Emperor Caracalla reigning in the years 211-217 CE had a bad reputation among historians who were senators. It is mentioned that after the murder of his brother, the emperor let out a wave of terror against Geta’s followers, resulting in death of up to 20.000 people. Certainly, however, it should be emphasized that the son inherited from his father – Septimius Severus – commanding talent.
From 213 CE Carakalla successfully ran several campaigns, first defeating the Germanic tribe Alamanni. The following year, he defeated Dacians over the lower Danube.
