Agrippina the Younger, though not as attractive as her mother, Agrippina the Elder was sister, wife and mother of three Julio Claudian Emperors – Caligula, Claudius and Nero. This made her one of the most influential women in Roman politics in the First Century AD. While women in Rome had no official role to play in male dominated politics, a woman of boundless ambition and a canny understanding of the men in her life could allow her hold sway over their policies and practices.
