About Rupilia Faustina


Rupilia Faustina (c. 87-bef. 138) was an influential Roman noblewoman. She was the daughter of Salonina Matidia and suffect consul Lucius Scribonius Libo Rupilius Frugi Bonus. She possibly had another sister called Rupilia Annia.

Her mother’s maternal uncle was the Roman Emperor Trajan. Her elder half-sisters were Roman Empress Vibia Sabina and Matidia Minor. The sisters lived and were raised as a part of the household of Trajan, his wife Pompeia Plotina and her father. Roman Emperor Hadrian was her brother-in-law and third cousin.

Faustina married Marcus Annius Verus, who was a prefect in Rome and served as consul three times. Their children were:

  • Annia Galeria Faustina or Faustina the Elder, a Roman Empress who married Roman Emperor Antoninus Pius.
  • Marcus Annius Libo, a consul.
  • Marcus Annius Verus, a praetor who married Domitia Lucilla and became father to future Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius and his sister Annia Cornificia Faustina.
