  Nero Claudius Drusus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nero Claudius Drusus Germanicus, born Decimus Claudius Drusus and variously called Drusus, Drusus I or Drusus the Elder (14 January 38 - 9 BC) was the younger son of Livia, wife of Augustus Caesar, and her first husband, Tiberius Claudius Nero, and was thus a patrician Claudian on both sides.
Drusus married Antonia Minor, the daughter of Mark Antony and Augustus's sister, Octavia Minor, and gained a reputation of being completely faithful to her.
Drusus' son was Germanicus, and Germanicus married Agrippina the Elder.

 Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus - Wikipedia
Nero (15 december 37 Antium - 9 juni 68 Rome) was keizer van Rome van 13 oktober 54 rond 18:30 tot 9 juni 68.
Nero wordt daarom vaak gezien als de aanstichter van de eerste christenvervolging, maar dit beeld klopt niet helemaal; tot algemene, systematische geloofsvervolging in het hele Rijk kwam het pas veel later in de Romeinse geschiedenis.
Nero liet Tiridates in 66 persoonlijk naar Rome komen - wettelijk was dat niet nodig - om zijn bevestiging uit handen van de keizer te ontvangen.

Drusus was said to have been deterred from crossing the Elbe by the sudden appearance of a woman of supernatural size, who predicted his approaching end.
Although the successes of Drusus, resulting in the subjection of the German tribes from the Rhine to the Elbe, were too rapid to be lasting, they brought home the fact of the existence of the Romans to many who had never heard their name.
Drusus was a man of violent passions, a drunkard and a debauchee, but not entirely devoid of better feelings, as is shown by his undoubtedly sincere grief at the death of Germanicus.

 Roman Emperors - DIR Claudius
Claudius was remembered (negatively) by tradition as being noticeably profligate in dispensing grants of Roman citizenship to provincials; he also admitted "long-haired" Gauls into the senatorial order, to the displeasure of the snobbish incumbents.
Claudius, then, is a more enigmatic figure than the other Julio-Claudian emperors: at once careful, intelligent, aware and respectful of tradition, but given to bouts of rage and cruelty, willing to sacrifice precedent to expediency, and utterly ruthless in his treatment of those who crossed him.
Claudius may have suffered from cerebral palsy, but medical diagnoses in the absence of physical remains and at a distance of 2,000 years are not the soundest.

CLAUDIUS I [Claudius I] (Tiberius Claudius Drusus Nero Germanicus), 10 BC-AD 54, Roman emperor (AD 41-AD 54), son of Nero Claudius Drusus Germanicus and thus nephew of Tiberius.
He caused Messalina, his third wife, to be executed and was in turn supposedly poisoned by her successor, Agrippina the Younger, after she had persuaded him to pass over his son Britannicus as heir in favor of Nero, her son by a former husband.
Claudius was much reviled by his enemies and historians have accused him of being only a tool in the hands of his freedmen-secretaries and his wives; there are indications, however, that he had considerable administrative ability.
