Man who made the difference

Tiberius (42 BC-AD 37)

Tiberius

The elder son of Livia and Tiberius Claudius Nero Drusilla and second emperor of Rome, was born on 16November 42 BC, Rome, Italy. Tiberius's coldness and reserve and his desire for economy in government rendered him unpopular with the people and, together with his supposed depravity, gave him a bad name in legend and history. His mother divorced his father after his birth and married the Roman Emperor Augustus Triumvir Octavian, who educated him carefully. In AD 14, Tiberius, unopposed, succeeded to the throne, When Augustus died at Nola. His reign was marked by revolts and rebellions in Pannonia, Germany, Gaul, and other parts of the empire. Domestically, the reign of Tiberius was at first beneficent. He kept the army in strict discipline, improved the civil service. With great generosity and ability he managed the finances. The provinces were governed more efficiently during his rule than ever before. Eventually, a change took place, and the latter part of his reign was marked by a series of conspiracies and consequent executions. Tiberius left Rome in AD 26.

He died on 16 March, 37 AD, at Misenum.
