Albucilla was the wife of Satrius Secundus, and was infamous for having had many lovers. In the last year of the reign of the emperor Tiberius, 37 AD, she was accused of treason, or impiety, against the emperor (Latin: impietatis in principem) along with Gnaeus Domitius Ahenobarbus, Vibius Marsus, and Lucius Arruntius. As a result, she was imprisoned by command of the senate after making an unsuccessful attempt to commit suicide.
