Historical background



Vetranio commander in Illyria, was immediately proclaimed after the death of Constans. Constantia, the sister of Constance and the widow of Hanniballien, convinced him to accept the purple. Magnence tried to negotiate with Vetranio which eventually rallied to Constantius II. He abdicated before the emperor on December 25 350 and retired to Prusa in Bithynia, where he died in 356.
