Historical background


(07/253-08 or 09/268)


Gallien, the son of Valérien I, was born in 218. He was immediately associated by his father with power and was in charge of the West, while his father went to the East. He won a brilliant victory over the Germans and consolidated the Rheno-Danubian limes. After the capture of Valérien in the East, Gallien must face on all fronts. The empire breaks up. Gaul, Spain, Germania and Brittany secede with Postum who first eliminated Salonin, the son of Gallien. It is the usurpation of Macrianus and Quietus in the East. Gallien will spend the last eight years of his life trying to put the pieces of this empire back together. Finally, he was assassinated in September 268 under the walls of Milan while besieging Aureolus, the master of the Cavalry, who had revolted.
