The appointment of Diadumenian was, however, never confirmed by the Senate although a likeness of Diadumenian appears on some Roman coins. Macrinus was disliked by the nobles on account of his humble origin, and soon offended his army by trying to enforce discipline. A plot by Empress Julia Domna's sister, Julia Maesa was hatched to oust Macrinus and Diadumenian in favor of her grandson, Elagabalus. A rebellion broke out in the Syrian army, who proclaimed Elagabalus the Emperor. A battle took place, in which Macrinus was defeated and was put to death. Macrinus died 8th June 218 in Antioch, his young son Diadumenian followed the fate of his father. Diadumenian was just 10 years old. Elagabalus, yet another monster, ascended the throne.
