Antonia, Daughter of Mark Antony, Wife of Nero Drusus, Mother of Claudius, Grandmother of Caligula

Antonia was the daughter of Marc Antony and Octavia, wife of Nero Claudius Drusus, sister-in-law of Tiberius, mother of Claudius, and grandmother of Caligula. Renowned for her beauty and virtue, Antonia spent her long life revered by the Roman people and enjoyed many honors conferred upon her by her relatives. She died around 37 A.D.; she was either poisoned by Caligula or committed suicide after he rejected her. Although she never loved her sickly son, Claudius, calling him a monster and a fool, he posthumously made her Augusta in 41 A.D. and all her coinage was issued early in his reign.
