Germanicus Julius Caesar (Latin: Germanicus Julius Caesar) was a prominent Roman general in the early Roman Empire, a member of the Julius-Claudius dynasty and the legal heir of Emperor Tiberius. He received the nickname Germanicus in 9 years in honor of his victories in Germany. Germanicus was the son of Nero Claudius Drusus (brother of Tiberius) and Antonia the Younger, daughter of Mark Antony. He married Agrippina Stara – granddaughter of Octavian Augustus, who bore him 9 children. Two of them die very young, a third dies in childhood, and the other 6 are: Nero Caesar Druze Caesar Gaius, better known as Caligula, the future Roman emperor Agrippina the Younger, mother of Nero Julia Drusilla Julia Livila Germanicus is extremely popular among the citizens of Rome, who enthusiastically celebrate his victories in the Balkans and in Germany. He is also a favorite of Augustus, who sees him as his successor to the imperial post. In 4 August he adopted Germanicus. In 12 Germanicus became consul. After the death of Octavian Augustus in 14, the Senate appointed Germanicus commander in chief of forces in Germany. Tiberius became emperor, but was very unpopular. Not wanting to accept Tiberius as emperor, the revolted Rhine legions proclaimed Germanicus emperor. Germanicus refuses, remaining faithful to his uncle. From 14 to 16 he led successful military campaigns in Germany in revenge for the extermination of the XVII, XVIII and XIX legions under the command of Var in 9 years in the battle of the Teutoburg Forest. On May 26, 17, Germanicus celebrated a triumph over his victories over all Germanic tribes west of the Elbe River. Tiberius envied his success and sent him as commander in chief of the eastern provinces. Piso was relieved of his post, but in the meantime Germanicus became seriously ill and died in Antioch, Syria, in 19. There was speculation about his death and several sources said that he was poisoned by Piso by order of Tiberius. Pison is trying to regain his post, but is accused by his rivals of poisoning Germanic with his wife, Munatia Plancina. The two are forced to leave for Rome, where they will be tried before the Senate and the emperor. Along the way, they were greeted with general demonstrations of sympathy and mourning. Germanicus was ordered to receive posthumous honors, including the erection of many statues and arches in his honor. Thus in the Circus Flaminius, at public expense, a marble arch was erected. Two new arches were built at the Augustus Forum, one on each side of the Avengers Mars Temple, dedicated to Druze and Germanicus, respectively. I guarantee for authenticity.
