Member of the The Severans dynasty.

Coins for this issuer were issued from 193 until 217.

Severus took Julia as his second wife ca. 187, after consulting an astrologer who said she was destined to marry an emperor. She bore him two sons, Caracalla and Geta.

Julia was notorious for her many adulteries, and moreover had conspired against her husband. However, he did not divorce her. Julia was also known as a patroness of the arts, and continued her influence through the reign of her son Caracalla. She later contracted cancer and starved herself to death.
