Plautilla (Died AD 212)

Plautilla was the daughter of the powerful Praetorian Praefect, Gaius Fulvius Plautianus, who virtually ran the government of Septimius Severus. Plautianus arranged with Severus the marriage of his daughter to Caracalla, without their consent. They were married in AD 202, and it proved disastrous. Soon after Severus died, Caracalla began to threaten that he would execute Plautilla and her father. Plautianus plotted the overthrow of the Severans, but was discovered and executed in AD 205. Plautilla was banished to Lipara and later strangled on Caracalla's orders in AD 212, following Severus' death.
