    Caesar

    Originally the name of a Roman aristocratic family and assumed by Augustus as the adopted son of the dictator C. Julius Caesar, and passed on by Augustus to his adopted son Tiberius. Then the title continued to be used by Caligula, Claudius, and Nero. After that, succeeding emperors retained the name not only for themselves but also for the heir presumptive to the throne. Their power was exercised in the empire by a remarkable combination of legal authority and political acumen. The names of the ruling Caesars in the NT era are:



    27 BCE–14 CE Augustus
    CE
    14–37 Tiberius
    37–41 Gaius (given the surname Caligula by his troops)
    41–54 Claudius
    54–68 Nero
    68–9 Galba
    69 Otho; Vitellius
    69–79 Vespasian
    79–81 Titus
    81–97 Domitian
    98–117 Trajan
    117–138 Hadrian
