  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Caesar 
  the  title  assumed  by  the  Roman  emperors  after  Julius  Caesar.  In 
  the  New  Testament  this  title  is  given  to  various  emperors  as 
  sovereigns  of  Judaea  without  their  accompanying  distinctive 
  proper  names  (John  19:15;  Acts  17:7).  The  Jews  paid  tribute  to 
  Caesar  (Matt.  22:17),  and  all  Roman  citizens  had  the  right  of 
  appeal  to  him  (Acts  25:11).  The  Caesars  referred  to  in  the  New 
  Testament  are  Augustus  (Luke  2:1),  Tiberius  (3:1;  20:22), 
  Claudius  (Acts  11:28),  and  Nero  (Acts  25:8;  Phil.  4:22).
