General: Marcus Opellius Severus Macrinus Augustus was Roman Emperor from 217 to 218, reigning jointly with his son Diadumenianus. Originally a praetorian prefect under Emperor Caracalla, he organised the assassination of Caracalla in order to save his own life. His short reign comprising of cleaning up the messes of his predecessor came to an early end when he and his son were both separately assassinated so that the usurper Elagabalus could succeed them as Emperor.
