Augustus, Emperor of Rome (Roman emperor, 63 BCE-14 CE)

Note: Adoptive son of Julius Caesar. When Gaius Octavius was named the heir of Julius Caesar (assassinated 44 BC), he was a politically unknown 18 year old. Early portrait types presented him bearded, as a sign of mourning for his adoptive father, thereby reinforcing his claim to be Caesar’s rightful successor. One of the Julian-Claudian emperors; the others being Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, and Nero.
