Historical background


CONSTANTIUS II

Augustus

Constantius II was born on August 7, 318 in Sirmium. He was raised to the cesarat on November 8, 324 at the age of six. He will reign 37 years, one of the longest reigns of the 4th century. After having crushed the revolt of Magnentius, he was alone august with a Caesar, Constance Galle, whom he had executed in 354. On November 6, 355, he elevated his cousin Julian to the title of Caesar. He went to Rome in 357, then to Sirmium, which he made his capital. Faced with the Sassanid danger, he left this region in 359 and settled in Antioch. Julien is proclaimed august in February 360. Constantius dies on November 3, 361, leaving Julien at the head of the Empire.
