In 306, the Roman Emperor Constantius Chlorus died while campaigning against the Picts beyond Hadrian’s Wall. He was succeeded by his son, Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus, known more commonly as Constantine I or Constantine the Great. He was declared emperor in Eboracum, capital of the province of Britannia Secunda, known today as York. Most of the Empire’s provinces accepted his rule.
The reign of Constantine I proved to be significant in Roman history. He achieved victories in civil wars against Maxentius and Licinius, became the sole ruler of the reunified Roman Empire, and succeeded in campaigns against enemy tribes such as the Goths, Franks, Alamanni, and the Sarmatians.
