Valentinian III, 23 October 425 - 16 March 455 A.D.

Placidus Valentinian III was the weak-willed ruler of the Western Empire for thirty-three years. At six, he was made Caesar on 23 October 425 A.D. Dominated successively by his sister Galla Placidia, and then the famed General Aetius, Valentinian III exercised little power of his own. The only notable event of his reign was the defeat of Attila the Hun by Aetius at the Battle of Mauriacus. Valentinian was assassinated in 455 A.D.
