Licinius I, 11 November 308 - 18 September 324 A.D.
Licinius I was a comrade of emperor Galerius in the Tetrarchic period. Following the abdication of Diocletian and Maximianus,
Licinius was raised to the rank of Augustus despite never having held the position of Caesar. After Maximinus II invaded his
territories, Licinius marched against him and defeated him soundly. Over the next few years, relations between Licinius and
Constantine I deteriorated. Armed conflict broke out several times and Licinius was defeated. Only through the intervention of
Licinius' wife, Constantine's sister, was his life spared. However, shortly after he was executed for additional political
machinations against Constantine.
