Gratian 367 – 383 A.D.

An early supporter of Christianity, Gratian vigorously and systematically rooted out paganism wherever he could and went so far as to refuse the title of Pontifex Maximus, the highest religious position, feeling that it belonged to a true religious leader. His early career was marked by his competent dealing with the troublesome barbarians north of Italy while later in his career he withdrew somewhat from his duties to spend his time hunting instead. He died at the hands of his own soldiers to avert a bloody civil war against Magnus Maximus who was fast approaching.
