Historical background


MAXIMINUS II

(1/05/305-04/313)

Augustus

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 conference of Carnuntum in November 308, it is only Filius Augustorum while Licinius I becomes august directly. It was not until the following year that Maximin II took the title of august. 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 and he is finally eliminated in 313.
