Helena Licinia (Helena Licinia Nerva Christina; b. 2 March 1976) is a Latin actress, best known for her role as Boudicea Dracoccisor in Maecenas. She was married to Louis Ferdinand, Prince of Liothidia, a pretender to the abolished Liothidian throne.

Licinia began her film career on the Aurum 24 teen drama television series Somnium Alba, portraying Maria Aurelia from 1992 until 1997, before going onto star in the short-lived RAL drama Lis in 1998. Since earning her role in FILM, Licinia has had major roles in several films including Anglesa (1999), Exiled (2001), and The Loweport 5 (2002). Licinia failed to gain any major roles in the mid-2000s. She rose to prominence in 2009 when she earned the lead role in Maecenas. In 2014, she became one of the highest paid actors on television, earning up to $2 million per episode of Maecenas.

Early life

Licinia was born and raised in Pola, Latium, the daughter of an accountant Maria (née: GENS) and Marcus Licinius, a sculptor and professor at the University of Pola. She is the oldest child of four, and has three younger brothers, including Michael Licinius, a footballer for Liga Premier side Internationalis Utica FC.

Career

Personal life

In 2003, Licinia married Louis Ferdinand, Prince of Liothidia. She first met Louis Ferdinand in 2000 after being introduced by mutual friend Zoe Verruscosi. Licinia was Louis Ferdinand's third wife, and she ceased acting after her marriage due to what she later said was "at her husband's request". She converted to Fabrian Catholic a month before her marriage to Louis Ferdinand. Licinia and Louis Ferdinand had one child together, Princess Victoria, who was born in 2004. The couple was subject to a series of public disturbances, with neighbors often calling the police due to the yelling and shouting at their suburban-Castellum home. She and Louis Ferdinand divorced in 2008.

In early 2011, Licinia began dating Latin footballer Flavius Vinicius. The pair split in 2013, after Vinicius was transferred to TEAM. She and Vinicius reconnected in 2014, later marrying in 2015. They have two children together, Marcus (born 2011) and Maria (born 2016).
