Caracalla was born Lucius Septimius Bassianus in 188 CE to Septimius Severus and Julia Domna. His name was changed to Marcus Aurelius Antonius in 195 CE, in an attempt by his father to link himself and his household with the preceding Antonine Dynasty. However, he is known to history simply as Caracalla. He was made Augustus with his father and heir to the empire in 189 CE. In 202 CE he was married to Fulvia Plautilla, his second cousin and daughter of his father's close ally. This marriage proved to be a thoroughly unhappy one and he had her killed in 212 CE. After the death of Septimius Severus in 211 CE, Caracalla and Geta attempted to rule the empire together. This was short lived however, as he had he brother assassinated in 211 CE. He continued to rule technically alone, although his mother was still an important part of Roman politics, until his assassination while on campaign in Parthia in 217 CE.
