Jovinus, 411 - August 413 A.D.
Sebastianus Jovinus was of noble Gallic descent and was proclaimed emperor by a barbarian coalition, which was perhaps part of the Roman army, probably at Mundiacum (near Tongres, Belgium). His support included Burgundians, Alans, Alamanni, Franks, and for a short time the Visigoths. He and his brother, Sebastian, however, were captured by the turncoat Visigoths and surrendered to Honorius' officers. Their heads were delivered to Honorius at Ravenna on 30 August 413 A.D.
