In ancient Rome, in 19 A.D., Germanicus, the extremely popular adopted son of the Emperor Tiberius, died mysteriously. Germanicus had married Agrippina the Elder, granddaughter of Augustus, with whom he had 9 children. One of them became the mother of the last Julio-Claudian emperor, Agrippina the Younger, mother of Nero. Another child of Germanicus and Agrippina the Elder was Gaius Caesar, who became the emperor known as Caligula.
