Constans (337 - 350CE)

Constans (22 May 337 - 350CE). Flavius Julius Constans was the youngest son of Constantine and Fausta. He became Augustus together with his brothers Constantine II and Constantius II upon his father's death on May 22, 337. Constans and his brothers disposed of all their father's relatives who may have had a claim to the throne and divided the empire among themselves. He defeated his brother, Constantine II, and took over his territory. His cruelty, homosexuality and ineptness at government lost him support of his legions, and was assassinated by Magnentius' troops.
