Description

Together with Caracalla's reputation as a tyrant and murderer of his brother, his grim portrait dominates the picture of this important Roman Emperor. But Caracalla cannot only be connected to tyranny, fratricide and brutality, he also has to be seen in context with the severan heyday, the bestowal of citizenship to all residents of the Roman Empire in 212 AD and the victorious campaign against the germanic tribes exactly 1800 years ago.
