CAracalla was Roman emperor from 198 AD to 217 AD. He was the son of Septimius Severus and Julia Domna. In the beginning of his reign, Caracalla ruled jointly with his father, Septimius Severus, until he died in 211. Caracalla then ruled jointly with his brother, Geta. However, both brothers wanted sole reign and tensions rose. At the reconciliation meeting that their mother arranged, Caracalla had Geta assassinated by soldier loyal to him. Geta is said to have died in the arms of his mother.
When the inhabitants of Alexandria heard of Caracalla's claims that he had killed Geta in self-defense, they produced a satire mocking him. In 215, Caracalla savagely responded to this insult by slaughtering 20,000 of its citizens. He became one of the most notorius and despised emperors of the Roman Empire
