  • Tiberius
    • Pax Romana
      • Because of his reluctance to become emperor in the first place, Tiberius followed Augustus' rule by keeping the Pax Romana.
        • This meant that he did not extend the empire any more than it needed to, and he didn't go to any unecessary wars.
      • Kept natural borders - The Rhine had savage tribes on the other side of it too
        • This meant that he did not have to extend or use many troops to guard the borders.
      • Used client kingdoms - instead of taking over, he used diplomacy and eventual Romanisation instead of taking over.
        • This meant that he could peacefully maintain control over other kingdoms.
      • Promoted internal strife in Parthia so they would stop bullying Armenia
    • Sejanus
    • The Senate
      • Gave the Senate a lot of duties - almost too much!
        • They often asked his advice and Tiberius grew sick of them. "Men fit to be slaves"
          • The senate disliked him because they thought he ruled arbitually.
          • TACITUS
        • Provincial, Financial and Judicial powers were given.
      • Was polite and courteous to them, so they liked him a little.
      • Encouraged them to oppose him
        • Because of the Maiestas trials, they were reluctant to do so because they were scared of being convicted.
          • Sejanus
      • Helped them out financially - Gave Hortalus 200,000 sesterces for every male child he had.
        • However he stopped doing this and then the Senate got annoyed again.
        • TACITUS
    • Retirement to Capri
    • Didn't want to be emperor (Chatacter & nature)
