Historical background


CONSTANTIUS GALLUS

(3/15/351-winter 354)

Caesar

Constance Galle was named Caesar on March 15, 351 to respond to the usurpation of Magnentius. He marries Constantia, Constance II's sister, and is sent to the East to stabilize the situation against the threatening Sassanids. Installed in Antioch, he is brutal and intransigent. Faced with the fear of a revolt from the East, Constantius called him back, had him arrested in Illyria and beheaded at the end of the year 354.
