Drusus, son of Tiberius, born 13 B.C., died 14 September 23 A.D.

Drusus (also called Drusus Junior or Drusus the Younger), the only son of Tiberius, became heir to the throne after the death of Germanicus. Drusus' wife Livilla was seduced by the praetorian prefect Sejanus and she poisoned Drusus to support Sejanus' plot to become emperor. Dying before Tiberius, Drusus never obtained the throne. Sejanus' plot was discovered in 31 B.C. and he and Livilla were executed.
