Tiberius was born on November 16, 42 B.C.E., in Rome and became the adopted son of future emperor Augustus. After Tiberius became emperor himself, he established the concept of ruler as god and improved the Roman economy, though his erratic behavior made him unpopular with citizenry and the senate. Involved in murderous conspiracies related to the throne, Tiberius retired to Capri in his later years.
