(10 B.C. - A.D. 54)
Tiberius Claudius Drusus Nero Germanicus was his full name. He was poisoned with Amanita mushrooms by his wife Agrippina, after her son, Nero, was name as his heir.
A banquet during the time of Claudius might consist of jellyfish, brains, mushrooms, sea urchins, parrot, roast deer, ostrich, stuffed dormice, ham, doves, flamingo, and dessert cakes. If you became too full to eat anymore you called a servant over to tickle your throat, vomited into special bowls kept for that purpose, and went on with the rest of the meal.
