Crispina (164 – 191) was the wife of Commodus and empress of the Roman Empire. Her father-in-law co-ruled with her husband, giving her the position of empress. She bore no children with Commodus. Even before becoming empress she was very wealthy, and her lavish wedding was honored on coinage. Crispina was commemorated with public images and was given the title of Augusta. Although she had no political power over Commodus, she held an important political position as empress.
Her fate was similar to that of Commodus’s sister, Lucilla. Sadly, in 188, Crispina was exiled to Capri upon charges of adultery by her husband, and was executed at the age of only 27.
