Julia Domna was the daughter of a Syrian priest of Elagabalus. She was married to Septimius Severus shortly before he became emperor. Julia was a political advisor to Severus during his reign, and the subsequent reigns of their sons, Caracalla and Geta. She committed suicide after Caracalla was murdered by a soldier; Geta had been murdered earlier by his brother. It is through Julia Domna's sister, Julia Maesa, that the so-called Severan dynasty was continued.
