About Marcus Annius Verus

Marcus Annius Verus (died 124) was a distinguished Roman politician who lived in the 2nd century, served as a praetor and was the biological father of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius.

He was the son of Roman Senator Marcus Annius Verus and noblewoman Rupilia Faustina. His brother was Marcus Annius Libo and his sister was Faustina the Elder who married the Emperor Antoninus Pius. He married Domitia Lucilla, the heiress of a wealthy family which owned a tile factory. They had two children, Marcus Aurelius (born in 121, and who was also originally named Marcus Annius Verus), and Annia Cornificia Faustina (born in 123). Annius Verus died young while he held the office of praetor.[1] Both his children were still infants. The likeliest year of his death is 124.[2]

In his Meditations, Marcus Aurelius, who was only about 3 years old when his father died, says of him: "From what I heard of my father and my memory of him, modesty and manliness"
