Historical background




Julia Domna is from Emesa in Syria and daughter of the High Priest of Baal of Emesa. Septimius Severus married her around 180. She gave him two sons, Caracalla, born in Lyon in 188, and Géta, born in 189. She was proclaimed Augusta in 194, accompanied the Emperor on his travels and therefore received the title of " Mother of the camps". During the Brittany expedition, she was regent in Rome. After the death of Septimius Severus, she received new honors, Mother of the Senate and Mother of the Country, as well as the titles of Pia Felix (pious and happy). In 212, Geta was assassinated by his brother in the arms of Domna. During Caracalla's Germanic and Parthian expeditions, Domna remained in Rome. After the death of her son, she is exiled by Macrinus and dies soon after..
