Maxentius was the son of Maximian, the former emperor and Diocletian’s chief Lieutenant. He was one of many rival emperors of this period before the final triumph of Constantine the Great, who defeated him at the Battle of Milvian Bridge, during which Maxentius was drowned in the River Tiber in the ensuing panic as the remains of his army tried to flee across a rickety wooden bridge.
The defeat of Maxentius was ascribed by Constantine as due to the divine intervention of the Christian God, and was therefore an important event in the Christianisation of the Empire.
