Julia

Julia, feminine name in the Julian gens. 1 Died 54 BC, daughter of Julius Caesar and wife of Pompey. By her grace and tact she maintained the bond between her father and her husband. After her death the two statesmen became open enemies. 2 39 BC–AD 14, daughter of Augustus and wife, in turn, of Marcus Claudius Marcellus (d. 23 BC; see under Marcellus), Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa, and Tiberius. Her infidelities caused her banishment by Augustus to Pandataria (Ventotene) Island in the Tyrrhenian Sea. Soon after Tiberius became emperor, she died of starvation. 3 18 BC–AD 28, daughter of Julia and Agrippa (see above); wife of Lucius Aemilius Paullus. Because of her licentious conduct, she was banished by Augustus to the island of Tremerus off the coast of Apulia, where she died.
