Historical background


SÉVERINE

(+ After 275) Ulpia Severina

Aurélien woman - Augusta (274-275)

Séverine, who received the title in augusta 274, survived her husband Aurelian assassinated by a conspiracy of palace. A three-month interregnum ensued during which it could be that Séverine has continued to routine matters with the help of the Senate. Coinage Séverine is too large compared to her husband for a period between the end of 274, when the reform also shorter, and the death of Aurelian.
