People - Ancient Rome: Agrippa
Born Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa (c. 63 BC–12 BC), he was a Roman statesman and general.

Agrippa in Harpers Dictionary of Classical Antiquities Agrippa, Marcus Vipsanius. A Roman general, who was born in B.C. 63, of an obscure family; studied with young Octavius (afterwards the emperor Augustus) at Apollonia, in Illyria, and upon the murder of Caesar, in B.C. 44, was one of the friends of Augustus who advised him to proceed immediately to Rome. In the civil wars which followed, and which terminated in giving Augustus the sovereignty of the Roman world, Agrippa took an active part; and his military abilities contributed greatly to that result. He commanded the fleet of Augustus at the battle of Actium in B.C. 31. He was thrice consul, and in his third consulship, in B.C. 27, he built the Pantheon. In the year 21 he married Iulia, daughter of Augustus. He continued to be employed in various military commands till his death in B.C. 12. By his first wife, Pomponia, Agrippa had Vipsania, married to Tiberius, the successor of Augustus; and by Iulia he had two daughters, Iulia and Agrippina, and three sons, Caesar, Lucius Caesar, and Agrippa Postumus. The last was banished by Augustus to the island of Planasia, and was put to death by Tiberius, A.D. 14. See portrait on p. 16.

Agrippa in Roman Biography. A-grip'pa, (Mar'cus Vipsa'nius,) a distinguished Roman commander and statesman, born 63 B.C. His family was obscure, but a friendship was early formed between him and Octavius, (afterwards Augustus Caesar,) and his fortunes became inseparably associated with those of the future emperor. To the skill and wisdom of Agrippa, Augustus owed much of his continued success ; especially his victory at Actium, which gave him the empire of the world. After the death of Marcellus, in 23 B.C., Agrippa married his widow, Julia, the daughter of the emperor, by whom he had three sons, two of whom were adopted by Augustus, (see Caius C/ESar,) and two daughters. He died 12 B.C., in the fifty-first year of his age. Agrippa and Maecenas were the chief ministers or advisers of Augustus, and the former was for some time regarded as his destined successor. See G C. Gebauer, "Dissertatio de M. V. Agrippa," 1717; P. Fhamiskn, "Marc. Vipsanius Agrippa: historische Untersuchung iiber dessen Leben und Wirken," 1836 ; Livy, " " Epitome ;" Tacitus, Annales"
