caesar

Background

The second wife of Octavian (Caesar Augustus), Livia Drusilla, had two children, Tiberius and Drusus. Drusus was a very successful general campaigning in what became Germany. However while on campaign he was thrown from his horse and died of his injuries a few days later. Tiberius was in the military as well and took over the command of the Roman troops in Germany after his brother's death.

Tiberius, despite having become in effect the second emperor of Rome, did not seem to have led a happy successful life. He seemed to have been a victim of his mother's (Livia Drusilla) ambitions.
