Suetonius was a close friend to Senator and letter-writer Pliny the Younger. The Roman Senate was a political institution in Ancient Rome. Gaius Plinius Caecilius Secundus, born Gaius Caecilius or Gaius Caecilius Cilo (61/63 - ca Pliny describes him as "quiet and studious, a man dedicated to writing. " Pliny helped him buy a small property in Italy and interceded with the Emperor Trajan to grant Suetonius immunities usually granted to a father of three, the ius trium liberorum, because his marriage was childless. Italia, under the Roman Republic and later Empire, was the name of the Italian peninsula.

Under Hadrian, he became the Emperor's secretary.
In 122, Hadrian dismissed him for disrespectful behaviour towards Empress Vibia Sabina. Vibia Sabina ( c 86-136 or 137 was a Roman Empress wife and third cousin to Roman Emperor Hadrian. Suetonius may have later regained imperial favor under Hadrian and returned to his position. This hypothesis is based on the suggestion that Offices of State was one of his last works, and that the subject was chosen to reflect Hadrian's administrative reforms. However, there is no certain evidence for a public career after 122.
