But when revelations of Livia's crimes reach Augustus, the emperor, realizing he has been duped, writes a new will favoring Postumus, in order to block Tiberius from gaining the throne. Livia, in her ultimate act of treachery, slowly poisons her husband. After his death, she substitutes her own version of the emperor's will and orders the murder of her remaining rivals. Tiberius rules Rome.
NOTES: Episode X: Caligula, now totally mad, turns the imperial palace into a brothel with orgies and gambling. The empire is in financial ruin, though Claudius retains his dreams that one day the true Roman republic will be restored. Caligula taunts his court with ever great wikedness. Finally he is assassinated right in front of the eyes of Claudius. The soldiers, eager to justify their coup, give the crown to Claudius. At last he is the emperor of Rome, as had been prophesied.
