Historical background


VICTORINUS

(10-11/269-09/271)

Victorin spent his entire career under the reign of Postumus, of whom he was one of the main civil collaborators. He succeeds Marius, who died just after Postumus. Victorin definitively loses Spain at the beginning of the reign and has to face seditions in Brittany and Gaul. The siege of Autun, a university town in Gaul, lasted seven months. Shortly after, Victorin was assassinated in Cologne by one of his officers, a jealous husband, when he had just restored order in Gaul with the capture of Autun. His mother, Victorine, continues to play an important role in choosing the successor of her son, Tétricus..
