Synopsis: Caracalla cuts a murderous path through Rome, and provokes a dangerous war with Parthia. After his murder, Julia Domna is forced to contend with a would-be usurper. “Julia Domna deserved all that the stars could promise her. She possessed, even in advanced age, the attractions of beauty, and united to a lively imagination a firmness of mind, and strength of judgement, seldom bestowed on her sex. Her amiable qualities never made any deep impression on the dark and jealous temper of her husband; but in her son’s reign, she administered the principal affairs of the empire, with a prudence that supported his authority, and with a moderation that sometimes corrected his wild extravagancies.” - Edward Gibbon, History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Volume 1, Chapter 6http://s407341505.onlinehome.us/Episode_B33_Semiramis.mp3 The Bloodline Family Tree – Part Ihttp://s407341505.onlinehome.us/B33_Bloodline01.pdf The Bloodline Family Tree – Part II http://s407341505.onlinehome.us/B33_Bloodline02.pdf. . .
