Historical background


Lucius Verus

(7/03/161-02/169) Lucius Aurelius Verus

Son of Aelius Lucius Verus, born in 130, was passed along by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus at the express request of Hadrian dying. 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.
