Flavius Theodosius was born around 346 in Spain and was the son of Count Theodosius who put down the rebellion in Britain. Gratian made him emperor in the East in 379, and Theodosius started to drive back the eastern invaders. In 388, he helped defeat Maximus in the west; six years later he suppressed Eugenius’ usurpation. At this point Theodosius had control of the entire empire, but died in 395 due to dropsy.
