    (November 16, 42 BC-March 16, 37)
    Birth name was Tiberius Claudius Nero
    Emperor of the Roman Empire (14 -37 AD)
    Adopted stepson of Augustus
    He was not part of the Julian-Claudian bloodline.
    He divorced a woman he really loved, just to marry into the Julian family at Augustus' insistence.
    When he had a share of imperial power and became the heir apparent to Augustus, he left Rome without warning to live with an astrologer on Rhodes.
    He probably wouldn't have become emperor if Augustus' other potential heirs hadn't died pre-maturely.
    He was forced to adopt the young Germanicus, which was Augustus' last attempt of insuring a Julian another chance at the throne.
    When Germanicus died on a hugely successful military campaign during the peak of his popularity in Rome, many accused Tiberius of having him killed.
    He surrounded himself with people who constantly plotted against him.
    He was the first emperor to make liberal use of accusing people of treason, which would be adopted by Rome's more tyrannical emperors in the future.
    When he died, his will made both his natural son, Tiberius Gemellus and the son of the hugely popular Germanicus, Gaius Germanicus (Caligula), joint heirs to the throne. Gauis murdered Gemellus and declared the will null and void on grounds of insanity.
    He suffered from depression.
    He was loyal to Augustus, who warned him against expanding the Roman empire further.
    He was a very efficient emperor, despite his unpopularity with the people.
    There was no costly wars while he reigned.
    His death was unfairly celebrated, as the Roman people thought Caligula to be the future of Rome (boy, were they wrong).
