The settlement was founded by the Romans and initially named Drobeta (Empire's Dacia Province). Near Turnu Severin are the ruins of Trajan's Bridge - Roman Empire's largest - where Danube River has width of approx 1200 m (4000 ft). The Bridge was constructed in three years (103-105 AD) on 20 wooden pillars of stone blocks and had length 1135 m (3724 ft), width 14,6 m (48 ft) and height 18,6 m (61 ft). For its building were used approx 200 hectares of an oak forest. Its 20 arches were supported by stone pillars, of which only 2 remain (visible only at low water levels).

Drobeta was declared town in 121 AD and had population around 14,000. In late-2nd-century (193 AD) it was ranked "colony" with which its citizens received rights equal with Rome's citizens.
