Flavius Valerius Constantius
Caesar 293-305
Augustus 305-306


Constantius [b. ca. 250], who according to his son Constantine was a Dardanian nobleman and descendant of Claudius II,  had a successful military career and married Maximian's step-daughter Theodora. While Praetorian Prefect, he was named Caesar in the West in 293, and within three years defeated first Carausius, then Allectus,   recovering Britain for the empire. Soon after he became Augustus upon the retirement of Maximian in 305, he died while on campaign in Britain. He is said to have named his eldest son Constantine as his successor.
