Historical background


MAXIMIEN HERCULES

(310)

Restitution by Constantine

Maximian, after a tumultuous life, committed suicide or was eliminated early in the year 310 after trying to murder his son, Constantine. This is Fausta, daughter of Maximian, who had also revealed the plot. Constantine used the image of his stepfather, still very popular among the military to restore her memory and bring it into the Constantinian family. Maximian was the grandfather of Constantine II, Constantius II and Constans.
