When Constantius died the next year, Maximian's son Maxentius took the western emperorship, and named Maximian to be his augustus.

Born from a poor family, Maximian made a career in the army until in 285 the new emperor Diocletian, a friend of his, made him caesar (sub-emperor), making him the ruler of the western part of the empire.
Maximian resolved the conflicts around this emperorship by defeating Severus and Galerius in battle and bringing Constantinus son Constantine on his side by having Constantine marry his daughter Fausta[?].
However, in 308 Maximian rebelled against his own son, and marched upon Rome, but was beaten and forced to withdraw to Constantine in Gaul.
Maximian. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05 (216 words)
Maximian abdicated with Diocletian in 305, but the death of Constantius in 306 brought confusion to the political scene—there was a struggle for power among Severus (d.307), Galerius, Constantine (Constantine I, son of Constantius), and Maxentius (son of Maximian).
Maximian plunged into the conflict, at first to aid his son in Italy; he captured Severus, repulsed Galerius, and won over Constantine, to whom he gave his daughter Fausta in marriage.
Then Maximian and Maxentius became enemies, and, having failed to depose his son, Maximian fled to Constantine and abdicated again (308).
