Antoninnus was the only child of Titus Aurelius Fulvus, consul in 89.

The condition was, that Antoninus would in turn adopt Marcus Annius Verus, the son of the brother of Hadrian's wife, and Lucius, son of Lucius Aelius (the first adoptive son of Hadrian). After Antoninus death, imperial power was for the first time shared between Marcus Annius Verus and Lucius Verus, who became two co-emperors, Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus.
