She was the second wife of Septimus Severus(193-211), sister of Empress Julia Maesa, and the mother of two future co-emperors(very briefly)Geta and Caracalla. Julia was able to maintain great power for nearly a quarter century in Rome. Ancient historians report that Julia was concerned with pursuits of the mind as well. She gathered intellectuals and philosophers around her and was widely regarded as an exotic beauty and a shrewd politico. She was familiar with the trappings of power from a young age. Her father was a high priest in Syria. The knowledge of the ins and outs of the political elite served Julia well throughout her life. She was empress with Severus from 193-211ad. She also exercised great power with her son Caracalla throughout his reign(211-217). She controlled administrative affairs while her son was away on Campaign. Caracalla even granted her the title of “Mother of the Senate and of the fatherland”. This was relatively uncommon in this era. Things weren’t all sunshine and roses for Julia though. Her two sons, Geta and Caracalla reigned together from 209-211. In order to take the throne solely for himself, Caracalla ordered his brother killed in 212. The murder took place in Julia’s presence, and she was powerless(reportedly) to stop the fratricide. In 217, when Caracalla was killed and his throne usurped my Macrinus, Julia Domna starved herself to death. Julia was 57 years old when she died. She had managed to maintain power for nearly a quarter century in a time when power could be hazardous to ones health. She outlived her emperor husband(septimus severus) and her emperor sons.
