Like all official titles of the Roman Republic and Principate, the honor of being called pater patriae was conferred by the Roman Senate.
It was first awarded to the great orator and senatorial statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero for his part in the suppression of the Catilinarian conspiracy during his consulate in 63 BC.
It was next awarded to Julius Caesar, who as dictator for life became the de facto ruler of the Roman republic and its imperium.
The Senate voted the title to Caesar Augustus in 2 BC, but being neither important for the ruler's legitimacy nor for his legal powers, it did not become a regular part of the imperial honors, contrary to imperator, caesar, augustus, princeps senatus, pontifex maximus and tribunicia potestas. According to the historian Suetonius, Augustus' successor, Tiberius, was offered this title, but refused it.
