About Constantius III

  • Constantius III (Latin: Flavius Constantius Augustus) was Western Roman Emperor in 421, from 8 February until his death on 2 September.
  • He earned his position as Emperor due to his capability as a general under Honorius, achieving the rank of Magister militum by 411.
  • That same year, he was sent to suppress the revolt of Constantine III, a Roman general who declared himself emperor.
  • Constantius led his army to Arles in Gaul, the capital of Constantine III, and defeated Gerontius, a general rebelling against Constantine, before himself besieging Arles.
  • After defeating a relief force led by Edobichus, Constantius convinced Constantine to surrender, promising safe retirement, but betrayed and beheaded him as soon as he surrendered.
  • Constantius then went on to lead campaigns against various barbarian groups in Hispania and Gaul, recovering much of both for the Western Roman Empire.
  • Constantius was proclaimed Western Roman Emperor by Honorius on 8 February 421.
  • He reigned for seven months before dying on 2 September 421.
