Claudius was the fourth Roman emperor and was part of the “Julio-Claudian” dynasty. He was the fifth of Suetonius’ “Twelve Caesars” after Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius and Caligula. He ruled from 41 to 54 AD. He succeeded Caligula after his murder and preceded Nero. He conquered Britain and it became a Roman province for four centuries. Opinion of him seems kind of mixed but I don’t think he was a bad emperor. Click on the thumbnail for a larger picture and attribution.
