Licinius I was proclaimed august directly following the conference Carnuntum 11 November 308. In 313, after the edict of Milan, he married the half-sister of Constantine, Constantia. 316 took place the first war between Constantine and Licinius, which ended with the death of Valens and the signing of a peace between the two august. April 1 317 were created three Caesars: Crispus, Constantine II and Licinius II.
