Historical background


CLAUDIUS

(24/01/41-13/10/54)

Claude was born in 10 BC in Lyon. Became emperor by chance after the assassination of Caligula in 41, he is despite physical flaws a great emperor and a good administrator, but remains dominated by his wives and his freedmen who hold the reality of power. In 50, after his marriage with his niece, Agrippina, he adopted his son Nero to the detriment of Britannicus, his own son born of the union with Messalina. He dies assassinated by Agrippina who serves him a dish of poisoned mushrooms.
