Roman emperor, 306-312. Son of the Emperor Maximianus Herculius and son-in-law of the chief emperor Galerius. He was elected by the senators and pretorians as the rival of Galerius, who endeavored in vain to crush him. He retained the imperial dignity after the conference of the Cresars in 307. He joined with Maximin, Emperor of the East, against Constantine, but was defeated by him in the battle of Milvian Bridge, during which he was drowned. His reign was stained with acts of cruelty and debauchery, although he put an end to the persecutions of Christians in Italy and Africa.
