Historical background



Consecration of Licinius I.

Galerius died in terrible suffering Lactantius attributes to the wrath of God to punish him for his role in the great persecution against the Christians. Galley was not late. Only Licinius I and Maxentius returned them his memory. After removal of Maxentius, Licinius, approaching Constantine, broke the last ties that bound Galerius. Galeria Valeria, wife of Galerius and Diocletian's wife, driven by Licinius, found refuge with Maximin Daia II who was preparing to face Licinius. Maximin, fought on April 30 Tzirallum died at Tarsus during the summer 313. Shortly after, Galeria Valeria will be liquidated at the instigation of Licinius.
