These sons of Septimius Severus and Julia Domna were very different. Although Caracalla was only 11 months older than Geta, he was still the first born son, and Caracalla definitely reaped the benefits. Severus was a soldier emperor, and it seemed that Caracalla was groomed to fit this mold. He helped his father lead legions in trouble spots in the provinces. Geta surround himself with philosophers and intellectuals and handled administrative matters at Home.
