Juba was the son and heir of Juba I of Numidia who was defeated by Julius Caesar. The boy was taken to Rome as part of Caesar's triumphal procession. He was raised by Caesar and accompanied Octavius on campaigns. He fought beside him at Actium. He learned Latin and Greek and was very well educated; he was known an important author of natural history and geographical writings. He was awarded Roman citizenship and later made King of Numidia. He was a loyal client king to Rome although his Romanization antagonized the Numidians and he went to Mauretania. He renamed the capitol Caesarea (modern Cherchell) in honor of Augustus.
