Constantine II, (February 317 - 340), was Roman Emperor (337 - 340). The eldest son of Constantine I the Great and Fausta, he was born at Arles in present day South of France.

Following the death of his father in 337, Constantine II became joint Emperor with his brothers Constantius II and Constans.

His section of the Empire was Gaul, Britain, Spain and part of Africa. In 340 he marched against Constans, in an attempt to take Italy, but was defeated at Aquileia and died in battle. Constans came to control his deceased brother's realm.

Decius and Herennius were killed in battle by the Goths in 251 -- the only Roman Emperors to die in battle (against external enemies) besides Julian (against the Persians, 363), Valens (against the Goths again, 378), Nicephorus I (against the Bulgars, 811), and Constantine XI (with the fall of Constantinople to the Turks, 1453).
The result of the conference was the demotion of Constantine to Caesar (again), the appointment of Lincinius as Augustus, the second retirement of Maximian, and the declaration of Maxentius as an outlaw.
Constantine's Empire went to his three sons, who might have shared it with their cousins, but killed them instead.
