The Black Emperors of Rome: Roman Emperor Caracalla (Kara-kalla)

Ivory Bust of Emperor Caracalla: British Muesum
Emperor Caracalla – By Oguejiofo Annu

It was Bob Marley who sang that “2000 years of history could not be wiped away so easily.”

Lucius Septimius Bassianus (April 4, 188 – April 8, 217), commonly known as Caracalla, was a Black Roman Emperor who ruled from 211 to 217.

Caracalla was the eldest son of Septimius Severus, the first black African-born Emperor of Rome. But before Septimius Severus, there had been other Roman-born black Emperors of Rome. This story of the other black emperors of Rome will be explored in another write-up, but for now we focus on Caracalla.

Unlike his father Septimius Severus, Caracalla was born and raised in Italy. After the death of his father, he ruled jointly with his younger brother Geta until the latter’s death in 211.

Caracalla’s reign was notable for the Constitutio Antoniniana, granting Roman citizenship to freemen throughout the Roman Empire. That act laid a foundation for a peaceful multi-ethnic, multi-cultural Empire that Rome was to become.

Caracalla was mean towards the military incursions of the Goths, the Parthians and the Tartars, and he took brutal and extreme steps to suppress those invaders from Turkemenistan that were sorely troubling the cohesion of the Roman state.

A modern-day British historian Edward Gibbon, a descendant of the Goths, referred to him as, “the common enemy of mankind” because of the massacres he authorized in various parts of the empire.

In AD 213, Caracalla went north to the German frontier and subdued the Alamanni tribesmen who were causing trouble in the Agri Decumates. Due to that feat the Senate conferred upon him the title of “Germanicus Maximus”.

In AD 216, Caracalla took on the Parthians, a related tribe of the Goths, (the Parthians are the ancestors of the modern day Farsi-Iranians) who were causing problems on the southernmost flank of the empire. He tricked the Parthians into believing that he accepted a marriage and peace proposal, but then launched a series of blistering attacks on the Parthians when their guards were down. The thereafter ongoing conflict and skirmishes became known as the Parthian war of Caracalla.

The baths of Caracalla were the largest public baths ever built in ancient Rome. To put it in historical perspective, the central room of the baths was larger than St. Peter’s Basilica. It could easily accommodate over 2,000 Roman citizens. The bath house opened in 216, complete with libraries, private rooms and outdoor tracks. Caracalla ordered the building of those baths that are named in his honour.

Caracalla was assasinated by his body-guard while travelling from Edessa to continue the war against Parthian. He died on April 8, AD 217.

It is important that Africans should remember and celebrate Caracalla and his family line, i.e. the Severan Dynasty, because as black Africans, they were us and we are them.

By the dint of their heritage, they were part of our legacy, and their attainments represented part of our unfolding tale of greatness, of towering historical achievements, of courage, regency and inimitable genius.

The descendants of the Goths who conquered Rome, and now control historical narratives, would want you to believe that they were the real Romans. Through centuries of selective narration and faking of historical artefacts, they have largely succeeded in hiding the central role of the Africans in the defunct Roman empire.

They hide the facts that the Goths and the Parthians (the ancestors of the present day Germans, Russians, British, Spanish, Italians, and Iranians…the Aryans!!!) were the mortal enemies of the dark Ibero-Maurisian Romans, Greeks, Egyptians, Libyans, and Numidians, Mauritanians, and Saharans, the original owners of western Europe. They promote a fake and false notion that Rome was a so-called white created civilization affiliated with their Gothic ancestry. But this is a lie!

Black Roman Emperor Karakala
The memorials of Caracalla, Septimius Severus, Geta, Maximinus, and a long line of Black, Moorish, African Emperors of Rome reject this lie. We must revisit the Roman Empire and salvage the Black ancestors and Emperors that have been covered by the global western academic conspiracy.

Again we chant, blessings on the memorial of the Severan Dynasty, they were the “naigre” Emperors of Rome, from Africa. We will be meeting more Black Roman Emperors in the next series.

    A group of Black Africans called the Grimaldi discovered the continent currently known as Europe some 44,000 years ago. Over a period of several centuries they traveled from the Cape of South Africa, to Spain, Italy and France, since at that time it was possible to walk on dry land as the Straits of Gibraltar did not yet exist. Many stopped along the way to settle and? develop tribes and nations, and after reaching Europe, the Grimaldi scattered throughout Switzerland, Bulgaria, Southern Europe and Brittany, which is today’s England, Wales and Scotland.

    There are only Africans… and descendents of Africans.

