Julio-Claudian Dynasty Coins for sale (27 BC - 68 AD)

Augustus was adopted by Julius Caesar in his will and became a member of the Julian family. Augustus married Livia Drusilla, daughter of Marcus Livius Drusus Claudius, in 38 BC, thereby uniting the Claudian family with the Julians. Augustus tried to keep the succession in the Julian line but his chosen heirs all met early and suspicious deaths. Augustus was forced to adopt his step-son Tiberius as his successor, Tiberius being Livia's son by a previous marriage. The succession therefore passed to the Claudian side of the family. The remaining emperors of the dynasty were all Claudians and the line finally ended with the death of Nero on 9th June AD 68. James R. Wadman B.A., M.A. [History and Archaeology] for TimeLine Originals.
