Jovian 363 – 364 A.D.

Jovian succeeded Julian II as emperor when the latter died of battlefield wounds. The general realized that their army was on the brink of falling apart under the pressures of renewed attacks by the Persians who were deep within their own territory. Upon this analysis as well as the fact that supply columns could never hope to reach them effectively, he settled a truce with the Persians giving over all the territory the Romans had just won under Julian. Jovian died on the return from this episode as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning.
