  • Notes 
    • the last ruler of a united Roman Empire

      Born Flavius Theodosius, as the son of a soldier, Theodosius was legally obliged to enter upon a military career. He seems to have served under his father during his expedition to Britain in 367/8
      Birth: ABT 346 in Causa, ESP
      Death: 17 JAN 395 in Milan, LAT (now ITA)
      Baptism: 380
      Note: at the hands of bishop Acholius of Thessalonica during the autumn of 380 when serious illness threatened his life
      Event: Military 367/68 Expedition to Britain
      Event: Emperor of Eastern Roman Empire Acceded BET 19 JAN 379 AND 395 Sirmian
      Note: Western Emperor Gratian appointed him to succeed his eastern colleague Valens who had been killed at the Battle of Adrianople on 9 August 378. The fact that Gratian chose him as his new colleague does not necessarily mean that he enjoyed a particularly good reputation as the best general of his day. Gratian had effectively been forced to choose him since he seems to have been the most senior officer of Roman birth available to him at the time.
      Event: Dux Moisae Prinae Acceded 374
      Event: Dux Valeriae Acceded 375
      Note: Regained his commission after the death of Emperor Valentinian I.
