Maxentius was the son of Maximian Hercules and co-Emperor with Constantine. Maxentius was the emperor of the West and was jealous of the rising Constantine. In order to avenge his
father, who had put to death on the orders of Constantine, Maxentius declared war on Constantine in 310. The world famous battle of the Milvan Bridge (October 28, 312) at the very gates of Rome,
decided the fateful conflict. The victory marked the end of the power of Maxentius and was
hailed by pagans and Christians alike, all were glad to be rid of the tyrant.
