Topic: Maximinus II


  
  Maximinus II Daia
Maximinus II Daia was born on 20 November AD 270 in the Danubian region as the son of a sister of Galerius.
Maximinus II Daia is described by ancient historians as a vicious, boorish, uneducated tyrant.
Maximinus II had strengthened his position by the occupation of Asia Minor but hoped most of all to find an ally in Maxentius who controlled Italy and was also a traditional pagan.

 Maximinus II   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Maximinus II Maximinus II (Daia) Caesar A. 305 - 308 Roman Emperor A. When the Roman Emperor Galerius ascended the throne upon the abdication of Diocletian and Maximianus, he appointed Maximinus Daia as his Caesar in the East to replace him.
Maximinus was defeated in the battle fought in Thrace on April 30, 313 and only escaped because he disguised himself as a slave.
Both men later made their sons Caesars and the system by which a man was chosen on the basis of merit was discarded in favor of the time-honored dynastic system under which a man’s son inherited the throne from him.

Although Maximinus retained his region throughout the turbulent years of 306–310, the Conference of Carnuntum in 308 was a bitter disappointment to him because he had hoped for advancement to the rank of Augustus.
Between the usurping Maximinus and the usurper in the West, Maxentius, the tetrarchy established by Diocletian collapsed, and open warfare between rival claimants was inevitable.
Maximinus and Licinius spent the next two years improving their political situations, a race won by Licinius, who gained the goodwill of Constantine the Great.

Maximinus Daia was the sister-son of Galerius, and appointed as his uncle's Caesar when Galerius succeeded Diocletian in 305 AD.
Maximinus demanded he too, should become an Augustus and in 309 AD Galerius gave in.
On Galerius' death, Maximinus hurriedly claimed most of his uncle's territory and even his uncle's wife, Galeria Valeria, who was Diocletian's daughter.

A Follis of Maximinus II The history of the Roman Empire in the late third and early fourth century AD was quite complex with a number of military leaders contending for power.
One extraordinary part of this situation is recorded on scarce bronze folles issued in 308 AD in the names of Constantine I and Maximinus II.
Coins of Constantine and Maximinus showing it are rather scarce but provide an interesting reminder of this turbulent period of Roman history.

Maximinus II Maximinus II Maximinus II The nephew of Galerius, Maximinus "Daia" was chosen as his eastern Caesar under the shaky Tetrarchy of Diocletian.

Maximinus was killed or committed suicide and Licinius had his family executed as well.

 Maximianus, Galerius, Maximinus & Maxentius
To make matters easier, Maximinus I is usually shown with a distinctive 'big chin' portrait quite unlike the stylized heads of the later period.
Usually known as Galerius (Maximianus II would seem equally appropriate), a few antoniniani were issued before the currency reform but most coins seen will be post-reform folles and radiates.
To summarize the rules: (1) Coins of rulers named Maximinus are separate by the fifty years that separated the two.

 History 401: Emperors
By the end of 306 the situation was a follows: Galerius, Augustus in the East, and Maximinus II Daia, Caesar in the East, were ruling in accordance with the plans of Diocletian.
Constantine and Maximinus II Daia resented the promotion of Licinius who had never held the rank of Caesar, and Constantine was particularly angry over his own demotion to Caesar.
Maximinus, although he escaped the destruction of his army, soon afterwards died of a wasting illness at Tarsus in Asia Minor.

His elevation, which was the result of family in­ fluence alone, must have been as unexpected by himself as by others ; but he did not prove by any means such a passive and subservient tool as was anticipated.
galerius valerius maximinus, who originally bore the name of daza, was the nephew of Galerius by a sister, and in early life followed the occupation of a shepherd in his native Illyria.

 Roman Coins of Maximinus I
Maximinus I Thrax, mid March 235 - late May 238 A.D. Maximinus I was a giant of a man, and possessed of natural fighting ability.
Maximinus campaigned with great success against the Germanic tribes, but his great cruelty towards the nobility whom he hated, and general ruthlessness inspired several rebellions, notably the failed Gordian rebellion and then the rebellion of Balbinus and Pupienus.
Maximinus marched against the latter two, and during the abortive siege of Aquileia his troops deserted and murdered him.
