Antonin was born September 19, 86 at Lanuvium. His family is originally from Gaul (Nîmes). It is a rich senator who married Faustina the former between 110 and 115 and thus entered marriage in Hadrian's family. After the death of Aelius 1 January 138, Hadrian chose Antoninus his successor on February 25 138 in two adjoining her adoptive son, Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus. Hadrian died on July 10 and Antonin succeeded him. He must first fight to deify Hadrian, enemy of the Senate. In 139, Caesar Marcus Aurelius and Faustina became augusta. His reign was peaceful and happy and symbolizes the "Pax Romana" of the second century. In 148, it commemorates the 900th anniversary with pomp of Rome.
