Historical background


DECENTIUS

(03/351-18/08/353)

Caesar

Decency, created Caesar by his brother Magnentius in March 351, remained in Gaul to defend the Rhenish Limes against the Frankish invasion fomented at the instigation of Constance with a view to opening a second front. Beaten, Decency locked himself in Sens where he committed suicide on August 18, 353.
