Description - Livia by Anthony A. Barrett
Livia, wife of the first Roman emperor Caesar Augustus and mother of the second, Tiberius, wielded extraordinary power at the centre 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.
