This thread has died unfortunately, a big thank you to those that posted here.
I could have sweetened the title a bit I guess and added a few more links.
I just thought that wouldn't be appropriate being History and all.
I personally have hours of good reading, even in the Children's story section.
I tend to lean more the the Roman era, I have watched countless doco's on the subject.
Claudius being one of my favourite emperors 41 - 54 AD mainly for the reason that he was considered an Idiot by all.
Suffering from ill-health and an alarming lack of social skills, for which most believed him mentally handicapped, he received no public office from Augustus except once being invested as an augur (an official Roman soothsayer). Under Tiberius he held no office at all.
Generally he was considered an embarrassment at court.
Not the case it seems. www.roman-empire.net...
He decided to invade England
Immediately after the failed rebellion of AD 42, Claudius decided to distract any attention from such challenges to his authority by organizing a campaign to invade and conquer Britain. A plan close to the army's heart, as they already once before had intended to do so under Caligula. - An attempt which had ended in a humiliating farce.
