Resource Description

Evaluate the reforms and policies of reign of any TWO of the Julio Claudian Rulers: Tiberius, Gaius, Claudius, Nero Intro: Tiberius was the second emperor in the Julio-Claudian reign, following Augustus who had great popularity and a steady following. Tacitus writes of Tiberius being a controlling and evil tyrant of Rome, however when we review the facts of his reign in modern times, it seems that this is not the case. Tiberius became emperor at 55 years old, an age that proves wisdom and knowledge about Rome and how to rule. He had been preparing for the role of Princeps for a long time before Augustus’ death, which explains how he was able to build such a stable empire throughout his reign. He was, despite some ancient sources’ negative views of him, a ruler that brought many good reforms and policies to Rome.
