When one examines the accession of Tiberius to his imperial position one extreme question must be looked at with very open eyes and that is did Augustus want to establish a dynastic government and if so did he truly want Tiberius to inherit or was it merely that Augustus had no other place to turn The purpose of the paper is prove that Augustus motives were clear first to establish a dynastic government second establish Tiberius at the head to the government third when Germanicus Caesar became of age and auctoritus he would inherit the thrown in at a prime age thus ensuring that a blood relative of Augustus would be at the head of the imperial family Finally Augustus knowingly used Julia as he had for countless years as a politcial pawn in his chess game to ensure impreial rule To make such claims it is necessary to look at the ascension of Tiberius with very open eyes Did Augustus conspire with Tiberius to establish a dynastic form of government with Tiberius at the head This is a point of sum conjecture and well never be answered with the sources that are available What can be done is an intelligent assessment of the material that is available and from there form an intelligent hypothesis One such hypothesis is Augustus knowingly conspired with Tiberius to form a dynastic government or imperial regime Coming to the inevitable conclusion that Augustus had planned all along that is with a blood heir in control of the empire Tiberius represented the metaphorical form in the road when it came to the ultimate success of Augustus plans Was Tiberius meant to rule If so was he meant to rule for as long as he did To come up with a sound hypothesis it is necessary to separate us from the knowledge of future outcomes It is difficult to look at the reign of Tiberius with nothing
