Younger daughter of Marcus Antonius (Mark Antony) and Octavia, b. 36 bc, married Nero Claudius Drusus; their children were Germanicus, Livilla (Livia Iulia), and Claudius. After Drusus' death in 9 bc she refused to marry again, and after Livia Drusilla's death brought up her grandchildren Gaius 1 (the future emperor Caligula) and Iulia Drusilla. Gaius, on his accession, conferred numerous honours upon her, including the name ‘Augusta’ (see augustus, augusta, as titles), but soon found her criticisms irksome and, it was said, drove her to suicide (37). Claudius rehabilitated her memory.
