Julia Domna was born in Syria in 170 CE. In 187/188 CE she was married to Septimius Severus and became Empress of Rome when Severus was appointed Emperor in 193 CE. She is credited with being a woman of learning and held a great amount of power through her influence with her husband. She was also the mother of Caracalla (b. 188 CE) and Geta (b. 189 CE). Her influence within the empire continued under her son Caracalla with her often administrating the empire while her son was on campaign. She committed suicide in 217 CE after the assassination of Caracalla.
