Historical background



Augustus with Septimius Severus

Caracalla was named Augustus in April 198 before the great Parthian victory. In 202, he married the daughter of the prefect of Praetorian Plautian, Plautille, who would be relegated three years later. In 204, the celebration of the Secular Games begins. Septimius Severus tries to impose the image of the new dynasty. Caracalla celebrates his decennalia in 207 and accompanies his father to Africa. He then joined his father in Brittany at the end of the year 208 when the Roman armies experienced their first successes there..
