Domitia was the daughter of Nero's famous general Corbulo. In 70 AD, Domitia was forced to divorce her husband and live on Domitian's estate. In 73 she bore him twins, a daugther and a son, the latter dying at the age of 2. She and Domitian married in 82 AD and divorced in early 83 AD, on rumors of adultery. Later in 83, a reconciliation was made, though Domitian continued to see his mistress. By 96, her life was in constant danger, as Domitian executed anyone suspicious of disloyalty. It is believed that she found her name on a list of people to be eliminated and took an active part in Domitian's assassination. After Domitian's death, Domitia retired into private life and lived until 150 AD.
