FLAVIVS VALERIVS CONSTANTINVS was born about 272 in Moesia Superior to Constantius I and his first wife Helena. Constantine was with his father in Britain in 306 when Constantius died and he became Caesar. He became Augustus about 307, and overcame all Maximian, Maxentius, and Licinius to become the sole ruler of the Roman world in 324. He was the first Christian emperor, being converted as early as 312, but delaying his baptism until 337. He turned Byzantium into the magnificent city of Constantinople, and was buried there after dying of natural causes near Nicomedia on May 22, 337.
