He, Mark Antony, and Marcus Lepidus formed the Second Triumvirate to defeat the assassins of Caesar.
Following their victory at the Battle of Philippi, the Triumvirate divided the Roman Republic among themselves and ruled as military dictators.
Due to the crowded nature of Rome at the time, Octavius was taken to his father's home village at Velletri to be raised.
Lepidus was driven into exile and stripped of his position, and Antony committed suicide following his defeat at the Battle of Actium by Octavian in 31 BC.
Julia died in 52 or 51 BC, and Octavius delivered the funeral oration for his grandmother.
In 46 BC, she consented for him to join Caesar in Hispania, where he planned to fight the forces of Pompey, Caesar's late enemy, but Octavius fell ill and was unable to travel.
Philippus never had much of an interest in young Octavius.
Because of this, Octavius was raised by his grandmother, Julia, the sister of Julius Caesar.
