August (05/238-03/244)

Gordian III is the grand-son of Gordian I and Gordian II's nephew, ephemeral emperors of the year 238. At the request of the people of Rome, he was chosen by Cesar Balbin and Pupien and their successor after their murders. Emperor at age 13, married at 16, killed at 19, that's how could sum up the life of this young man who was the victim appetites of Philip the Arab, new praetorian prefect.
