Roman Emperor. Served from A.D. 41 to A.D. 54. The son of Nero Claudius Drusus Germanicus and thus nephew of Tiberius, he caused Messalina, his third wife, to be executed and was in turn supposedly poisoned by her successor Agrippina the younger, after she had persuaded him to pass over his son Britannicus as heir in favor of Nero, her son by a former husband. Claudius literary works are lost. His cremated ashes were placed in an unknown location in Rome.
