Constantius I was nicknamed Chlorus ('the Pale'), and suceeded Emperor Maximianus to become co-emperor of the Second Tetrarchy in 305. He ruled as the Augustus of the West for just over a year, before falling ill and dying while leading a military campaign against the Pictish tribes in Britain. His son, Constantine, took control of his legions and claimed Imperial power by birthright. Constantine would eventually become the sole ruler of the Roman Empire and its first Christian emperor.
