Marriages and Family
In 33 he married Julia, daughter of Livilla and consul Julius Caesar Drusus (Tacitus, Ann. 6. 27. 1). Julia was the granddaughter of Emperor Tiberius. The marriage produced two children; a boy, Rubellius Plautus who was considered as a rival to Emperor Nero and Rubellia Bassa. Two further children are uncertain; a single inscription refers to a Rubellius Drusus, while Juvenal (Satire VIII. 39) suggests another son, also named Gaius Rubellius Blandus.
