Lucius Julius Caesar (17 BC - 20 August AD 2), most commonly known as Lucius Caesar, was a son of Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa and Julia the Elder. He was adopted, raised, and educated by his maternal grandfather, Roman Emperor Caesar Augustus.

Lucius died in Gaul of an illness in AD 2.

Lucius Caesar in Gunpowder EmpireEdit

In an alternate known as Agrippan Rome, Lucius became the third Roman Emperor upon the death of his father Emperor Agrippa in AD 26. A copy of Lucius' official statue in Rome stood in the courtyard of the Crosstime Traffic station in Polisso.[1]

Literary commentEdit

In OTL, Lucius had an older brother, Gaius, born in 20 BC, who outlived him just barely, dying in AD 4. There is no mention of Gaius in the novel, although it can be inferred that he died before AD 26.
