Livia: First Lady of Imperial Rome by Anthony A. Barrett

Livia—wife of the first Roman emperor, Caesar Augustus, and mother of the second, Tiberius— wielded extraordinary power at the center of Roman politics. In this biography of Livia, the first in English, Anthony Barrett sets aside the portrait of a cunning and sinister schemer to reveal Livia as a complex figure whose enduring political influence helped shape Roman government long after her death.

An excellent biography of Livia-as appealing to the general reader as it is satisfying to the scholar.—Colin M. Wells, Trinity University, San Antonio

In reading Anthony Barrett’s biography of Livia, I not only learned about this remarkable woman, but also gained a meaningful appreciation of life and society in her time.—Howard Alper, President, The Royal Society of Canada

First-rate.—Mary Beard, Times Literary Supplement
