Unlike his younger half-brothers, Constantine’s eldest son Crispus was not born ”in the purple“—that is, his father was not emperor when he was born—so he was not a spoiled child. Indeed, his upbringing was similar to Constantine’s own. Thus it is no surprise that Crispus, named Caesar at age 17 and given control of the Gallic lands, proved himself in battles with the Goths.
