2. Emporer Constatine "The Great" of Rome - was born on 27 Feb 0228 in Naissus,Serbia and died on 22 May 0337 . He was the son of Flavius Valerius Constantius.
Emporer Constatine married Empress Flavia Maxima Fausta. Empress Flavia was born in 0289. She was the daughter of Emporer Manimianus I Herculius. She died in 0326 .

Empress Flavia - Although both Constantine's and Fausta's specific dates of birth are subject to question, it is certain that he was her senior by fifteen or more years. Constantine's drive for sole power must have put a strain on the relationship on at least two occasions. In 310, when Maximian plotted against Constantine, Fausta revealed the plot, thus contributing to her own father's end.[8] On 28 October 312 Fausta's brother, the emperor Maxentius, suffered defeat and lost his life in the famous Battle of the Milvian Bridge. The next day his body was recovered from the Tiber River. Constantine had the severed head affixed to a pike and carried through the streets of Rome.[9] We do not know Fausta's reaction to this act of brutality.

Emporer Constatine - Having seen a vision of the Flaming Cross in the sky at noon, Constantine won a key victory over his rival at Tiber River's Mulvius Bridge 10-28-312. He became a Christian, granting toleration to the religion in the edict of Milan (313). From his victory at Chrysopolis (09-18-323) he ruled both the eastern and western Roman empires. He presided as sole emperor at the Council of Nicaea (325). He laid the foundation of the city of Constantinople in 326, establishing the imperial capital there; he was inaugurated there 05-11-330 as the city was dedicated to the Blessed Virgin. Christianity had become the state religion. Constantine was declared "Emperor" in 306 A.D. at Eboracum, now York, England. --Compton's on-line Encyclopedia, America On-Line, 5/95:
