Tiberius (19th August AD 14 - 16th March AD 37)

Tiberius proved himself a competent general. At the beginning he ruled wisely and competently, but soon became cynical after the flattery of senators and rumours of betrayal. He quickly declined into a bitter and reclusive old man, retiring to Capri for the remainder of his life. Caligula had him smothered with his own bed sheets as he lay deathly ill and advanced in age.
