Servilia and her Family

Servilia’s patrician paternal line, the Servilii Caepiones, descended from Cn. Servilius Caepio consul 253. Servilia’s great-grandfather was probably Cn. Caepio consul 141, censor 125. His presumed second son won a triumph and the consulship of 106. This man proposed a law on the panels of judges. His defeat by the Cimbri at Arausio in 105 wrecked his career. Driven into exile, he gave up his citizenship. His son, Q. Caepio, possibly by a Metella, married Livia. Her family, the Livii Drusi, had distinguished themselves in the second century. Her father was tribune 122, consul 112, triumphed, and died as censor 109. Livia and Caepio produced a daughter, Servilia (c.100), and a son. They divorced and Livia married Cato, to whom she bore two children. On the deaths of Cato and Livia, the four children lived with their maternal uncle M. Drusus and perhaps his wife and his mother.
