Storyboard Text

  • Hello there!
  • I do not have to work, so I'm heading to the bath to meet some friends!
  • My name is Aelia, age 21, wife of a patrician. My family is one of the elite patrician family and this means we help with the government. Even though I'm a teen mom, I was able to give birth to 2 sons.
  • I give my thank to the gods..
  • I am a patrician so I did not have to work to earn money because of our wealth. It was morning so I'm heading to the bath before the man does.
  • The bath was crowded by women, no man to be seen. I would spend times with my friends there.
  • Will that benefit the people?
  • -At the Senate with Aelia's husband-
  • After taking a nice relaxing bath, I have breakfast. I eat light meal like bread and wine for breakfast.
  • After breakfast, my trained slaves helped me with my clothes and hair. I do not dress myself, my trained slaves do everything for me.
  • We patrician women have more political rights than the plebeians and the other class. So when I was young, I was able to attend school.My daily tasks were to help the Senate and, because I was a woman, look after my children. But I was able to make my own business because of my wealth and social status.
