Augusta: The First Ladies of Imperial Rome, Part I

Released Friday, 11th September 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
Let's trace the paths of some of ancient Rome’s first imperial superstars: the wives, sisters, and daughters who rose with Octavian (later Augustus) to become Rome’s first family: Livia, Octavia, Julia, Messalina, both Agrippinas. In a time of great change, these women had to navigate both public love and hate. They had access to power in ways that few women had before them, but to grasp it was a delicate and dangerous game.
