Drusus Germanicus definitions

Britannica Concise

Younger brother of Tiberius and commander of Roman forces in German territory. The reputed son of Octavian (later Augustus), he was allowed to take office five years earlier than the legal age. In 13 BC he became governor of the three Gauls, where he conducted a census and erected an altar to Augustus. In 12 he marched into Germany, reaching the Elbe three years later. During those years he was made praetor in 11 and consul in 9. At the Elbe he was thrown from his horse and died. His son Claudius later became emperor.
