Emperor Constantine's Three Sons Succeed Father as Co-Emperors

Emperor Constantius II

Constantine II, Constantius II, and Constans I, sons of Emperor Constantine the Great with his wife Fausta, all succeed their father as co-emperors.

Thus while Constantine reunited the Roman Empire under a single emperor, it is now split up again among three new Augusti.

Constantine II will only survive until 340, when his conflict with his brother Constans leads to his death. Constantius II will live the longest, until 361, when he is succeeded by Julian the Apostate.
