NOTES: Episode III: Determined to see her exiled son, Tiberius, become emperor, Livia uses blackmail and murder to eliminate rivals and end his banishment. Julia herself is banished, after Livia reveals details of her orgies to Augustus, turning him against his own daughter. Finally, Tiberius returns to Rome. But he must wait in the shadow of the aging Augustus for his time on the throne, and so must Livia.
NOTES: Episode IV: Only one obstacle remains between Tiberius and the throne: Julia's son and heir to Augustus, Postumus. Livia entraps Postumus in an adulterous tryst and he is arrested for rape and banished from Rome. Postumus reveals her plots to Claudius, Livia's stammering and lame grandson. Claudius, though regarded as a half-wit, is wiser than anyone suspects, hiding behind the face of a fool in order to survive.
