Did you know that a woman was once the true power behind the Roman Empire? Julia Domna was a Roman empress born in Emesa, Syria, who lived between 160 to 217 CE. She was the wife of Roman emperor Septimius Severus and mother to the emperors Geta and Caracalla. Whilst her husband and then her son was emperor, Julia Domna exercised some power; the extent of it is still being disputed, but there is evidence for her receiving petitions, management of official correspondence and management the empire.
She was well-read and astute in political matters and surrounded herself with artists, scholars and thinkers, and gained the title “Mother of Camps” from 195 CE, due to her accompanying Severus on campaign, and eventually her title was extended to “Mother of Augustus, of the Camps, of the Senate and of the Country”. In 160 CE, Julia was born at Emesa, Syria and his last name, Domna, means “black”, which means to do with the sun god El-Gabal (Elagabalus), whose cult stone was black.
A cognomen is something like an extra name given to a Roman citizen; it was something personal which functioned a bit like a nickname, but was typically passed from father to son. Her family was a wealthy and politically well-connected one, and the site of Emesa was both an important religious and commercial center location . His father was a high priest of the sun god El-Gabal, and her older sister, Julia Maesa, she also ended up being the grandmother of two future Roman emperors – Elagabalus and Severus Alexander.
