Cornelia (ca. 189-100 B.C.), was the daughter of Scipio Africanus (235-183 B.C.), Roman General who won the Battle of Zama against Hannibal. She married Roman politician Tiberius Sempronius Gracchus (d. 154 B.C.). Her sons Tiberius Sempronius Gracchus and Gaius Sempronius Gracchus ("the Gracches") tried unsuiccessfully to reform the Roman republic. Cornelia was acclaimed as the model of the Roman mother.
