From: WordNet (r) 2.0

      n : Roman Emperor after his nephew Caligula was murdered;

          was poisoned by his fourth wife Agrippina after her son
          Nero was named as Claudius' heir (10 BC to AD 54) [syn: Claudius

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    lame. (1.) The fourth Roman emperor. He succeeded Caligula (A.D.
    41). Though in general he treated the Jews, especially those in
    Asia and Egypt, with great indulgence, yet about the middle of
    his reign (A.D. 49) he banished them all from Rome (Acts 18:2).
    In this edict the Christians were included, as being, as was
    supposed, a sect of Jews. The Jews, however soon again returned
    to Rome.
      During the reign of this emperor, several persecutions of the
    Christians by the Jews took place in the dominions of Herod
    Agrippa, in one of which the apostle James was "killed" (12:2).
    He died A.D. 54.
      (2.) Claudius Lysias, a Greek who, having obtained by purchase
    the privilege of Roman citizenship, took the name of Claudius
    (Acts 21:31-40; 22:28; 23:26).
