Postumus.jpg (7104 bytes)
M. Cassianus Latinius
Postumus
Gallic Emperor
259-268

Commander of the Rhine legions, he rebelled in 259, ruling Gaul, Spain and Britain for nine years.  Confronting  Laelianus in 268, he refused to allow his troops to sack Mainz and was assassinated.

Usurpers:

Laelianus

Marius2.jpg (5141 bytes)
M. Aurelius Marius
Gallic Emperor

268
 

A blacksmith, he joined the Roman army and became an officer. On the death of Postumus he seized power, but was  assassinated after a very short reign (perhaps two or three days), supposedly  by a sword of his own manufacture.

Victorinus.jpg (5359 bytes)
M. Piavonius Victorinus
Gallic Emperor

268-270

Victorinus, an able soldier, succeeded Marius. Little is known about this reign; Spain broke away and Claudius II invaded Gaul, starting a revolt which Victorinus put down. He is said to have enjoyed seducing the wives of his officers, which led to assassination at the hands of one of his subordinates.

Tetricus.jpg (4549 bytes)
C. Pius Esuvius Tetricus
Gallic Emperor

270-273
Tetricus2.jpg (6606 bytes)
C. Pius Esuvius Tetricus II
allic Caesar

270-273

Tetricus succeeded Victorinus only to find himself presiding over a declining empire. When Aurelian invaded Gaul,  Tetricus abdicated and surrendered. Aurelian  gave him a position in the government of Italy, where Tetricus  spent the rest of his life in honorable retirement.

Caesar under his father, Tetricus II shared the radiate crown and so is commonly included in the lists of emperors. After the abdication of Tetricus I, his son also spent the rest of his days as a private citizen.
