Severus Alexander was the final member of the Severan dynasty. Cousin to Elagabalus, their grandmother, Julia Maesa, orchestrated Alexander's rise to the throne as co-emperor to his cousin, whose own rise Julia Maesa had also orchestrated. After Elagabalus's murder in 222, Alexander became sole emperor. Before Alexander's own murder in 235, he attempted to reverse the debasement of the denarius and was an active legislator, but ultimately he was killed by his troops in Germania, who believed that Alexander was too cowardly in battle to be emperor.
