Antipope Eulalius is rejected by Emperor Honorius in favor of Pope Boniface I.

Eulalius had been elected before Boniface and also had the support of Constantius. He even had the support of Emperor Honorius at first, but the supporters of Pope Boniface I were committed to change the results and convinced Honorius to reconsider his decision.

Because Eulalius failed to obey Honorius' instructions, thinking perhaps that he was independent of the Roman government, he was ultimately rejected; on this day Honorius formally recognizes Boniface as pope.