    Rome spanned a period of about 1000 years. 2000 if you count the Byzantine empire along with it. It orginated from a founded village of dejected citizens in an Italian backwater, evolved to an etruscan-dominated monarchy, to an expanding republic fighting wars all over Europe, Africa and Asia, to a principate and finally a dominate, when the decline and invasians began. No blacks insight for the first couple of hundred years. In fact when blacks first came in sight they were fought and soundly beaten in the Punic wars (Hannibal).
    Thereafter Rome dominated the Mediterranean, and made provinces all over, including Africa. From the Principate onwards, emperors were originated from all over the Empire, including Africa. There were a number of African-originated emperors, such as you mention, but also Brit ones, Syrian ones, Gaul, Greeks, Iberians, you name it, they all ruled Rome at one time or another. If you researched the dynasties, you know this, and omitted it willingly.

    To just highlight the Emperors you like particularly, who comprises about 4-5% of the time the alotted total time the Western Roman Empire existed, is falsification of history. Just the thing you reproach other people to do.

    1. Liederik

      I agree with your assessment of the age of the Roman Empire and the fact that other Emperors with different ethnicities ruled Rome. But that fact is well known.

      What is not known by Muurish children is the fact that there actually were scores of Muurish Roman Emperors. That part was blanked out of history. The half that was never told.

      On Rasta Livewire, our job is to bring out that half of history that was never told, and utter it boldly.



      1. Please provide a primary source that supports this lie of Moorish Byzantine era Roman Emperors. I’ve studied Byzantine era history and if they were Moors they would have been referred as that. The idea that Manuel and John Comnenus were both black Moors is ignorant. As an ethnic Greek stop trying to steal our heritage. Blacks were part of the Empire as a minority.

  7. To my knowledge there was the mainly Severine Dynasty. Septimius Severus, who began the dynasty, was born in the northern part of Africa. He was part Roman and part Berber. So he would have had a dark complexion and carried that onwards. After that the occasional african indeed takes hold of power, but no more dynasty.

    I’m totally in agreement with your intention to indicate that Roman emperors were for the most part , not Roman. And since Africa took up about 1/3 of the empire, no surprise that a good amount originated there. But how african is african? Is the criterion cultural or genetic?

    You must acknowledge the fact that the Roman Empire is, in fact, Roman, and that their culture determined the shape and quality of all citizens. Including africans. There was enrichment back and forth, but the Roman aspect stayed dominant. Africa was romanized, Rome was not africanized. I think, and I hope you’ll agree, culture matters more than race. Race shouldn’t matter.

    1. The information I have is that Romans were no great innovators of culture. They mostly copied the so-called Hellenistic and Egyptian high culutres. Yes, Rome may have conquered physically but she was conquered culturally. I will show you why.

      The religion of the Romans, their gods, their rites came mostly from Egypt. There were 5000 year old Egyptian equivalent of Roman gods, before Rome was built.

      The cultural centre of the Roman Empire was Egypt, specifically Alexandria. There one had the books, the rites, the tradition and the ancient mystery disciplines that had been honned and developed thousands of years before Rome.

      The Greeks who heavily influenced Rome, were at the outset a colony of Egyptians and Phoenicians (neighbours to Egyptians) all from Africa. Greek language, culture and so-called attainments all came from Egypt, contrary to what you may have been told in government schools. Try find the books written by Martin Bernal, George J. James: Stolen Civilization, to understand this very point.

      Finally, Rome started off as a colony of the Kartha Hadashians (Carthage), if you were to parse the history very well. It was the influence of the Carthaginians that made Rome. Rome later got its independence and even eventually destroyed Carthage. Yet, Carthage had a thousand years of high culture and pre-eminence before Rome was born.

      Even Ethiopia and Sudan greatly influenced Rome because it was from therein that the first Christian monks reached Rome and established the monastic culture, which eventually was key to the civilization of the entire Europe.

      You have to stand on the shoulders of giants to be a giant. The Carthaginians, the Egyptians, the Ethiopians, the Sudanese, were all great African nations, pre-eminent in culture and sciences of their time, waaaay before Romans could read and write.

      The Roman numerals, the Roman alphabets, Roman architecture, Roads, system of justice and government, all came from African nations who were in existence thousands of years before Romans knew the meaning of civilization.

      So who civilized the other? The Muurs civilized Rome, and the entire Europe. The Muurs are known today as blacks, the Ethiopians, the Sudanese, the African Americans, Jamaicans, South Africans and Nigerians.

      The half that was never told, is what Rasta Livewire is uttering boldly!
