Claudius the God: And His Wife, Messalina

Audiobook

This second part of Robert Graves' fictionalized biography of Claudius brings to life some of the most scandalous and violent times in history.

With the same brilliance that characterized his classic I, Claudius, Robert Graves continues the tumultuous life of the Roman who became emperor in spite of himself and his handicaps. Claudius the God reveals the splendor, vitality, and decadence of the Roman Empire through the eyes of the wry and bemused Claudius who reigns as emperor for thirteen years.

The crippled Claudius describes himself as the fool of the royal family, whom none of his ambitious and blood-thirsty relatives considered worth the trouble of killing. Once on the throne, however, he finds himself at last at the center of the political maelstrom.
