Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

Marcus was born in AD 121, in the reign of the emperor Hadrian. At first he was Marcus Annius Verus, but his well-born father died young and he was adopted by his grandfather, who had him educated by number of excellent tutors.

When he was sixteen, he was adopted by his uncle by marriage Aurelius Antoninus as Hadrain's heir. 

Aurelius Antoninus changed Marcus' name to his own and betrothed him to his daughter, Faustina

She bore fourteen children, but none of them survived Marcus except the worthless Commodus, who eventually succedded Marcus as Emperor.
