Born Publius Septimius Geta in 189 CE, he is remembered to history simply as Geta. He was the son of Septimius Severus and Julia Domna, the founders of the Severan Dynasty. He was appointed Caesar in 198 CE and was raised to the role of Augustus in 209 CE when he ruled jointly with his father, Severus and his brother, Caracalla. This arrangement lasted only two years until the death of Severus in 211 CE. Despite attempts by their mother to intercede, Caracalla had Geta assassinated in 211 and assumed sole rule of Rome.
