Kalends of March


Today is the Kalends of March.  On this day in 293 AD the Emperors Diocletian and Maximian appointed Constantius Chlorus and Galerius as Caesars.  Constantius Chlorus and Galerian eventually became Emperors.  On the death of his father, Constantine seized the title of Emperor.  After a series of wars he became sole Emperor and proclaimed  the legalization of Christianity in the Edict of Milan and became, on his deathbed, the first baptized Christian Emperor of Rome.  Take that Ides of March, always hogging all the limelight!
