Interesting facts about the life of Hannibalianus
Obtain a fast overview of the times of the Roman Emperor Hannibalianus from the following facts and information about his life. Hannibalianus was the son of Flavius Dalmatius, the brother of Constantine the Great and therefore the nephew of this famous emperor. Constantine the Great requested the family of his brother Flavius Dalmatius to join him in his new capital at Constantinople. Delmatius and his brother Hannibalianus were clearly held in high favor by the emperor. In 335AD Hannibalianus eventually married Constantine's elder daughter, Constantina and was made nobilissimus, a title often used to refer to the designated heir. At the start of the campaign of Constantine against the Persians, Hannibalianus was made Rex Regum et Ponticarum Gentium, "King of the Kings and of the Ponthic People". But the campaign never happened as Constantine the Great died in May 337. On 9 September 337 Constantine II, Constantius II, and Constans succeed their father Constantine the Great and rule as co-emperors of the Roman Empire. Later that month a number of descendants of Constantius Chlorus, the brother of Constantine the Great, as well as many nobles and officials of the Roman Empire, were executed. Hannibalianus and his brother Delmatius were included in these murders. Responsibility for this purge was denied by the three brothers, although the events which occurred during their rules point to ruthless and blood thirsty actions.
