"Emperor Tiberius"
by cm
  Tiberius (42Bc-37AD) followed Augustus, the first Emperor of Rome.  He was Octavian Augustus's step-son and became a brilliant general, with a series of great campaigns along the Northern Frontier.  But his rule, from 14AD, was less successful.  For the last 11 years of his life, he turned his back on Rome and withdrew to the island of Capri.  He was succeeded by his adopted grandson, the infamous Caligula.
