Historical Notes:
Annia Aurelia Galeria Lucilla was the daughter of Marcus Aurelius and Faustina Junior. She was bethrothed to Aurelius's co-emperor, Lucius Verus, at a young age and married him in 164 when she was about 16 years old. After the death of Verus and Aurelius, Lucilla participated in a plot to have her younger brother, the emperor Commodus, assassinated. The attempt on Commodus's life failed and Lucilla was exiled to the island of Capri, where she was later executed.
