When Claudius' disability became evident, the relationship with his family turned sour.Antonia referred to him as a monster, and used him as a standard for stupidity.He spent a lot of his time with the latter and the philosopher Athenodorus.Augustus, according to a letter, was surprised at the clarity of Claudius' oratory. His work as a budding historian damaged his prospects for advancement in public life.However, by the time he reached his teenage years his symptoms apparently waned and his family took some notice of his scholarly interests.In 7 AD, Livy was hired to tutor him in history, with the assistance of Sulpicius Flavus.
Despite his lack of experience, Claudius proved to be an able and efficient administrator.
He was also an ambitious builder, constructing many new roads, aqueducts, and canals across the Empire.
During his reign the Empire began the conquest of Britain (if the earlier invasions of Britain by Caesar and Caligula's aborted attempts are not counted).
Because he was afflicted with a limp and slight deafness due to sickness at a young age, his family ostracized him and excluded him from public office until his consulship, shared with his nephew Caligula in 37.
Claudius' infirmity probably saved him from the fate of many other nobles during the purges of Tiberius's and Caligula's reigns; potential enemies did not see him as a serious threat.
