  • Marriage: Claudius I Emperor of Rome [61169]

bullet  General Notes:

This connection and the daughter are rather questionable. Some say there was a marriage contract (in 5AD) but is was called off.

Aemilia Lepida
(5 BC-53) was a noble Roman woman and matron. She was the eldest daughter and first born child of Julia the Younger (the first granddaughter of the Emperor Augustus ) and consul Lucius Aemilius Paullus . Her father was of a distinguished and ancient patrician family. She was the first great-grandchild of Emperor Augustus, noble woman Scribonia and a great-grandchild of consul Lucius Aemilius Lepidus Paullus (brother of the triumvir Marcus Aemilius Lepidus ). Aemilia Lepida had a younger brother named Marcus Aemilius Lepidus (6-39) who was married to Caligula's favorite sister Drusilla and who died in Caligula's reign.

In her younger years, Lepida was betrothed to Claudius , but her parents fell out of favour with Augustus so the emperor broke off the engagement. In 8, her mother Julia the Younger (otherwise called Vipsania Julia) was exiled for adultery, like her mother Julia. Her father Lucius was executed in 14 for participating in a conspiracy against Augustus.

Lepida married by 13 Marcus Junius Silanus Torquatus, a member of the patrician branch of the ancient gens Junia. Their children were:

Marcus Junius Silanus Torquatus (14-by November, 54), who was consul in 46.

Junia Calvina (died after 79) who married Lucius Vitellius the Younger (killed in 69), a brother of the future Roman Emperor Vitellius and was divorced by 49. She was accused of incest with her youngest brother, sent into exile by Emperor Claudius and recalled ten years later by Emperor Nero after he killed his own mother.

Decimus Junius Silanus Torquatus (d. 64, forced to commit suicide) who was consul in 53.

Lucius Junius Silanus Torquatus the Elder (committed suicide on New Year's Day, 49), praetor in 48 who was engaged to Claudius's daughter Claudia Octavia until Agrippina the Younger spread false rumors about his alleged incest with his sister Junia Calvina.

Junia Lepida who married Gaius Cassius Longinus, and raised her nephew Lucius Junius Silanus Torquatus the younger (50-66) after his father Marcus was murdered.

Lepida was killed in 53 on the orders by her maternal cousin Empress Agrippina the Younger for unknown reasons, possibly because of her imperial descent.
