 Archira.com -- The Roman Empire
Augustus, leaving no sons, was succeeded by his stepson Tiberius, the son of his wife Livia from her first marriage.
Augustus was a scion of the gens Julia (the Julian family), one of the most ancient patrician clans of Rome, while Tiberius was a scion of the gens Claudia, only slightly less ancient than the Julians.
Their three immediate successors were all descended both from the gens Claudia, through Tiberius' brother Nero Claudius Drusus, and from gens Julia, either through Julia Caesaris, Augustus' daughter from his first marriage (Caligula and Nero), or through Augustus' sister Octavia (Claudius).

Clovis moved the settlement farther south i the mountains, nearer the spring, to escape the notice of Charlemagne and later the Holy Roman Empire.
The only explanation I have for "117 men under Gaius Licinius Marc..." is that the computer was searching for the correct name (and that the guys at Bungie were giving us a hint).
Gaius Licinius was the first magister equitum (sort of right hand man in the court hierarchy) and thus kept the name through history, but there's Gaius Licinius Mucianus who was the govenor of Syria (amongst other things), and also (likely incorrect) Gaius Licinius Macer Calvus, a poet and politico.
