Constantius I, May 305 - 25 July 306 A.D.
In 296, Constantius Chlorus assembled two invasion fleets with the intent of crossing the English Channel. The first was under the command of Asclepiodotus, Constantius' long serving Praetorian Prefect. He sailed from the mouth of the Seine, and landed near the Isle of Wight, where his forces defeated the usurper Allectus in Hampshire. Constantius sailed with his fleet from Boulogne and occupied London, saving the city from an attack by Frankish mercenaries who were roaming the province.
