Storyline

Tiberius embarks on a series of acts of debauchery, having sex with anybody he pleases, with Caligula a willing participant. Livia is shocked and Tiberius arranges to give her a horoscope for her birthday to suggest to her that she has not long to live. Augustus's son Castor is perturbed at the free hand given Sejanus in bringing to trial anybody Tiberius feels is opposing him but Castor's wife, Livilla, disagrees and is having an affair with Sejanus, ultimately poisoning Castor to get him out of the way. After Sejanus has forced him to marry Aelia, Sejanus's adopted sister, Claudius attends to the dying Livia, who confesses her murderous misdeeds to him and expresses her fear that they will relegate her to Hades. She tells Claudius of a prophecy that claimed he would become emperor and, before she dies, asks that when he is ruler he make her a goddess. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

Although now known only as Caligula he was more properly named Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus. He earned the nickname Caligula as a child travelling with his father's legion in Germania. Reportedly the soldiers made him a little uniform, complete with soldierly boots known as caliga, and he soon earned the nickname Caligula meaning "little boot". It was a nickname he grew to hate as he aged and was not something any wise person used in his earshot. See more »

Quotes

Claudius: What about my father, who was your son? And Germanicus, who was my brother? Did you poison them?
Livia: No. Your father died of his wounds, and Placina poisoned Germanicus without instructions from me. But I had marked them both down for death. They were both infected with that infantile disorder known as "Republicanism."
