Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, more commonly known as Caligula (August 31, 12 CE – January 24, 41 CE) was a human male who served as the Emperor of the Roman Empire from 37 CE to 41 CE.
Succeeding his Grand Uncle Tiberius as Emperor Caligula at first was a wise and moderate ruler. Later in his reign he became one of the most depraved and cruel men to ever rule the Empire. Caligula was assassinated by his own troops in 41 CE and was succeeded as Emperor by his Uncle Claudius. (Historical accounts)
Upon meeting Valeria Williams for the first time Samuel Abraham Kirk noted she was named after Valeria Messalina, the wife of Claudius. Williams informed Kirk that it was a tradition in the Williams family to name their children after figures from Roman history, and that to date there was not any members of the family named after Caligula.
