About Marcus Valerius Messalla Messallinus, Roman Consul

Marcus Valerius Messalla Messallinus was the son of the Roman famous orator Marcus Valerius Messalla Corvinus, whom he resembled in character, and wife Calpurnia.

He was a senator and consul in 3 BC and AD 3. Messallinus suggested to Roman Emperor Tiberius an oath of allegiance should be sworn to him yearly; he also suggested two golden statues be placed in two temples, in celebration of Rome's foreign victories and in memory of Germanicus, which Tiberius rejected.

Messalinus was governor (praepositus) of Illyricum, where he was involved in fighting Pannonian uprising (Great Illyrian Revolt). With half-filled legion XX defeated the Pannonii led by Bato I (Bato the Daesitiate) and prevented spread of the uprising. He married Roman Emperor Augustus' niece Claudia Marcella Minor, her second husband. Their son Marcus Valerius Messalla Barbatus was the father of Marcus Valerius Messala Corvinus (consul 58) and Roman Empress Valeria Messalina who was Roman Emperor Claudius' third wife. Their daughter Valeria, born ca 10 BC, married Lucius Vipstanus Gallus (ca 15 BC - 17), Praetor in 17, and had issue.
