About Atia Balba Tertia

Julia Caesaris (sister of Julius Caesar)

Second elder sister of Julius Caesar

ulia Caesaris (101 BC-51 BC) was the second sister of Julius Caesar. She married Marcus Atius Balbus, a praetor and commissioner who came from a senatorial family of plebs status.

  • Julia bore Balbus three daughters:
  1. Atia Balba Prima - mother of Quintus Pedius who served as a general and consul.
  2. Atia Balba Caesonia - mother of Octavia Minor (fourth wife of triumvir Mark Antony) and of first Emperor Augustus.
  3. Atia Balba Tertia - mother of Lucius Pinarius, who was a political supporter of Mark Antony.
  • Julia and her mother gave the legal courts a detailed and truthful account about the affair between Pompeia (her sister-in-law) and politician Publius Clodius Pulcher. Caesar divorced Pompeia over the scandal. Balbus died in 52 BC and Julia died a year later. Julia’s youngest grandson and grandchild then known as Octavian (future Emperor Augustus) at age 12 to her honor delivered her funeral oration at her funeral.
