Maxentius, the 58th Roman Emperor, was the son of emperor Maximian. When Constantine was declared Caesar, Maxentius rebelled and also claimed the imperial throne, with the support of the Praetorian Guard. This period, however, saw strife within his family and between the families of the Tetrarchs. After the death of Galerius, Maximian and Maxentius opposed Constantine and Licinius.
