Gaius CaesarGrandson and designated heir to emperor Augustus Romans / Historical Persons
Gaius Iulius Caesar (20 BCE - 4 CE) was son of Agrippa and Julia, and hence grandson of Augustus, who adopted Gaius and his brother Lucius Caesar in 17 BCE. At the age of 15, when he reached adulthood, he was admitted to the senate, assigned the consulship for 1 CE and given the title of princeps juventutis.
After being consul in 1 CE he went to Parthia with pro-consular powers. Here he met the Parthian king, appointed a client king in Armenia and and suppressed a revolt there. He was seriously wounded in a siege and died eighteen months later on his way back to Rome.
Several monuments and buildings were dedicated to Gaius and Lucius after their death.
