Flavius ​​Valerius Aurelius Constantinus, born in Naissus in Moesia (today Niš in Serbia) on February 27th, 2721, was proclaimed 34th Roman emperor under the name Constantine I in 306 by the legions of Brittany (present south of Great Britain), and died on May 22nd, 337 after 31 years of reign, is a preponderant figure of the fourth century.

Emperor Constantine I led a deeply reforming military, religious and economic policy, which enabled him to reunite under his sole authority a weakened and divided Roman empire. He got rid of the emperors Maxence in 312 (battle of the Milvius bridge) and Licinius in 324 (battle of Adrianople). His reign saw the establishment of freedom of individual worship, which ended the persecution of Christians (edict of Milan, 313). He will provisionally put an end to the dissensions of the Eastern Churches by convening the Council of Nicée (325), and asserts his authority in the religious field: it is the caesaropapism. He established a stable currency (solidus, 312), developed the central administration, defended the borders of the Empire against the Franks, the Alamans, the Sarmates, the Goths and the Persians. In 330 he founded a new capital with his name, Constantinople (now Istanbul).
