*******

The archetypal power-hungry quarreling, brothers, Caracalla and Geta were born to Septimius Severus and Julia Domna in 188 and 189 CE, respectively. Both sons were groomed from an early age to one day ascend to the role of Augustus. Caracalla was given the title in 198 CE at the age of 10 and ruled jointly with his father until 211 CE. Geta was given the lesser role of Caesar in 198 CE and was not elevated to Augustus until 209 CE when he ruled jointly with his brother and father. The two brothers were always fighting amongst themselves and did not share power well. Despite the best efforts of their mother to maintain a truce between her sons Caracalla had Geta murdered in 211 CE, shortly after their father's death, and ruled solely until his own assassination in 217 CE.
