Septimius Severus, Lucius – (146-211 AD) – Roman emperor (193-211 AD)

Septimius Severus was a most remarkable emperor of Rome. Believed to have been black, he came from North Africa, and in a reign of some 17 years, achieved many conquests and administrative reforms.

Septimius Severus was a quaestor under Marcus Aurelius, and later became commander of the Roman forces in what is now Yugoslavia. When Commodus, the irresponsible son of Marcus Aurelius, was murdered in 192, a succession of generals persuaded their armies to elect them emperor, as when Nero died in 68 (p. 48). In the end, Severus was elected by his troops and succeeded in defeating his rivals.

Severus covered himself with military glory during his reign. He defeated the Parthians, for which an arch, still standing, was erected in the Roman Forum. He also defeated the Piets, and he died in York at the end of the campaign.
