[edit]Birth and early life

She was born in Athens, Greece and after 36 BCE was brought to Rome by her mother and her siblings. Antonia never had the chance to know her father, Mark Antony, who divorced her mother in 32 BCE and committed suicide in 30 BCE. She was raised by her mother, her uncle and her aunt, Livia Drusilla. Due to inheritances, she owned properties in Italy, Greece and Egypt. She was a wealthy and influential woman who often received people, who were visiting Rome. Antonia had many male friends and they included wealthy Jew Alexander the Alabarch and Lucius Vitellius, a consul and father of future Emperor Aulus Vitellius.

[edit]Marriage to Drusus

In 16 BCE, she married the Roman general and consul Nero Claudius Drusus. Drusus was the stepson of her uncle Augustus, second son to Livia Drusilla and brother to future Emperor Tiberius. They had several children, but only three survived. Their children were the famous general Germanicus, Livilla and the Roman Emperor Claudius. Antonia was grandmother to Emperor Caligula, Empress Agrippina the Younger and great-grandmother and great-aunt to Emperor Nero. Drusus died in June 9 BCE in Germany, due to complications from injuries he sustained after falling from a horse. After his death, although pressured by her uncle to remarry, she never did.

Antonia raised her children in Rome and had Tiberius as their guardian. Germanicus died in 19CE. On the orders of Tiberius and Livia Drusilla, Antonia was forbidden to go to his funeral. When Livia Drusilla died in June 29CE, Antonia took care of Caligula, Julia Agrippina, Julia Drusilla, Julia Livilla and later Claudia Antonia, her younger grandchildren.

[edit]Antonia's children

Germanicus was very popular among the citizens of Rome, who enthusiastically celebrated all his victories. He was also a favourite with Augustus, his grandfather-in-law, who, for some time, considered him as heir to the Empire. He was married to Agrippina the Elder, daughter of Julia the Elder (Augustus's own daughter) and Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa. He had nine children by Agrippina but only six lived to adulthood. They were Nero Caesar, Drusus Caesar, Gaius Caesar (Caligula), Julia Agrippina, Julia Drusilla and Julia Livilla. In 4CE, Augustus finally decided in favour of Tiberius, his stepson, but he was compelled to adopt Germanicus as a son and name him his heir. After the death of Augustus in 14CE, the Senate appointed Germanicus commander of the forces in Germania. Tiberius was made emperor, but he was highly unpopular and the legions rioted on the news. Refusing to accept Tiberius, the rebel soldiers cried for Germanicus as emperor. However, Germanicus refused. Germanicus died in Antioch, Syria in 19CE, a year after he defeated the kingdoms of Cappadocia and Commagene. His death was surrounded by speculation, and several sources refer to claims that he was poisoned by Gnaeus Calpurnius Piso, governor of Syria, under orders of the emperor Tiberius.

In 31CE, Antonia exposed a plot by her daughter Livilla and Tiberius’ notorious Praetorian prefect, Sejanus, to murder the Emperor Tiberius and Caligula and to seize the throne for themselves. Livilla had poisoned her husband, Drusus Julius Caesar, Tiberius' son, in order to remove rivals. Sejanus was murdered on Tiberius’s orders and Livilla was handed over to her formidable mother. Cassius Dio states that Antonia imprisoned Livilla in her room and allowed her to starve to death. After Livilla's death, Antonia's only remaining child was Claudius. Due to his constant illnesses and physical disabilities, she would constantly put him down. She would say a monster: a man whom nature had not finished but had merely begun or, when accusing anyone of stupidity, would exclaim, he is a bigger fool even than my son Claudius!.

Julia Antonia Minor („az ifjabb” latinul) (Kr. e. 36. január 30./31. – 37. május/október) Marcus Antonius és Octavia kisebbik lánya, Augustus római császár unokahúga, Antonia Maior testvére, Claudius császár édesanyja, Caligula nagyanyja és Nero dédanyja volt.

Nero Claudius Drusushoz – Livia császárnő kisebbik fiához, Tiberius öccséhez – ment feleségül. Öt gyermekük közül három maradt életben: Germanicus, Livilla és Claudius. Férjét hűségesen követte annak galliai és germaniai hadjáratain.

Drusus halála (Kr. u. 9.) után nem házasodott újra. Amikor fia, Germanicus 19-ben gyanús körülmények között elhunyt, Tiberius császár és Livia anyacsászárné megtiltotta, hogy megjelenjen temetésén. Livia 29-ben bekövetkezett halála után ő viselte gondját legkisebb unokáinak, az idősebb Agrippinától származó Caligulának és Drusillának.

31-ben leleplezett egy összeesküvést, melyet lánya, Livilla és Seianus, a praefectus praetorio szőtt Tiberius ellen. A császár meghálálva Antonia szerepét az összeesküvés felszámolásában, Livilla megbüntetését Antoniára bízta, aki – Tacitus közlése alapján – szobájába záratta és halálra éheztette gyermekét, így elkerülhette a család nevének bemocskolását. Antoniát csak egyetlen gyermeke – a megvetett Claudius – élte túl (Antonia egyszer szörnyetegnek nevezte kisebbik fiát, aki mind észbeliek, mind fizikum tekintetében jóval elmaradt Germanicus mögött ifjúkorában).

Antonia 37-ben, miután elnyerte az Augusta címet, öngyilkosságot követett el Caligula parancsára, miután boldogtalanságának mert hangot adni legkisebb unokája, Tiberius Gemellus meggyilkolása után. Suetonius szerint viszont Caligula megmérgeztette nagyanyját
