Licinius was a tough Illyrian soldier and, in the eyes of Galerius, an ideal choice for emperor in the West.

From A. D. 313 until 324, both Licinius and Constantine ruled the Roman Empire as Augusti.

Licinius' wife Constantia, who was also Constantine’s sister

In A. D. 324, Constantine and Licinius fought two battles after Licinius chased some barbarians into Constantine's territories.
