Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa (c. 63 BCE–12 BCE) was a Roman statesman and general. He was a close friend, son-in-law and minister to Octavian, the future Emperor Caesar Augustus. He was responsible for most of Octavian’s military triumphs, most notably winning the naval Battle of Actium against the Egyptian forces of Mark Antony and Queen Cleopatra.

Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa in Gunpowder Empire[]

In one alternate visited by Crosstime Traffic, Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa (c. 63 BCE - 26 CE) lived much longer than in the home timeline, eventually conquering Germania at the behest of Emperor Augustus.[1] When Augustus died in AD 14, Agrippa became the second Emperor of Rome, and, despite his age, reigned for 12 years.[2] During his reign, he built a stable empire that stood well into the 21st century, which included the conquest of Dacia. For that reason, Crosstimers referred to that alternate as "Agrippan Rome".

Agrippa was succeeded as Emperor by his son, Lucius.[3]
