This chapter introduces the theme of power in relation to a still expansionist Rome in the first century AD. It concerns a specific example of the way in which imperial policy was enacted through the use of client kings in advance of directly controlled territory. The larger purpose of this chapter is to illustrate the flagrant way in which Rome devised policy (and reinvented history) to suit its own interests. Loyal and trusted imperial clients in Britain found themselves suddenly personae non gratae at the accession of a new emperor, with the established alliances cynically sacrificed for what was seen as easily attainable military kudos.
