Julia Domna (c. 160 – 217 AD) was a Roman empress consort from 193 to 211. She was born in Emesa in Roman Syria to an Arab family of priests of the deity Elagabalus. In 187, she married Libyan-born Septimius Severus, who at the time was governor of the Roman province of Gallia Lugdunensis. They had two sons, Caracalla and Geta. A civil war over the Roman throne broke out in 193, and shortly afterward Severus declared himself emperor. The war ended in 197 with the defeat of the last of Severus's opponents.
As empress, Domna was famous for her political, social, and philosophical influence. She received titles such as "Mother of the Invincible Camps".
