Abstract: This thesis argues that the Julio-Claudian emperor needs to be examined in the social and political context of the late Roman Republic wherein competition between the aristocrats determined their behaviour to a large extent. The emperor tried to position himself within the new political order. He tried to control the competition between the aristocrats, but he sometimes also contravened possible competitors in different ways.
