Roman Emperor Aemilian (253 AD)


Born Marcus Aemilius Aemilianus in Mauretania around 206 AD. He led his armies on a successful expedition across the Danube and was shortly thereafter hailed as emperor. He marched on Italy and defeated Gallus in May 253 AD. Soon after, Valerian was hailed Augustus by his own troops and Aemilian was forced to march north to confront him. Aemilian's troops soon saw that the forces of Valerian were far superior in size and they turned on Aemilian, killing him near Spoletium.
