During the reign of his adoptive father, he remains in the shadows and not even given the title of Caesar. After the death of Antoninus, his half-brother immediately share power with him, except the titles of "Pontifex Maximus" (supreme pontiff) and "Pater patriae" (father of the country). Lucius Verus led a brilliant campaign in Armenia between 163 and 165, then against the Parthians. He married Lucille 164. He died in February 169.
