IMPERIUM - Augustus

The First Emperor

Octavius, whose name as emperor becomes Augustus, comes to power at the age of only 19, after the assassination of his uncle, Julius Caesar. He divides up the Empire with Mark Anthony, who rules over the eastern portion. Lacking a male heir, Octavius forces his daughter Julia to marry his stepson Tiberius. Then Iullus Anthony, Julias' lover and the son of Cleopatra and Mark Anthony, is caught plotting to kill the emperor. Augustus sends his daughter into exile for adultery rather than executing her for treason.
