Julia Titi was the only child of Emperor Titus. She was married to Titus Flavius Sabinus, a cousin of her father, but Titus's brother, Domitian, became infatuated with Julia. Shortly after Domitian became emperor, he had Julia's husband executed, and then had her live in the palace as his mistress, despite the fact that he continued to be married to the empress Domitia. When Julia became pregnant in AD 91, it is alleged that Domitian forced her to get an abortion, which then resulted in her death.
