Encyclopedia > Lucius Cassius Longinus

Lucius Cassius Longinus married Caligula's sister Drusilla in 33ad. Cassius came from an ancient and respected family. He was well raised by his father, but was a conspicuous person.

In early 37ad, he was appointed by Tiberius as a commissioner. When Tiberius died later, Caligula became Caesar.

Caligula ordered Cassius to divorce Drusilla, so she can live in Rome with her brother. At that time, the former consul was Asian Governor.

Caligula murdered Cassius, before his assassination in 41AD, based on an oracle which Caligula misunderstood as Cassius, Caligula thought would kill him.
