Licinia was the daughter of Marcus Licinius Crassus, the brother of Publius Licinius Crassus (Marcus Crassus' father), who served as praetor in 107 BC. Living in Rome, she lived her life as a prominant noblewoman, being the cousin of the wealthiest man in Rome.
She became the mother of three children, two sons; Gaius and Lucius and a daughter, Tullia.
In 71 BC she witnessed several rebels in Spartacus' army being crucified along the Appian Way, showing her own slaves what would happen if they were disobedient
Like many Roman nobles, Licinia had little regard for slaves or the punishments inflicted on them. She was close to Tertulla, Crassus' wife.
Licinia was a beautiful woman with long blond hair and green eyes. She wore elegant blue and green dresses and wore a minimal amount of jewellery everywhere she went
