In this episode Dr. Andrew Traver takes us into the very heart and genesis of the future Roman Emperor Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus.
From exploring his childhood in a world of uncertainty to his coming of age in the early Roman Empire, this story covers a variety of topics from his personal ailments that caused him to be scorned and oftentimes mocked by family members to his love of researching and studying the past and beyond to him being noticed by Emperor Augustus as someone who may have more potential after all.
It is a sad story, it is filled with tragedy but it ends in triumph as we see political figures rise and fall and we approach the eventual triumph of Claudius to the very heart of the Roman Empire itself and the "Emperorship" that held it together. Emperor Claudius was the Emperor that ancient Rome needed and deserved.
