Gnaea Seia Herennia Sallustia Orba Barbia Orbiana married Severus Alexander in 225, a marriage arranged by his mother Julia Mamaea. Julia grew jealous of the new empress and had her thrown out of palace in 227. Frightened, she took refuge with the Praetorian Guards, which Julia then called rebellion. Orbiana was exiled to North Africa and her father was killed. Alexander was supposedly fond of her but too influenced by his mother to save her.
