Johannes 423 – 425 A.D.

Johannes was a high-ranking civil servant under Honorius. When the emperor died there was no clear and Johannes was proclaimed Augustus with the help and approval of a former Honorius general. Johannes’s title was immediately contested by Theodosius II who stood to gain politically by aligning himself with Constantius III’s widow, Galla Placidia, and her infant son Valentinian III. Accordingly, an army was sent to crush Johannes and he was captured, publicly ridiculed, mutilated and then executed.
