Nationality:  Roman
Occupation:  Emperor
Date of birth:  c.203
Period of rule:  218-222
Date of death:  222
Place of death:  Rome

Elagabalus was the cousin of and successor to Caracalla following a brief usurpation. He was noted for his unusual sexual and religious behaviours and issued coins in the names of the many often powerful women in his family, including his grandmother, Julia Maesa, who instigated the coup both for Elagabalus' elevation and his deposition. He is very poorly regarded in written sources.
