Constantine II

337 - 340 A.D.

Constantine II was the oldest son of Constantine I and inherited all the Western portions of the empire except for Africa and Italy. Not content with this much he bullied his brother Constans and tried wresting these possessions away from him. When Constans had had enough and cut off communications with Constantine the elder reacted by bringing his army into Northern Italy. But Constans had anticipated these events and was well-prepared to meet him. Caught off-guard by this counter-offensive, Constantine was killed in the fight and his possessions became Constans'.
