"One concerned with the means to achieve success"...
I was thinking about that, it is not a meaning for the Empress I have come across before. Not stated like that anyway.

I think, looking at the opulence of the throne, we can see she also has material success. "Concerned with the means", being a nature lover, I like to think she did not have to destroy too much of nature in order to get material success. So she can also still enjoy the rabbits and fruit and flowers. It could also refer to not making enemies...because she has avoided making enemies she can relax and enjoy, and does not have to be on the defensive all the time, defending what she has achieved.

Well that's my explanation anyway
Good luck with your study, Livia
