About Sextus Aelius Catus
Sextus Aelius Catus
Sextius Aelius Catus (consul of 4 AD) was father of Aelia Paetina, second wife of the emperor Claudius from 28 AD to about 31 AD (when Aelia's adoptive brother Sejanus fell from power). His only known grandchild was Aelia and Claudius's daughter Claudia Antonia, born in 30.
Sextus Aelius Catus was possibly descended from Sextus Aelius Q.f. Paetus Catus, consul of 198 BC and later a censor, or from Quintus Aelius Tubero, consul 11 BC. His daughter Aelia Paetina is said to belong to the Aelii Tuberones, which implies a descent from the consul of 11 BC.
