The Julio-Claudians ruled the Roman empire longer than any other dynasty, but not one of the five emperors was the son of his predecessor. Instead, the dynasty was carried down the female line. Guy will tell the story of the remarkable women, such as Livia and Agrippina, who were the backbone of this era.
