His survival led to his being declared Emperor by the Praetorian Guard after Caligula's assassination, at which point he was the last man of his family.During his reign, Claudius revived the rumor that his father Drusus was actually the illegitimate son of Augustus, to give the appearance that Augustus was Claudius' paternal grandfather.In 9 BC, his father Drusus unexpectedly died on campaign in Germania, possibly from illness.Despite his lack of experience, Claudius proved to be an able and efficient administrator.He was also an ambitious builder, constructing many new roads, aqueducts, and canals across the Empire.
