Historical background



Carausius had reigned since 286 when he was assassinated in 293 at the instigation of Allectus, in late spring or early summer. Allectus' reign lasted just under three years. Constantius prepares a great expedition at the end of 295 in order to reconquer England. The invading army lands in early 296 and Allectus is killed in a fight near opening London.
