Lucius Septimius Severus
Emperor 193 - 211

Born 146, Severus was an outstanding soldier who commanded in Pannonia when Commodus was overthrown. Loyal to Pertinax, after the auction of the Empire to Julianus he was proclaimed Emperor by his troops, marched on Rome, then spent four years disposing of his rivals Pescennius Niger and Clodius Albinus. His reign was largely devoted to campaigning and visiting the provinces, and the last three years were spent in Britain where he died on campaign February 4, 211.
