Historical background


PLAUTILLA

(+212)

Augusta

Plautille is the daughter of Plautien, prefect of the Praetorium, friend and confidant of Septimius Severus. Caracalla married the daughter of the Prefect of the Praetorium in 202 at the request of her father. Caracalla doesn't get along with his wife. Plautian is eliminated by Septimius Severus in 205 and Plautille relegated to the Lipari Islands where she is finally assassinated in 212.
