Before Claudius As Emperor of Rome, there was the first Caesar “Augustus”
The Byzantine Emperors paid much attention to Cyprus, due to its vital position in the empire.
The Arabs, in their strategy of encircling the Byzantine Empire, started invading Cyprus, first in 648/9 AD, when Emir Moabia invaded and destroyed the city of Constantia (the capital of Cyprus at the time). The same thing happend in 653, 743, 806, and finally 911 AD, until Emperor Nikephoros II Phokas reconquered Cyprus for the Byzantine Empire (944-966 AD).
After the death of Emperor Caligula and his family at the hands of the Praetorian Guard, the future Emperor Claudius (41-54 CE) was chosen by these soldiers to be the next head of State. Caligula [Col-Aguila] is a name which tells us that he is from the same family as Claude, and the Aguila is the Eagle which stands for Rome, and especially for the Roman Catholic Army. Most histories repeat a story about the name ‘Caligula’ meaning ‘boot’. Historians hide the true meaning of a person’s name by repeating this type of pointless and silly anecdote, which is of course, impossible to prove or disprove, but is repeated anyway. Every name carries great meaning historically, and no part of it should be disregarded. When a person’s name is insulted this way, we should suspect that everything else written about that person may be slanderous lies.
Most information about Claudius is tainted with unsubstantiated assumptions by historians claiming to be able to read his thoughts, and falsely attributing to him malicious intentions, minimizing his great accomplishments. Claudius is clearly a target of attack by history thieves and narrative forgers.
Although the senate initially declared Claudius a ‘public enemy’, a month later he entered the building with an army and was confirmed as Emperor. Modern evaluation of the evidence suggests a highly discreet behind-the-scenes involvement with Gaius’s assassination, and a prior striking of deals.
Claudius’ first act was to execute Cassius Chaerea and his co-conspirators, the assassins of Caligula. Did Claudius’ entrap his own potential assassins by staging a death? Was this the “behind the scenes prior striking of deals”? You decide.
After this restoration of the rule of law, he built a new harbor at Ostia. Rome was abandoned at this time. Constantinople became the base for an imperial civil service to collect taxes and repair infrastructure.
Ostia became one of the main ports in the later first and second century AD, after construction of artificial harbor basins by Claudius, Nero and Trajan; From there goods were transported in small ships along the coast and by cart.
Similar, but smaller harbors can be found as far away as Hawaii, showing evidence of Roman construction, still standing today, along with very old churches on the Big Island. These are Roman Catholic, and now in ruins, though some old roads and waterworks are still in use. Reports of Roman style citadels in the American desert West were reported by Alvarado and confirmed by other observers 1500 years later. An ancient fort is mentioned often by early explorers around Quebec, Canada.
When Claudius brought about agrarian reform by freeing slaves, this is the point in history in which Feudalism is established. The freed slaves and others who performed military duty were given land and tools in return for a tax on 10% of SURPLUS produced. That amounts to about 1% of total production, but only to the extent that the surplus actually sells. A system was established for expansion of boundaries by large families willing to arm themselves to fight off Pirates from the area and in doing so they expanded Roman Catholicism as a culture and government.
Josephus informs us that food riots broke out in the streets during a prolonged drought at the time of Claudius. Claudius imported corn to feed the citizenry, though credit may rightly go to the woman called Queen Helene by Josephus, and who may have been the mother of Claudius. Julia corresponds to Mary the Virgin Mother. This could be the reason for all the negative propaganda against this family in modern history books written under Jewish censorship.
There are many indications that some of the events of Jesus’ life took place in the British Isles, and yet faith in him has always been strong in Italy.
Claudius’ military actions represent the movement of civilization into territory that had fallen under this Jewish and Pirate control.
Claudius reclaimed land by draining the Fucine Lake in Central Italy.
He strengthened Roman fortified cities in Syria, Macedonia and Anatolia, and by doing so established Roman Catholicism there and beyond. The South Sea Islands and America, judging by the architecture, customs and legends that remain, have much evidence of long term and ancient Roman habitation and trade.
Constantinople became the world trading center and it consumed large amounts of dried cod and precious items supplied to it from around the world, though mainly from the North Atlantic and Canada, and delivered by ship and by merchants traveling along Silk Road routes, protected by Roman Catholic armies. Markets were held outside the city gates. The people lived inside the gates, under Roman Catholic rule, where they were happy to be, otherwise the system could not have lasted for two millennia. The system may be even older, if you consider that it began in India long before the time of Julius Caesar, and by his own ancestors.
We are still today enjoying the remnants of this system, even as we seek to understand what has undermined it.
The era of Roman world dominion, the Byzantine Empire, is a two thousand year period during which Constantinople was the Capitol City of the Roman Empire, and it was a city that celebrated the man known to us today as Jesus. The Turks have done what they can to eliminate evidence of this, but many door stoops in the country side of Anatolia have words engraved on the reverse. Those door stoops of Anatolia could reveal much about this era. Netanyahu is doing his best to bomb what’s left of Palmyra. Erdogan is maintaining the degradation of Anatolia that began when the Turks and Jews took over Constantinople in a gradual infiltrating process that took hold 500 years ago and finally succeeded after the assassination of King Faisal I.
During his lifetime, Claudius completed the elimination of pirates and slavers at Mauritania and on the British Isles. Claudius personally led his army through Gaul and across the Channel into Britain where, with little opposition, he reduced much of the island’s pirates into submission by issuing orders to “find the tax collectors and execute them publicly”.
Is Claudius the same person as Julius Caesar? I suspect so. It’s possible that the following list is all one person, possibly staging several deaths in order to function without hindrance on different projects.

A revolt led by Scribimanus, governor of Upper Illyricum [Dalmatia], was easily put down with many of the participants being executed. Ties to the conspirators led to many high ranking officials in Rome. Claudius had thirty-five senators and four hundred others executed, some committed suicide. Cassius Dio wrote, “…he caused all who came near him, men and women alike to be searched, for fear they might have a dagger, and at banquets he was sure to have some soldiers present.” To further insure safety, and to stop the rioting and assassinations, he had all Jews expelled from the city.
