Description

Details

In early 219, Julia Maesa, eldest sister of powerful Roman Empress Julia Domna, arranged for Cornelia Paula to marry her grandson, the new emperor Elagabalus. Their wedding was lavishly celebrated in Rome. In late 220, the debauched Elagabalus divorced her to marry the Vestal Virgina Aquilia Servera in a union that was considered scandalous. Julia Paula's date is unknown.
