Augustus

Since JULIA is his only child, a daughter, his heirs descend from the women in his family: his sister Octavia is the grandmother of CLAUDIUS; Livia is the mother of TIBERIUS from her first marriage; Julia is the grandmother of CALIGULA and greatgrandmother of NERO. Partly because of this situation, Augustus enacts various LAWS concerning adultery, marriage, and luxury.
