Historical background


AURELIAN

(07/270-09/275)

Aurelian was born around 207 in Sirmium. After a brilliant military career, he was proclaimed august at Sirmium after the death of Claudius II and remained sole emperor after the suicide of Quintille. He made the painful decision to abandon Dacia in 271, then attacked Zenobia and Vaballath by seizing Palmyra in 272. Then, he undertook the reconquest of the Gallic Empire and defeated Tetricus at Châlons-sur-Marne. He triumphs in Rome and saves the life of his famous prisoners. He was assassinated when he was preparing a campaign against the Sassanids in order to reconquer Mesopotamia..
