Fulvia (fŭlˈvēə) [key], d. 40 B.C. Roman matron. She was wife, in turn, of Publius Clodius, Quintus Scribonius Curio, and (44 B.C.) Marc Antony, to whom she remained completely loyal. She had been attacked (in the Philippics ) by Cicero, and she pierced his tongue with a needle when his head was brought to Rome (43). She led a revolt in Antony's interest against Augustus. Her forces were defeated at Perusia (40 B.C.), and she died at Sicyon.
