Livia, his widow, received the same in honor of her service, and was adopted into the Julian house and given the title Augusta.
Tiberius recognized the reality of the title extended to Livia, and, having no love for his domineering mother, he severely restricted the execution of the powers that complemented the name.
Their position, however, was politically impotent, and consequently began the trend that reduced the status of the rank to that of a title given the wife or nearest female relative of the emperor.

In Germanicus, Marcus Corvinus is commissioned by the aging Empress Livia (the late Augustus' wife, and Tiberius' mother) to investigate the death of wonder-boy Germanicus.
The Empress Livia is two years dead, but she still has a job for Corvinus detailed in a letter written shortly before she died.
Treason trials and accusations of adultery (or worse) are common place and Livia's orders are for Corvinus to find convincing evidence of Sejanus' underhand dealings and present them to Tiberius so that he will bring about Sejanus' demise.

The message of the story appears to concern the relationship between liberty (as demonstrated by the Roman Republic, and the dedication to its ideals shown by Augustus and young Claudius) and stability (as demonstrated by Empress Livia, Herod Agrippa, and the elder Claudius).
Near the end of Claudius the God, Graves introduces another idea: that when a formerly-free nation has lived under a dictatorship for too long, it is incapable of returning to free rule.
There also seems to be a subtle feminist message, in line with other works of Graves's: Julia, Livia, Drusilla, Messalina, and Agripinilla are quite obviously the powers behind their husbands, fathers, brothers, and/or sons; a good example being: whereas Augustus would have inadvertently caused civil war, Livia managed, via quiet manipulation, to preserve the peace.
