Roman emperor Constantius III (Flavius Constantius) dies suddenly. Although he has been emperor for just seven months and his position was contested by Theodosius II in the east, there is no evidence of foul play.

Constantius III was married to Galla Placidia, the sister of his co-emperor Honorius.

Because Honorius was such a bad leader whereas Constantius III was a very capable emperor and general, the Western Roman Empire would have benefitted greatly from his guidance; instead, the Germanic barbarian tribes will continue to grow more powerful. In just 55 years, the reign of the last emperor of the western Roman Empire will end.
