Description

Details

In 269, Postumus was murdered by his own troops, and the Gallic Empire, which depended on the force of his personality, began to crumble. Victorinus, who assumed control of the breakaway empire late in 269, was a fine military leader. He successfully repelled incursions by the new Roman Emperor, Claudius II, known by his moniker Gothicus.
