The son of the popular Roman general Germanicus and Augustus’s granddaughter Agrippina. The Elder, Caligula was born into the first ruling family of the Roman Empire, conventionally known. As the Julio-Claudian dynasty. Germanicus’ uncle and adoptive father, Tiberius, succeeded. Augustus as emperor of Rome in 14 AD. Although he was born Gaius Caesar, after Julius Caesar, he acquired the nickname “Caligula”. (meaning “little [soldier’s] boot”, the diminutive form of caliga) from his father’s soldiers during. Their campaign in Germania. Where she became entangled in a bitter feud with Tiberius. The conflict eventually led to the destruction of her family, with Caligula as the sole male survivor. Untouched by the deadly intrigues, Caligula accepted an invitation in 31 to join the emperor on the i. Sland of Capri, where Tiberius had withdrawn five years earlier. Following the death of Tiberius. Caligula succeeded his adoptive grandfather as emperor in 37 AD. There are few surviving sources about the reign of Caligula, although he is described as a noble. And moderate emperor during the first six months of his rule. After this, the sources focus upon. His cruelty, sadism, extravagance, and sexual perversion, presenting him as an insane tyrant. While the reliability of these sources is questionable, it is known that during his brief reign, Caligula. Worked to increase the unconstrained personal power of the emperor, as opposed to countervailing. Powers within the principate. He directed much of his attention to ambitious construction projects. And luxurious dwellings for himself, and initiated the construction of two aqueducts in Rome. The Aqua Claudia and the Anio Novus. During his reign, the empire annexed the client kingdom. Of Mauretania as a province. Caligula was Romes most tyrannical emperor. His reign from 37-41 AD is filled with murder and. Debauchery, to levels even his infamous nephew Nero could not reach. The great-great grandson of Julius Caesar certainly left his mark by his possible madness and. The story of Caligula is a legacy that goes back thousands of years. In his short life of only 29 years. He experienced terrible tragedy, a deep hatred for the man who killed his family, great power as the. Emperor of Rome , and eventually, a brutal death. In the latter years of his life, his behavior became. So outlandish and extreme that many believe he was suffering from insanity. Some say he was driven to madness by the events in his life, while others say he may have been. Mentally ill or suffering the effects of a disease. In early 41, Caligula was assassinated as a result of a conspiracy by officers of the Praetorian Guard. The conspirators’ attempt to use the opportunity to restore the Roman Republic. On the day of the assassination of Caligula, the Praetorians declared Caligula’s. Uncle, Claudius, the next Roman emperor.
