Claudius is urged to marry and chooses the poisonous Agrippinilla so that he can use her talents to help him govern. He knows that she has imperial ambitions for her son Nero but intends to out-manoeuvre her and implement his plan for a restored Republic.
Caligula's behavior becomes more and more erratic. Claudius works hard to control him but a conspiracy is growing among the soldiers. How can they rid themselves of their mad Emperor? And who will replace him?
The battle lines are drawn for control of the Empire - Augustus, Germanicus, Postumus and Claudius on one side; Livia and Tiberius on the other. But will Livia descend to the ultimate treachery to win the throne for her son?
Nine years have passed, writes Claudius, during which time Agrippa has been poisoned by Livia, and Tiberius has been forced to divorce his beloved wife. But Tiberius is thoroughly miserable, and his brother Drusus oppose the Empire.
Livia, wife of the Emperor Augustus, is determined to see her son from an earlier marriage, Tiberius, succeed Augustus, but she must first remove the emperor’s first choice as heir, his son-in-law, Marcellus.
