Tetrarchy

The Age of Constantine

Constantine's Heirs

ConstColl.jpg (4143 bytes)

From the wreckage of the Tetrarchy emerged a commander of genius, the ruthless autocrat Constantine the Great. After his victory over Licinius, he ruled a reunited Empire until dying suddenly when he was about to invade Persia.

Constantine may be viewed from more than one perspective: the imperial saint who Christianized the Roman Empire, or the autocrat who doomed the empire, by changing its capital and stripping the frontiers to strengthen his field army. One thing is certain: he had more impact on the lives of those who followed him than any emperor save Augustus and Diocletian.
