Sabina Augusta (128-137 CE)
Hadrian's long-suffering wife, Sabina, was Trajan's grand-niece (q.v.). She endured poor relations with her husband (whom she married in 100 AD), though she appears on many of his coins. Hadrian's biographer notes that:
"Septicius Clarus...and Suetonius Tranquillus [the biographer of the first twelve Caesars]...[Hadrian] replaced, because they had at that time behaved in the company of his wife Sabina, in their association with her, in a more informal fashion than respect for the court household demanded. He would have dismissed his wife too, for being moody and difficult."
(Life of Hadrian, Scriptores Historiae Augustae).
Sabina died without children. Her ashes were ultimately buried with Hadrian's at his mausoleum (now the Castel Sant'Angelo).
