Romano-British Empire, Allectus, Early Summer 293 - 296 A.D.

Allectus was Carausius' successor in the breakaway province of Britain. He came to power by murdering his predecessor but lacked the ability to keep his small province separate from the empire proper. He was defeated by Constantius I in 296 A.D.
