Book 117 & 118
“I, Claudius” & “Claudius the God”
I first came to this via the brilliant BBC TV series - still one of the great television adaptations. Following on from books 107/8, I read them again.
It turns out Caligula killed his Dad (Germanicus) and Livinia was behind all the machinations, murders and manoeuvring to make Tiberius Caesar.
And Claudius - could this be a true (or truer) account?
Recently went to the Glyptotek Museum in Copenhagen - the pics are (top left and clockwise) Augustus, Clau Clau Claudius, the nutty Caligula and herself, Livivia.
