Married at the age of 14, Caracalla was wed to the daughter of Severus(Caracallas father) close friend Plautianus, Plautilla. Caracalla despised his new wife, questioning her morality and fidelity, publicly calling her a shameless creature. Caracalla questioning anyones morality is laughable, since he is considered one of the more brutal and bloodthirsty emperors, right up there with Commodus and Nero. He was power hungry and paranoid, a dangerous combination for a man with absolute power. He murdered his brother, repeatedly tried to have his father killed, and slaughtered any perceived opposition to his throne. While the marriage produced a daughter, it came to an abrupt end when in 205 CE Plautianus was accused and convicted of treason and executed. Plautilla was exiled and later put to death shortly after Caracallas accession. Plautilla was the daughter of Plautian, Septimius Severus’ powerful and ambitious praetorian prefect. She was wed to the Roman emperor Caracalla in a marriage arranged by her father in A. 202 because he wanted to promote his ambitions even further by having a daughter who would someday be empress. Plautilla and Caracalla despised one another. Plautilla did not care for Caracalla, and he reciprocated by spurning and neglecting his wife. Plautilla even criticized the young caesar. At first, they barely tolerated each other but later, they would not even be seen in each other’s presence. In the meantime, Plautillas father was becoming ever more openly ambitious and careless about hiding it. He arrogantly had statues erected in his honor and had his enemies hunted down and killed. He competed openly with Caracalla for power and influence to the point where Caracalla came to loathe the obnoxious praetorian prefect. In 205, Plautian was accused of a plot to murder Severus and Caracalla. Caracalla would have slain the hated praetorian prefect with his own hand, but his father forbade him to do so. Instead, Caracalla ordered a guard to run him through, and this time Severus did nothing to stop his son. Plautilla was exiled to the island of Lipari soon afterward. In 211, Septimius Severus died in the British garrison town of York. With Severus death, Plautilla lost any protection and became fair game for her bloodthirsty estranged husband. Caracalla became the most powerful Augustus and immediately sent assassins to murder Plautilla in A.
