Flavius Gratianus, son of Valentinian Ist, was raised by his father to the rank of Augustus in 367. On the death of Valentinian in 375, Gratian did not succeed to the sole sovereignty, as Valentinian II, his half-brother, was proclaimed Augustus by the troops. By the death of his uncle Valens in 378, the Eastern empire devolved upon him. Magnus Maximus was declared Emperor in Britain and crossed over to Gaul, where he defeated Gratian, who was slain A.D. 383.
