As the wife of Antoninus Pius, Faustina earned a mixed reputation for her purported fun-loving lifestyle and lack of gravity. The emperor himself wrote very fondly of Faustina, though other reports suggest that her debauchery were a source of grief for her husband. Antoninus Pius may even have suppressed many of the vicious rumors which circulated about his wife.
