Carausius and Allectus Severus II Maxentius Maximinus II Licinius

Diocletian realized that one emperor and one field army could not simultaneously deal with all the threats facing the empire, and established a system whereby two emperors and two Caesars divided the empire into four commands. This worked very well while Diocletian was emperor, but after he retired, the successor tetrarchs fought among themselves until Constantine emerged as sole ruler.
