    ( -circa 508 BC)
    Cousin of Lucius Junius Brutus, founder of Roman Republic
    Raped by the son of the Roman king Lucius Tarquinius Superbus
    Stabbed herself to death after making her rape publicly known
    She killed herself even though her father and others pleaded with her not to.
    Her bloodied corpse was paraded throughout the streets of Rome to drum up animosity towards the monarchy.
    Depending on the source, details of her story vary greatly.
    She is often depicted nude, suggestively pointing a dagger at herself.
    She was assaulted by the king’s son as she slept while he was a guest in her home.
    She was known as Rome’s most virtuous matron.
    Her rape and suicide led to the overthrow of the monarchy and the creation of the Roman Republic.
    Her husband became part of Rome’s first pair of consuls (elected officials), along with Lucius Junius Brutus.
    Dante placed her in limbo alongside other worthy pagans in 'The Divine Comedy.'
