Claudius was not an unqualified success in his marriages. Some of them were arranged, and the last two marriages, to Messalina and Agrippina, were tragedies. He was either too naive or too trusting with Messalina, despite her infidelities, and he only flew to action when he learned of Messalina's bigamous marriage to Silius. He either overlooked her behavior, was in denial, or was blind to her affairs. His marriage to Agrippina, who was just as dissolute as Messalina, has also been questioned, particularly in his adoption of Lucius Domitius (Nero) as heir to the throne. This act seems irresponsible in view of Nero's tyrannical reign.

Tiberius, was the adopted son of Augutus. He earned a reputation as a brilliant general.

One of his failiers were making a show of allowing the Senate to vote freely, but punishing those who criticized him.

He was a large man with pimples, Tiberius was apparently gloomy and reclusive. He was said to be fond of wine, but to hate crowds and another weakness was he was to be scared of thunder!

He lived in terror of being assasinated. So he eventually retired to the island of capri.

A major weakness was that he was reigning when Jesus Christ was crucified by the Romans in Jerusalem.
