Historical background


AURÉLIEN

(07/270-09/275) Lucius Domitius Aurelianus

Aurelian was born about 207 in Sirmium. After a distinguished military career, he was proclaimed august Sirmium after the death of Claudius II and remained sole emperor after the suicide of Quintillus. He took the painful decision to abandon Dacia in 271 and then attacked Zenobia Vaballath by seizing Palmyra in 272. Then he began the reconquest of the empire and conquered Gaul Tetricus at Chalons-sur-Marne. He triumphs in Rome and gives life to save his prisoners brand. He was assassinated when he was preparing a campaign against the Sassanids to reconquer Mesopotamia.
