Seller: davis-ancients (6,441) 100%, Location: Bothell, Washington, Ships to: US, Item: 223335877554 CONSTANTINE I (the Great), Roman Emperor 309-337 A.D. Constantine the Great is known as the father of the Constantinian Dynasty. He is known as the first emperor to convert to Christianity. Constantine had a part in issuing the Edict of Milan which proclaimed religious tolerance for all religions across the empire. Constantine was a very successful general starting with his defeat of two other emperors, Maxentius and Licinius, during civil wars. He then led successful campaigns against the Franks, Alamanni, Visigoths, and Sarmatians during his reign. He built a new imperial residence in the ancient city of Byzantium, renaming it Constantinople. This city would later be the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire for over 1000 years. As a result, Constantine was also known as the founder of the Eastern Roman Empire. Little is really known about Constantine's conversion to Christianity. It was his sons who used Christian iconography on some of their coins. There are two well-known stories about his vision of the cross in the sky before a big battle (starting the tradition of the use of the chi-rho symbol in military, state and religious events) and his deathbed baptism.
