Tiberius Gemellus' twin brother died in 23, aged three or perhaps four. I wouldn't call a four year old still in "infancy." Perhaps you mean to say he died while "still a young child?" (talk) 14:44, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

I can't see the problem in describing the age of three or four years as "infancy". What do you understand by the word "infancy" if not that? Romeanna (talk) 16:42, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Livilla "put to death" or "committed suicide": both necessary since the sources are speculative[edit]

Hi. I'm not logged in but I changed the line saying that Gemellus' mother Livilla was "put to death" to say "either put to death or committed suicide" since the sources are speculative and uncertain. Her demise may have been as dramatic as that portrayed in Dio, or it may have been a bit of salacious revisionist history. Anyway, hope you don't mind!

Date of birth[edit]

According to the article Gemellus's date of birth was 10th October AD 19. This happens to be the same as the date of Germanicus's death. I can't help wondering if there has been some confusion here. What is the source for Gemellus's date of birth? Romeanna (talk) 16:48, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
