Last time, we saw Agrippina the Elder making some big power plays for her children, but ultimately she lost the imperial game. Now we follow her daughter, Agrippina the Younger, as she faces exile and heartbreak, power and prestige, threat and conspiracy. Ever resilient and ambitious, she will achieve feats that no imperial woman has before. Grab a golden cloak, a sharp tongue, and your best swimming stroke. Let’s go traveling.

Tres(!) sodales imaginem quodam die nivali ab Augusto captam tractant, necnon foramina terrestria quae fortasse ad terram australem ducunt.

When her son Nero takes the title this changes, and she struggles to have her voice heard. Part V of ‘Empresses of Rome’ Guest: Dr Emma Southon (Historian and author of Agrippina: Empress, Exile, Hustler, Whore).
