Caracall: Marcus Aurelius Severus Antoninus Augustus; 4 April 188 – 8 April 217, ruled as Roman emperor from 198 to 217 AD. He was a member of the Severan dynasty, the elder son of Septimius Severus and Julia Domna. Co-ruler with his father from 198, he continued to rule with his brother Geta, emperor from 209, after their father’s death in 211. He had his brother killed later that year and reigned afterward as sole ruler of the Roman Empire. Caracalla’s reign featured domestic instability and external invasions by the Germanic peoples.
