Historical background


CONSTANCE GALLE

(Winter 15/03/351- 354) Flavius Claudius Julius Constantius Gallus

Caesar (351-354)

Constance Galle was named Caesar on March 15 351 to meet the usurpation of Magnentius. He married Constantia, the sister of Constantius II, and was sent to the East to stabilize the situation facing the Sassanids threatening. Located in Antioch, he proved brutal and uncompromising. To the fear of a revolt of the East, Constance recalled, had him arrested and beheaded in Illyria at the end of the year 354.
