Valentinian I in Roman Biography

Val-en-tin'i-an [Lat. Valenttnia'nus ; Fr. Vai.entinien, vi'loN'te'ne-aN'] I., (Flavius,) born in Pannonia in 321 A.D., succeeded Jovian as Emperor of Rome in 364, and, having made his brother Valens his colleague, reserved for himself the western part of the empire. He carried on wars with the Franks, Allemanni, and other German tribes, over whom he gained several important victories. The Picts and Scots were also defeated, and a rebellion in Africa was suppressed by his general Theodosius. While marching against the Quadi and SvBiaUe, who had invaded Pannonia, Valentinian died suddenly, (375 a.d.) He was a Catholic, but tolerated the Arians.
