Personality & History

Lucilla was born on the 2nd of January in 24CE. She served her family and Rome in the varying stations that she had. She was born to Cneaus, of the rising Flavii-Alexandri clan and to Cornelia Annthea, a daughter of the Corneli-Scipii clan. She was widely influenced by both of her parents. Her father gave her knowledge and an interest about the military while her mother, influenced her when it came to politics, managing a household, and dealing with those who were a threat to their family. Her twin brother, Jullus, was one of the siblings whom she was the closest to and considering they entered the world together. It made sense. Her education, while unconventional, gave her a wider glimpse of the world that many other women did not receive. 

She was married to her first husband, a wealthy and prominent Senator called Gaius Livius Cassianus. This was where she met Tiberius, her husband's nephew and heir. She retained a positive relationship with him that nearly resulted in him marrying her daughter, Rufia Flavia. During this time she met with Gaius, Claudius' son and began a friendship with him. Her entrance into public life was a dedicated one. Later, she met a young man she instantly felt drawn to and he warmed her heart. Marcus Rufus Honorius. Her husband, a traitor to Caesar whispered falsehoods and she went to her mother to see what was the best course of action. Together they devised a plan where the man would die, and thus, left her a wealthy woman and back under the authority of her father once more. 

The birth of Darius, Junus, Flavia over the following years when Marcus Honorius gets time in Rome away from the army. She spends considerable time and energy ensuring all her children are well educated. Although much her focus is settled on her eldest child, Darius and the one who is most like her in many ways. 

In 50CE, Lucilla meets with Claudius again in the company of her mother, Cornelia Annthea and spends time in the Roman political circuit. There is 

51CE, Marcus Honorius ordered to divorce her. They embrace a final time and mourned the loss of their relationship. Both of them do their duty to Rome and to Caesar. Lucilla does not forget. The marriage brings increased security and power her family. Marcus is given a post in Judea. The two boys were adopted and Flavia is permitted to move in with her mother considering her age, it permits her to be around the political sphere. 

Marriage to Claudius. When she became the wife of Claudius, she was already influential and brought the weight of her family into the fold. She befriended the young, Claudia Livia, the daughter of Claudius and his previous adulterous wife. The child was shamed for the dealings of her mother. She brought her forward and welcomed her into the family. Lucilla spent time with Manius, the presumed heir of Claudius and his mother, Claudia Archaita and her daughter, Acilia Aedia. Slowly working to bring the family together.  During this time she builds connections with many prominent men and women to strengthen her family alliances. It is around this time that she meets Antonia Vitellia, it does not take long for the pair of them to become both the best of friends and lovers. In Antonia, she confides and guides. She hears about the survival of Julia Drusilla, the ill-fated daughter of Caligula and is torn. She was tempted to have her assassinated yet found herself feeling protective towards her. Soon the women both begin to write to each other, each offering support and guidance for the coming years. Julia Valeria is discovered. In order to protect her, Lucilla keeps her close and she acts as a governess for her children. Watching over them and ensuring their safety. 

In 56CE, the twins Claudia Caesaris and Tiberius Claudius Caesar (later Sabucius) were born. The twins were raised by their mother until her death. Various women close to the family spent time with them.
