Caesarion's where-abouts and fate was unkown after Cleopatra's death. His other child was Julia, who had a son Gnaeius by Pompey the Great who eventually opposed Julius in civil war. Gnaeius was presumably considered an enemy also.

Octavian had only one biological child and her 5 kids all preceded Octavian in death.

Tiberius had two sons, both dying before him.

Add in palace intrigue/mysterious deaths etc for later Emperors. It's not so much that biological children were passed over as that bio kids were already dead at the time of the reigning Caesars' deaths.
