I added several more data to the biography of this important Roman aristocrat. My main sources were Tacitus Annals and Ronald Syme's books The Roman Revolution (Oxford University Press 1939, reprinted many times) and The Augustan Aristocracy (Oxford University Press 1986). These books include a full family-tree of the Aemilia family. It often difficul to distinguish the many Aemilii Lepidi: Marcus Aemilius Lepidus (the Triunvir), Marcus Aemilius Lepidus (consul 6 AD), Lucius Aemilius Paullus (brother of the 6 AD consul and husband of Augustus' grand-daugther, who may need a new Wikipedia article. In Tacitus Marcus Aemilius Lepidus is sometimes confused with his less important cousin Manlius Aemilius Lepidus (both are reported as M. Lepidus in the text). Please fell free to add more data or change any possible mistakes.
