He was born at Rome to a prominent branch of the gens Claudia, the son of Tiberius and his first wife, Vipsania Agrippina. His name at birth was Nero Claudius Drusus after his paternal uncle, Drusus I the Elder.
Drusus died suddenly in AD 23, seemingly from natural causes. Ancient historians claim he was murdered by the powerful Sejanus, Praetorian prefect of Rome.
