Sabina, Augusta 128 - c. 136 A.D., Wife of Hadrian
Concordia Augusta ("Majestic Harmony") was honored for her role promoting understanding and marital harmony in the imperial household, but she did not serve Sabina well. Sabina is said to have remarked that she had taken steps to see she never had children by Hadrian because they would "harm the human race."
