Maxentius, February 307 - 28 October 312 A.D.

Maxentius was the son of Maximinianus, and a talented soldier. He was raised to the rank of Caesar on 28 October 306 A.D., by the Italians and Praetorian Guard in rebellion against Severus II. He quickly invited his father, who had been forced to abdicate, to resume rule. Although declared a public enemy at the famed Conference of Carnutum, Maxentius remained in control of Italy until 312 A.D. At the famous Battle of Milvian Bridge he fell from the bridge and drowned in the Tiber. His demoralized army was defeated by Constantine I.
