Marcus Aurelius Claudius was born in 214. He had the nickname "Gothicus" and was the first of many Illyrian emperors. Claudius was in command of military reserves at Ticinum when Gallienus was killed at Milan. He squashed the rebellion of Aureolus, deified Gallienus, and went north to deal with the Goths. An outbreak of the Plague helped the Romans gain the upper hand over the Goths, but Claudius himself contracted the disease and died.
