Interesting facts about the life of Constans
Obtain a fast overview of the times of the Roman Emperor Constans from the following facts and information about his life.  Constans was the youngest son of Constantine I and his second wife, Fausta. By 317, there were two joint emperors in control of the Roman Empire.

On 1 March 317, the two co-reigning Emperors jointly proclaimed three new Caesars.

Crispus, his half brother, the son of Minerva and Constantine

His young brother - Constantine II, the son of Fausta and Constantine

His first cousin Licinius, the son of Licinius by his wife Flavia Julia Constantia, the sister of the Emperor Constantine

Constans was far too young and inexperienced to hold any office at this time. As time elapsed the three sons of the late emperor, Constantine II, Constantius II, and Constans, as soon as their father was dead, put to death their two cousins, Hannibalianus and Dalmatius, with many more of their relatives. Only Gallus and Julian, the children of Julius Constantius, were left alive. The brothers then divided the empire in A.D. 337. Constantine II, the eldest brother, retained the new capital, Constans received the western provinces, while to Constantius was left Syria and the East. Sapor, king of Persia, invaded the Eastern provinces, and defeated the Romans in various battles. Meanwhile a quarrel broke out between Constantine and Constans, and the former, having invaded his brother's provinces, was defeated and slain in A.D. 350. Ten years afterward Constans was himself put to death by Magnentius, an ambitious soldier, who at once assumed the name of emperor.
