Q. How can I kill or divorce my husband??? I want to marry someone else. xxx - Queen_Bee A. Just marry your new love secretly, then he'll have no choice but move on himself! You could also just poison him... - Locusta_123
To start off, she forced Silius to divorce his own wife (Junia Silius), and agree to marry her. They planned to have a wedding ceremony when Claudius was out of town, so that they could overthrow the emperor together.
... and you'll also get a verrryyy expensive golden laurel wreath to match my tiara! #couplegoals!
They had a secret ceremony, and Messalina already started moving Gaius's furniture to "their" palace. Unfortunately for her, among the wedding guests was Narcissus, the secretary of Claudius...
Hmmm.... should I rattle out my good friend Messalina... or stay faithful to my emperor...?
Messalina is cheating on you!
When Narcissus told Claudius everything, he didn't seem to care...
In the end, Narcissus took action and matters in his own hands. He ordered the guards to kill all the guests at the wedding, including Gaius Silius.
Eventually Messalina was ordered to kill herself, but in the end was killed by the messenger who came to tell her this.
For some reason Claudius didn't really seem to care when his wife died, and eventually he just found a new beautiful woman to marry... No one really lived happily ever after though...
