He had apparently requested to be relieved of his duties in the East and to return to Rome. Augustus was once again without an adult male heir and was once more forced to turn to Tiberius, who was now too busy for poetic composition. Augustus’ dynastic settlement involved a series of adoptions. He adopted Tiberius and Agrippa’s surviving son Agrippa Postumus. Tiberius adopted Drusus’ son Germanicus, husband of Agrippa’s younger daughter, Agrippina. Germanicus was the grandchild of Augustus’ sister Octavia and was thus a blood relative of both Augustus and Tiberius.

Sejanus’ bid to marry Livilla offered a means for Sejanus to be brought within the family and therefore provided Tiberius with an alternative route to an heir. The implications of such an alliance were clear. In AD 25, Tiberius was unwilling to turn aside from his own grandchild or the children of Germanicus and contemplate Sejanus as imperial heir or guardian of any such heir.
