Claudius.jpg (3467 bytes)
Tiberius Claudius Drusus
Emperor 41-54

Claudius [b. 10 bc] suffered from palsy,  was considered a buffoon and became a  historian. When Caligula was assassinated, Claudius was the senior surviving member of the imperial family. A good administrator, he depended too much on his freedmen and wives. After Messalina's adulteries shocked Rome, so that she  finally had to be executed,  Claudius married his niece Agrippina, who probably poisoned him.

Relatives depicted on coins:
Messalina - wife; Brittanicus - son; Agrippina Jr.- 2nd wife
