Julia Domna, wife of African roman emperor Lucius Severus
When the Emperor Pertinax was killed by the mutinous soldiers at Rome, Severus, who was then governor of Upper Pannonia, was proclaimed emperor at Carnuntium by the legions on the Danube. The fact that the leaders of the troops in the eastern and western parts of the empire were at once ready to follow him is evidence that Severus himself had shared in the conspiracy against the dead emperor.
Fight near Nisibis. Herodian does not mention how Severus expelled the Parthians and lifted their siege of Nisibis.
Lucius Septimus` victory coin
Severus captures Ctesiphon. Herodian appears to have understood this as a picture of the siege of Hatra ("engines of every type were brought up to the wall")
This coin commemorates the victories of Septimius Severus over the Picts in what is now Scotland. These victories led to the construction of the Severan Wall, north of the more-popular Hadrian's Wall.
He rebuilt and restored Hadrian's Wall and gave Britain a century of peace; throughout his life he never lost his taste for African cooking. When he first entered Britannia, he was welcomed and hailed as the deliverer from the Gauls and Germans who continually pillaged and ravaged the island.
He quickly drove the aliens back across the English Channel, and gave Britannia semi-autonomous home rule status. In 208 AD, he supervised, refurbished, repaired and upgraded the mechanical defence system of Hadrian's Wall. In 211 AD, Septimus Severus died in York, of pneumonia at the age of 64.
