Septimius Severus was a clamant to the imperial throne in the aftermath of the successive assassinations of Commodus, Pertinax, and Didius Julianus, in opposition to Pescennius Niger and Clodius Albinus, during the year known as 'the year of the five emperors'. Severus ultimately came out on top, first defeating Niger, then seeing that his erstwhile ally and Caesar, Albinus, was removed as a threat. Severus was a military man from Libya, who concerned himself mostly with the militaristic maintenance of the Empire's borders, the cost of which may have been a factor in the debasement of the denarius in this period. When Severus died on campaign in Britannia in 211, he was succeeded by his sons, Caracalla and Geta.
