The details (from wikipedia)


Sulpicia Praetextata (/sʌlˈpɪʃə/) was an ancient Roman noblewoman who lived in the Roman Empire in the 1st century.

Family background

Praetextata was a member of the gens Sulpicia. She was the daughter of Quintus Sulpicius Camerinus Peticus, suffect consul in 46 and an unnamed mother. Her brother was Quintus Sulpicius Camerinus Pythicus, who was of consular standing.

Marriage, issue and life

Praetextata married Marcus Licinius Crassus Frugi who served as a consul in 64. He was one of the four sons born to the Roman Politician Marcus Licinius Crassus Frugi and Scribonia.

Praetextata bore Frugi the following children:

Frugi was executed by the Roman emperor Nero between 66 and 68, because of information brought against him by Marcus Aquilius Regulus. After the death of Frugi, Praetextata brought her children to a Roman Senate meeting in 70 early in the reign of Roman emperor Vespasian, seeking vengeance for her husband’s death. Regulus with his associated political circle was prosecuted by the Roman Senate. After this moment no more is known on Praetextata.
