Julia Domna (AD 160-217) was a Roman empress of Syrian origins, the second wife of Septimius Severus (reigned 193-211). She was born in Emesa in the Roman province of Syria, into a family of priests of the deity Elagabalus. As a powerful political figure and member of the imperial family, Julia received titles such as "mother of the army camps".
She was famous for her political influence. After Severus' death in 211, his two sons with Julia, Geta and Caracalla, ruled jointly over Rome.
Geta was assassinated later that year. Julia continued to have a powerful role during the reign of Caracalla. Julia is thought to have committed suicide in 217 upon hearing of the assassination of Caracalla. After her death, her older sister Julia Maesa successfully contended for political power.
