Historical background


MAXIMINUS II DAIA

(1/05/305-04/313)

Caesar

Maximin II, nephew of Galerius, became Caesar on May 1, 305. After the death of Constantius I Chlorus on July 25, 306, he did not become august and remained subordinate to Galerius. At the end of the Carnuntum conference in November 308, he was only Filius Augustorum, while Licinius I became august directly. It was not until the following year that Maximin II would take the title of august, a title recognized by Galerius only in 310. After Galerius' death in May 311, he was the oldest of the surviving tetrarchs. He falls out with Licinius and Constantine I, while he tries to get closer to Maxentius. After 312, Licinius turns against him. He is finally eliminated in 313.
