Emperor Hadrian's FamilyEmperor Hadrian



The most famous of Emperor Hadrian's relatives was another Emperor - Trajan!

Hadrian's father died in AD 86 when Hadrian was just 10 years old. Hadrian became a ward of Trajan who was his father's cousin.

This meant Hadrian had family connections right at the top and he began a military career under the watchful eye of Trajan, who at that time was not yet Emperor.

When Trajan was made heir to the Empire, it was Hadrian who raced to bring him the good news.

Later, Hadrian married Vibia Sabina, the daughter of Trajan's niece Matidia Augusta, after having accompied the new emperor (Trajan) to Rome.

Scroll down the page for a picture of a bust believed to be Vibia Sabina, wife of Emperor Hadrian.

Sabina was the Emperor Trajan's grand-niece.

Trajan's wife Pompeia Plotina recommended Hadrian as heir to Trajan, as Hadrian was a relative of Trajan.

Emperor Hadrian Ruled from 117 to 138 AD.
