Saint Susanna De Tavium lived in Rome during the first half of the 3rd century. She was the niece of Pope Gaius and was the daughter of a priest named Gabino, whom the Church venerates as a saint.
The family of the Emperor Diocletian wanted to marry her to her adopted son Maximilian, but she refused. Asked why, Susana confessed that, being a Christian, she could not marry a pagan unless he converted. The emperor's anger was indescribable, so he ordered her to be reconsidered using any method.
Her close friends and family tried to change her mind, but to no avail. Finally, the emperor had her beheaded. His remains were embalmed and his corpse was buried thanks to the Empress, who had great affection for her.
She is remembered as one of the first martyrs in history.
