Titus Aurelius Fulvus from Promptuarii Iconum Insigniorum

In the 1st century there were two men with the name Titus Aurelius Fulvus. One was the paternal grandfather and the other the father to the Roman Emperor Antoninus Pius.

The elder Titus Aurelius Fulvus was of Gallic descent. This Fulvus was twice consul and served as a city prefect. The family of the elder Fulvus migrated to Rome from Nemausus, Gaul (modern Nîmes, France). In February 69, being commander of Legio III Gallica, he defeated 9,000 Rhoxolani horseman on the Roman side of the Danube. Probably during the 70s he was consul suffectus and in 85 consul.

The younger Titus Aurelius Fulvus was consul in 89. This Fulvus has been described by Augustan History as a ‘stern and upright man’. The younger Fulvus married Arria Fadilla, a daughter to consul and friend to Historian Pliny the Younger, Gnaeus Arrius Antoninus.

Their only child was Titus Aurelius Fulvus Boionius Arrius Antoninus Pius was born in Lanuvium (modern Lanuvio, Italy) on 19 September 86. His son was raised by his father-in-law.
