Details

Following the murder of his cousin Elagabalus, 13-year-old Alexander Severus became ruler of the Roman Empire in 222 CE. In this detailed reassessment of the young emperor’s controversial reign, McHugh sets the scene by surveying events during the previous three decades of the Severan dynasty. He then considers the influence of Alexander’s advisors, including his mother Mamaea; his military successes; and the failures that led to his assassination by mutinous troops.
