Marriage of Livia and Augustus

This post is also available in: Polish (polski)

Livia and Augustus
Livia and Augustus

The marriage of Livia and Augustus was no different from the other Roman marriages. Livia was an exemplary wife who loved her husband; certainly faithful, which, moreover, is consistent with her impeccable upbringing.

On the other hand, she had a great influence on him. She reportedly brought him to such a state that before talking to her, as suggested by Suetonius, he took notes:

[…] his conversations with individuals and the more important of those with his own wife Livia, he always wrote out and read from a note-book, for fear of saying too much or too little if he spoke offhand.

Suetonius, Augustus, 84
