JUBA’S YOUTH AND EDUCATION book
The infant Juba II arrived in Rome and participated in Caesar’s African triumph of 46 BC. He then spent his youth and adolescence in the households of Caesar’s heirs, exalted company that exposed him to the most talented military and intellectual leaders of the emergent Augustan regime, eventually accompanying Augustus on campaign, receiving Roman citizenship, and marrying a royal wife. Thus when Augustus eventually placed him on the throne of Mauretania, young Juba was eminently trained both politically and culturally to be the implementer of Augustan policy in northwest Africa.
