    • To combat this, he ensured that his successor, Pius adopted Aurelius and his adopted brother as his heir
  • Aurelius and Pius grew closer, which gave Aurelius greater positions, such as Consul in AD 140.

The Senate liked Aurelius as much as Pius.

  • Aurelius insisted that he would joint-rule with his adopted brother, Verus.
