Historical Notes:

Victorinus was a short-lived ruler of the Romano-Gallic Empire who succeeded another short-lived emperor, Marius.  Victorinus spent many months of his reign struggling to regain territory in south-east Gaul that had been lost to an army sent by the Roman emperor, Claudius Gothicus.  Upon returning to his base at Cologne after successfully beseiging the city of Autun, Victorinus was murdered by one of his own officers whose wife Victorinus had apparently seduced.
