Life as a Patrician's wife
This storyboard does not have a description.
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.
