Septimian Severus                                                  
(193-211)  Severus was born in Leptis Magna in 146 AD. An outstanding general, he was proclaimed Emperor by his troops on reaction to the news that the Praetorian guard had sold the Empire to the highest bidder (Didius Julianus) He rapidly disposed of Julianus and one or two other potential rivals and set about improving the Roman Empire.  He did this conscientiously, but so keen was he to keep in the good books of his troops, he pampered his formidable forces, and relaxed their discipline to a farcical degree.  Despite this, they could still fight, and when the Scots invaded the northernmost territory of his Empire, he soon quelled the uprising and forced them to surrender a large part of Scotland in exchange for peace.  However he became extremely angry when they reneged on the deal, and so sent a new army to Caledonia with instructions, not to subdue the Scots, but to exterminate them.  However, before his orders could be put into force, he died in York on February 4th AD 211
