Flavius Victor 384 – 388 A.D.

Not yet old enough to be in kindergarten, Flavius Victor was the unfortunate victim of a very brutal and violent age. His father Magnus Maximus named him co-Augustus soon after he was born and then was off on his quest to become the Western Emperor. Although he met with success initially, Maximus was no match for Theodosius once he made a concerted effort to oust him. Victor, on the other hand, was sent for after Maximus’s final defeat and was slain to end any possibility of future contests from this quarter.
