About Claudia Marcella Minor

Claudia Marcella Minor

The younger daughter, Claudia Marcella Minor (PIR2 C 1103, Minor Latin for the younger, born 40 BC or 39 BC), was born after her father's death. She is generally believed to have been married twice but her marriages are not directly mentioned in any Roman texts, and are assumed on the basis of other sources.

Her first marriage was to a Claudius Pulcher, by adoption Marcus Valerius Messalla Appianus (Consul in 13 BC), who died in the early months of his consulship[9]. Marcella had one child by Appianus, a son named Marcus Valerius Messalla Barbatus. This son died prior to achieving a consulship, but not before marrying his half-cousin Domitia Lepida, by whom he had his only child, the later Roman Empress, Valeria Messalina[10][11].

At some point after Appianus' death, Marcella entered into a second marriage, this time to the former consul and censor, Lucius Aemilius Lepidus Paullus. Paullus, like Marcella, had also already been married and lost a spouse (Cornelia, the maternal half-sister of Julia the Elder), by whom he had had three children[12]. Marcella and Paullus may have had a son together, named Paullus Aemilius Regillus[13], who was a quaestor of Tiberius Caesar[14].

Other sources, however, make her only daughter by her first marriage Claudia Pulchra, born around 13 BC, who became the second wife of her distant cousin, Publius Quinctilius Varus after the death of his first wife, Vipsania Marcella, and following the death of her second husband she married Marcus Valerius Messalla Messallinus, by whom he had a son born in 12 BC named Marcus Valerius Messalla Barbatus - who was the father of Empress Messalina - and a daughter Valeria, who married Lucius Vipstanus Gallus, Praetor in 17, who died during his office, and by whom she had issue.[15][page needed]
