(though the marriage was merely made up for political

turely, four years after her marriage, from the shock of 
a serious alarm, when she was advanced in pregnancy.

cation, and who is classed along with Cornelia, the mother 
of the Gracchi, and Aurelia, the mother of Cæsar.

tion. Was very successful as a general in early life, after 
the death of Julius Cæsar. Married three wives, but left 
only one daughter.

Cæsar, but in what degree she was connected with it is

who had much of the character and ability of Caius, being 
only an adopted son.)

eminent legislator and great patron of learning. Had very 
many children, including Louis le Débonnaire, both legi¬
