9. Daughter of Drusus [DRUSUS CAESAR, No. 16] and Livia, the sister of Germanicus. She married, A. D. 20, her first cousin, Nero, son of Germanicus and Agrippina (Tac.. Ann. 3.29; Dio Cass. Iviii. 21), and was one of the many spies with whom her mother and Sejanus surrounded that unhappy prince. (Tac. Ann. 4.60.) After Nero's death Julia married Rubellius Blandus, by whom she had a son, Rubellius Plautus. (rac. Ann. 6.27, 45, 16.10; Juv. Sat. 8.40.) [BLANDUS.] As Blandus was merely the grandson of a Roman eques of Tibur, the marriage was considered degrading to Julia. She too, like the preceding, incurred the hatred of Messalina, and, her instigation, was put to death by Claudius, A. D. 59. (Tac. Ann. 13.43; D. C. 60.18; Suet. Cl. 29; Sen. de Mort. Claud.
