<br />Claudia was a Vestal Virgin as was thought to be Tarpeia, Tuccia, and Rhea Sylvia, who conceived Romulus and Remus. In Roman mythology Vesta pertains to a Roman goddess, the Sacred fire of Vesta, and the Temple of Vesta.

Claudia, a descendant of noble Roman stock, was devoted to her father and had much love for him. One day the Roman Senate decreed a great honor on him. While he was celebrating an elaborate triumph in front of a large crowd, a tribune of jealous plebs lunged forward to do him harm. Claudia, seeing this from the sidelines, rushed in between the plebs and her father to protect him. Somehow, this small woman managed to forge between her father and the attackers, giving her father a chance to escape. He was then able to continue his grand triumphal march to the Capital. Claudia, in turn, was also able to march triumphant back to the Temple of Vesta.
