Geta 211 – 212 A.D.

Geta, Caracalla’s brother and son of Septimius Severus, served as Caesar from 198 until his father’s death in 211. At this point he became Augustus, sharing the top slot with Caracalla. Caracalla, in turn, wanted none of this and prepared to rid himself of his unwelcome sidekick. Tricking Geta into a feigned peace summit to be convened on the neutral grounds of their mother’s residence, Geta was instead ambushed by a detachment of Caracalla’s troops and cold-heartedly slain as he desperately sought refuge in his mother’s arms.
