Описание:In this dynamic biography-the first on Agrippina the Younger in English-Anthony Barrett paints a startling new picture of the powerful first-century Roman woman who was the sister of the emperor Caligula, wife of the emperor Claudius, and mother of the emperor Nero. Barrett draws on the latest archeological, numismatic, and historical evidence to argue that Agrippina was not simply a sexually alluring manipulator but an influential politician of great ability and determination.
