Roman Empress from 178 to 188 as the consort of Roman Emperor Commodus.

Crispina was born and raised in Rome or Volceii. Crispina came from an illustrious aristocratic family and was the daughter of twice consul Gaius Bruttius Praesens and his wife Valeria. Crispina’s paternal grandparents were consul and senator Caius Bruttius Praesens and the rich heiress Laberia Hostilia Crispina, daughter of another twice consul, Manius Laberius Maximus. Her father’s family originally came from Volceii, Lucania, Italy and were closely associated with the Roman Emperors Trajan, Hadrian, Antoninus Pius and Marcus Aurelius. Crispina's brother was future consul Lucius Bruttius Quintius Crispinus.

Crispina married the sixteen year-old, Commodus in the summer of 178. Crispina's marriage failed to produce an heir due to her husband's inability. After ten years of marriage, Crispina was falsely charged with adultery by her husband and was banished to the island of Capri in 188, where she was later executed.
