Severus2.jpg (5601 bytes)
Flavius Valerius Severus
Caesar 305-306
Augustus 306-307

Severus, a capable soldier and close friend of Galerius, became Caesar on the elevation of Constantius. After Constantius died, Severus became Augustus with Constantine as his Caesar. When Maxentius seized power in Rome, Severus was directed by Galerius to  march against Maxentius, but Maxentius (with the powerful assistance of his father Maximian) bribed the troops and they deserted the unfortunate Severus, who was then imprisoned and later executed.
