Valentinian was a stout, brave, rough man of limited education but strong faith, a soldier named emperor. As soon as he reached Constantinople, he divided the Empire with his brother Valens, whom he left to rule the East, while he himself went to govern the West, chiefly from Milan. Emperors by now were not fond of living at Rome, partly because the remains of the Senate interfered with their full grandeur, and partly because there were old customs that were anathema to the Christian faith. When Valentinian was angry he could be cruel; according to lore, he kept two bears to whom criminals were thrown.
