Emperor Carinus

Carinus coinsMarcus Aurelius Carinus was the older son of Carus and was appointed governor of the western empire when his father came to power. He was successful in battle against the Quadi tribes in the west but soon tired of battle and returned to Rome to live a more luxurious life filled with women and alcohol. Upon the death of his father in the East, Carinus’ younger brother Numerian was pressured by the troops to lead them back to Europe but died on their return. At this stage the troops nominated the commander of the body-guards, Diocletian as emperor and Carinus immediately left Rome to meet with him. During battle Carinus was killed whether it be by Diocletian’s troops or an assassination ordered by one of his wives.
